Policy diffusion and the competition for mobile resources

Author

  • Schneider, Andrea

Abstract

Reforms are often introduced in one region and afterwards adapted by other regions. This paper analyzes a model where policy diffusion can be explained by competition for mobile resources. I provide conditions under which initially symmetric regions realize reforms sequentially and a reform initiated in one region is afterwards adapted by another region. Forward-looking agents anticipate the policy convergence and respond less to the reform than the current difference in policies would imply.
