Local fiscal inflation in France : an unexpected consequence of the growing importance of metropolitan areas ? (In French)
This paper intends to question the current development of metropolitan areas in France, and its induced effects. Contrary to the expected benefits (lower costs for the production of public services, scale economies), metropolitan, areas in France has entailed an increase in local taxes and tax burden. Although a part of this fiscal inflation can be attributed to a better quality of public services, the idea that this inflation is the normal result of the strategy of mayors will be stressed.
