Endogenous (De)Centralization and the Russian Federalism
AbstractThe paper provides the econometric study of the factors of distribution of the tax revenue between the levels of government in the Russian Federation based on the framework of the endogenous centralization theory. The first part of the paper considers the distribution of tax revenue between the federal center and the regions based on strategic tax collection; the second part deals with sub-regional aspects of decentralization. The work applies both the traditional econometrics of panel data and Bayesian econometrics.
