El Fondo Común Municipal: ¿Cuál es el rol en la Convergencia de Ingresos Locales?
AbstractThis paper analyze the role of FCM in the convergence process of the income governments with a panel data of 345 municipalities for the period between 2001 and 2011. Using quasi-experiments and dynamic equations demonstrated that the FCM doesn’t have a significant effect in the increase of the convergence speed, evidencing the ineffective of this territorial policy in the reduction of disparities in long term. The weak develop of the decentralization and the low incentives of the municipalities to obtain own resources, promotes the emergence of strategic behaviors that distort the redistributive effect of the FCM in municipalities, decreasing its impact in the reduction of territorial disparities in Chile.
