POLITICS AND INTERJURISDICTIONAL TRANSFERS: THE ROMANIAN CASE

Mihai Ioan Mutascu () and Bogdan Dima ()

Urban/Regional from EconWPA

Abstract: this paper represents a continuation of a previous paper where we demonstrated the “abnormal” behavior that local authority from Romania is manifesting regarding the subventions received from the central budget. In accord with public choice theory, exist an “affinity” of a social group - local communities in this case - for a certain political party or political coalition, in which case can expect that the distribution of public funds, having the nature of transfers given by the central budget to local budgets, to be impregnated with a considerable “political color”. This paper is trying to establish, in Romania, quantitative and qualitative, the modality of distributing the central public funds to local authorities under the political impact.
