Federal-State Fiscal Arrangements in Malaysia
AbstractThis is the first of two papers on issues of federal-state finance and intergovernmental transfers in Malaysia. In this paper we outline what we see as the major issues, discuss the theory of the assignment of tax and expenditure powers and the resulting need for intergovernmental transfers, and look at the Malaysian situation in the context of this theory.
