I'm trying to model the impact of increases in revenues for a local casino. The casino pays a relatively high tax rate (about 13%) to the local government. When I run the scenario with the expected increase in revenues as an industry change, the results don't show any impact on local government employment even though there would be a substantial increase in local government revenue. Is there a better way to model this, for example by separating the increase in revenue for the casino into two components, one for the revenue that the casino gets to keep (as an institutional change) and one for the revenue that is passed through to the city (as an institutional spending pattern change for the local government non education sector)? I tried doing the latter, and the results look reasonable, but the total size of the direct effects is too small (i.e. doesn't show the entire effect). Thanks
