Fiscal Decentralization and Development: Experiences of Three Developing Countries in Southeast Asia
Palgrave Macmillan IDE-JETRO Series
Although most rationales for fiscal decentralization are derived from developed countries, decentralization has become a growing trend in the developing world. This has brought about fundamental changes in the paths of development, both at a local level and in intergovernmental relationships.
This book uses detailed statistical data from three developing countries in South East Asia to provide an empirical analysis of the influence of fiscal conditions on development, with a focus on regional inequalities and health services.
