Demerits of the Revealed Preference Theory Whereas the R.P. theory has several merits as compared with the earlier theories, it is not free from defects: (1) It is based on strong ordering and as such does not admit of indifference. But since observed choice implies a number of possible alternatives, indifference cannot be ruled out altogether. The consumer is sometimes confronted with alternatives which are equally desirable and he is hesitant to choose between them.

(b) A turnover tax at each stage of production adds to the .price of the commodity at the final stage, and is, therefore, borne by the ultimate consumer. In the case of raw materials, it adds to the cost of production and raises the prices of manufactured goods. Such a tax is said to discourage trade and industry, and hence its incidence may be much widespread due to its adverse effects on trade and industry. It may create unemployment and thus make the workers suffer.

Importance of Incidence of taxation The study of incidence is very important. The tax system is not merely aimed at raising a certain amount of revenue, butt the aim is to raise it from those sections of the people who can best bear the tax. The aim, in short, is to secure a just distribution of the tax burden. This obviously cannot be done unless an effort is made to trace the incidence of each tax levied by the State.

His enunciation of the canons of taxation has hardly been surpassed in clarity and simplicity. His four celebrated canons are as follows:— 1. Canon of Equality. Equality here does not mean that all tax-payers should pay an equal amount. Equality here means equality or justice. It means that the broadest shoulders must bear the heaviest burden.
