Inter-regional Fiscal Flows: Introduction to the Issues

Chapter 1 in The Political Economy of Inter-Regional Fiscal Flows, 2010 from Edward Elgar Publishing
Struggles over what a region receives, or should receive, from the budget of the central government are common to many countries. Discussions often focus on the measures of ‘net fiscal flows’ or ‘fiscal balances’ provided by the government or other actors. This unique book shows just how these flows are computed then interpreted and clarifies the often misunderstood economic and political motives that explain why some regions receive more monies than others.
