The Electoral Budget Cycle
This article begins with a review of the now substantial literature on the thesis that politicians manipulate governmental outputs so as to favor their chances of reelection. It concludes that while this "electoral cycle" thesis was initially overstated by its proponents, it retains more plausibility than recent critics have allowed. This conclusion is then demonstrated through an analysis of expenditures by the ten provincial governments in Canada between 1951 and 1984. Copyright 1992 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
