O aspecto normativo central da teoria de alocacao de riscos e o principio da dispersao dos riscos: mantendo-se constantes as demais variaveis, riscos dispersos sao menos prejudiciais do que os riscos concentrados e uma maneira de alcancar essa dispersao e atraves do ajustamento das taxas dos impostos. Entretanto, nem todos os ajustes de taxas de impostos dispersam riscos eficientemente: uma maior dispersao de risco e alcancada pelo ajuste das taxas de impostos de base ampla, pois a flutuacao das axas de um imposto estrito estaria a cargo apenas de uma pequena parcela da populacao de um Estado.

A primary normative conclusion of the theory of risk allocation is the principle of risk spreading: all else being equal, dispersed risks are less harmful than concentrated risks. This Essay analyzes the relative harm from allocating the risk caused by fiscal volatility either through spending fluctuations or tax fluctuations.
