L’evoluzione della Costituzione in Belgio e in Italia: un’analisi delle relazioni fiscali intergovernative
The discussion around the adequateness of the Constitution to the current economic setting is still ongoing. To see where, this discussion will lead eventually, it is interesting to compare the Italian decentralization process with a similar process undertaken in Belgium. This contribution compares Belgian and Italian decentralised processes and their outcome in terms of national fiscal settings. It is argued that political and economic factors are to be analysed jointly if one wants to understand decentralization trends. The potential for politico-fiscal conflicts seems lower in Italy, while the probability of secession might be higher in Belgium.
