The Intertemporal Relationship between State and Local Government Revenues and Expenditures: Evidence from OECD Countries
AbstractThis paper addresses the intertemporal relationship between state and local government revenues and expenditures in sixteen OECD countries. The results support both the spend-and-tax hypothesis and the tax-and-spend hypothesis. The results also highlight the importance of controlling for the effects of grants in bivariate causality tests between revenues and expenditures at the sub- national level. The paper also provides a comparison of the intertemporal relationship between government revenues and expenditures at the central and subnational levels.
