Эндогенные Границы И Распределение Власти В Федерациях И Международных Сообществах
[ENDOGENOUS BOUNDARIES AND DISTRIBUTION OF POWER In the Federation]

  • Libman, Alexander Mikhailovich
Registered author(s):

    Economic policy in the modern world is mostly an outcome of interaction of numerous territorial centers of authority (countries or regions). However, the borders between these regions and the degree of centralization of economic decision-making in the system are endogenous to the internal logic of its development. This book surveys the literature on economics of conflicts and endogenous decentralization, dealing with the structure and borders of jurisdictions.
