Endogenous Elections, Electoral Budget Cycles and Canadian Provincial Governments
The existence of manipulative electoral budget cycles and opportunistic election setting is examined in the framework of a parliamentary democracy. Empirical tests are conducted using a pooled time series cross section data set derived from Canadian provincial governments over the 1962-92 period. Evidence in support of the electoral budget cycle hypothesis, but not the opportunistic election timing hypothesis, is obtained. Copyright 1998 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
