Abstract

Several attempted redistributive land reforms in Colombia have been systematically blocked by the political influence of the landlords. Although, the decentralization process seeks to multiply the social decision spaces in order to bring them closer to the median voter, its fiscal emphasis entails a number of perverse effects. One of these has been to increase the veto power of the landlords. Moreover, the increasing number of “effective political parties” at the local level makes it more difficult to change the status quo since this means a larger number of veto players.
