The insightful essays in Fiscal Aspects of Evolving Federations, each authored by a leading public finance scholar or practitioner, offer fresh looks at how these new federal hierarchies might best be structured. Particularly attractive is the balance of theory and practice. The more theoretical chapters address important real world questions; the more applied chapters draw on sophisticated economic applied chapters draw on sophisticated economic reasoning. The book is an important contribution to the federalism literature." Robert P. Inman, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and NBER

"We are living in an era characterized by interplay of centrifugal forces contributing to disintegration of existing federations and centripetal forces which induce the formation of new ones. This excellent volume is devoted to the role of the fiscal decentralization on the formation and visibility of federations. The collections of essays, written by leading experts in North America and Europe, provides a superb birds-eye view of important problems of fiscal federalism in several countries and regions, as well as a through theoretical and applied analysis of these issues which arise in various forms of federations. This volume is certainly an indispensable tool for students of fiscal federalism and for practitioners involved in national--subnational relationship within a federation."
