The equitable sharing of the benefits arising from planned development is a subject of lively contemporary debate. One of the tasks being carried out by the System and Decision Sciences Area of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) concerns the treatment of planning and redustribution problems in ways that can provide some guidance to decision makers in the formulation of economic policy. This report examines the first part of a study undertaken to assess the redistributive leverage provided by different instruments of planning. It is devoted specifically to the analysis and computation of optimal redistributive policies in small, general equilibrium models of economic planning.
