Abstract

This book compiles huge information, maybe the largest in Spain, about the Spanish decentralization process. Even if the decentralization is still a working issue in Spain, we can say that the main a most important footstep took place during the period 1984-1998. This is precisely the period that this book analyses. The research presented uses the “Functional Classification of Spending”, what is the most relevant one relating how the Public Administration performs the best use of its different expenditures. In this sense, the book presents how the spending changed within and among the different levels of government in Spain (Central, Regional, and Local) during the period analyzed. At the same time, we judge how the different expenditures’ changes followed the world while rules predicted by the “Fiscal Federalism Theory”, mainly supported by professors Olson and Oates.
