Abstract

Zuweisungen sind ein wichtiges Instrument übergeordneter politischer Entscheidungsebenen zur Lenkung des kommunalen Ausgabenverhaltens und insbesondere des Investitionsverhaltens. Wie die empirischen Befunde zeigen, können je nach Ausgestaltung der Zuweisungen sehr starke Abweichungen vom ursprünglichen Ausgabeverhalten erreicht werden. Allerdings verdeutlichte der hier präsentierte sicherlich sehr selektive Überblick auch, daß die klassische Zuweisungstheorie nur unvollständig das reale Ausgabeverhalten kommunaler Gebietskörperschaften erklären kann. Weiterführende Erklärungsansätze, wie etwa der "Displacement Effekt" und der "Flypaper" Effekt, haben dazu beigetragen, die von der klassischen Theorie abweichenden empirischen Befunde zumindest ansatzweise zu erklären.
