Abstract: 
This paper presents a selective and non-technical survey of the role of intergovernmental equalization transfers as a device for achieving efficiency in the allocation of labor across regions in a decentralized nation, and for achieving fiscal equity among residents of various regions. We discuss some of the issues that arise in attempting to put the principles of equalization into practice.
