Edited by Anwar M. Shah
The design of a federal system to deal with growth, stabilization, and
regional and local development issues is the primary concern of this
volume, edited by Anwar Shah. The book provides analytical tools to
address issues arising from globalization, localization, and regional
integration. It discusses tax harmonization issues associated with
subnational value added tax administration. It provides a framework for
fiscal discipline in a federal system. Lessons from international
experiences from policies to deal with lagging regions are drawn. The
book empirically examines the effect of fiscal decentralization on the
overall size of the public sector. Finally, it draws lessons from
industrial countries' experiences on local governance.
This important new series represents a response to several
independent evaluations in recent years that have argued that
development practitioners and policy makers dealing with public sector
reforms in developing countries and, indeed, anyone with a concern for
effective public governance could benefit from a synthesis of newer
perspectives on public sector reforms. This series distills current
wisdom and presents tools of analysis for improving the efficiency,
equity, and efficacy of the public sector. Leading public policy
experts and practitioners have contributed to the series.
