The study focuses on taxation and expenditure choices by local governments, local government funding decisions by central governments, and the assignment of tasks and fiscal powers to each tier of government. The theoretical analysis is mostly based on mathematical models, and agency models in particular, while the empirical analysis relies on microeconometrics techniques and the use of panel data.
