Impact de la décentralisation sur la taille du secteur public : le cas de la France
This article makes an attempt to evaluate the impact of the French fiscal decentralization on total public expenditure level. We estimate the econometric model initiated by Oates  on the 1960-2006 period, taking into account the various factors explaining government size (Wagner?s law, weaker economic growth, etc.). Our estimations results highlight three phenomena : (1) expenditure decentralization is associated with a smaller public sector ; (2) the 80?s transfer of responsibilities attenuated the negative effect of expenditure decentralization ; (3) tax revenue decentralization has a positive impact on government size.
