The Assignment of Fiscal Responsibility in a Federal State: An Empirical Assessment

Finds that variations in the observed assignments of fiscal responsibility are consistent with those predicted by the conventional literature and the degree of interjurisdictional competition present in these systems influences educational expenditures.
