Federal Fiscal Constitutions. Part II: Risk Sharing and Redistribution
The paper studies the political and economic determinants of inter-regional public transfers. It points to an important difference between two alternative federal fiscal constitutions. The paper shows that inter-regional transfers can be determined either by a federation-wide vote over a centralized social insurance system, or by bargaining over intergovernmental transfers. When regions are asymmetric, the federal social insurance system leads to a larger fiscal programme.
