Fiscal Decentralisation and Inclusive Growth

image of Fiscal Decentralisation and Inclusive Growth

Intergovernmental fiscal frameworks, as considered by the OECD Network on Fiscal Relations Across Levels of Government, are a core driver of inclusive growth. Certain institutions and policies can contribute to a more equitable distribution of economic gains across jurisdictions and income groups, such as equalisation systems. In particular, the quality of public sector outcomes depends on how responsibilities and functions such as education or health care are shared across government levels. This implies that intergovernmental fiscal frameworks, which drive the division of roles of the central and sub-national governments, critically influence growth and the inclusiveness of an economy. This book brings together academics and practitioners to address key aspects of intergovernmental fiscal relations and country experience, as they relate to inclusive growth.

Foreword

The rules and practices that govern fiscal relations among different levels of government administration, such as their respective responsibilities in tax, spending and debt management, have a bearing on economic efficiency and ultimately growth. A growing body of evidence also links intergovernmental fiscal arrangements with income distribution within countries.
