Abstract

En este trabajo se estudian los efectos negativos de los esquemas de nivelación horizontal sobre la eficiencia en las elecciones fiscales de los gobiernos regionales. Partiendo de unos resultados teóricos básicos, se examinan los aspectos dinámicos del problema, se ofrece alguna evidencia empírica para el caso español y se presenta una solución que combina los criterios de eficiencia y equidad. La conclusión principal es que la incidencia de los desincentivos se puede reducir de forma significativa, sin renunciar a un nivel de equidad elevado. Desde este punto de vista, se analiza la última reforma del sistema de financiación de las Comunidades Autónomas y se alude a la discusión teórica sobre los mejores indicadores de capacidad fiscal de una región y sus implicaciones para el caso español. Classification-JEL : H73, H77.
