    U radu se istražuju političko-proračunski ciklusi (engl. political-budget cycles: PBC) na lokalnoj razini u Republici Hrvatskoj. Istraživanje obuhvaća razdoblje od 2002. do 2011. i provodi se na uzorku od 19 županijskih središta, Grada Zagreba i Pule. U navedenom razdoblju održana su tri ciklusa parlamentarnih izbora (2003., 2007. i 2011.) i dva ciklusa lokalnih izbora (2005. i 2009.), te su svi rezultati prikazani na razini odabranih gradova. Rezultati istraživanja ne potvrđuju postojanje oportunističkog PBC-a i upućuju na restrukturiranje ukupnih rashoda uslijed institucionalnih ograničenja prisutnih na razini gradova. Uz empirijsku analizu prikazani su različiti teorijski modeli PBC-a i pregled empirijskih istraživanja o postojanju PBC-a u razvijenim i tranzicijskim zemljama, te u zemljama u razvoju.
