Zur Kontroverse um den Finanzausgleich in Deutschland
[On the Controversy of Fiscal Equalization in Germany]
The paper discusses the features of fiscal equalization in Germany and its recent challenges, notably those related to re-unification. It analyzes its distributional effects of the Finanzausgleich, which are found to be strong, sometimes even reversing the order of State fiscal endowments per capita after redistribution. It also looks into the disincentive effects that accompany the fiscal arrangements..
