Zur Kontroverse um den Finanzausgleich in Deutschland
[On the Controversy of Fiscal Equalization in Germany]
AbstractThe paper discusses the features of fiscal equalization in Germany and its recent challenges, notably those related to re-unification.

It also looks into the disincentive effects that accompany the fiscal arrangements..
