Theories of interjurisdictional competition
What behavior can be expected from state and local governments, given market-analogy theories of intergovernmental competition (competition enhances efficiency) and game-theoretic models (competition is destructive)?

Kenyon Discussion: Caroline M. Hoxby, Andrew Reschovsky
