Déterminants politiques des transferts de l’État vers les communes: le cas de la DGF

Revue économique, 2019, vol. 70, issue 1, 53-66

Abstract: We analyze the allocation of a government transfer (the DGF) to cities in France. If the transfer is governed by rules, these rules are so complex that they may hide discretionary biases.?Our empirical analysis reveals that such biases exist, and are used, favoring some electoral ?fortresses.?
