Lobbying, Spillovers and the Benefits of Decentralization

Author

  • Cheikbossian, Guillaume

Abstract

In the presence of spillovers, decentralized provision of local public goods may lead to a higher surplus than centralized provision even if localities have identical preferences. Indeed, free-riding costs associated to decentralization may be larger than the costs of lobbying activities under centralization.
