dc.description.abstractThis paper adds to the literature by utilizing improved data on tax revenue decentralization tore-examine the relationship between fiscal decentralization and the size of government. Aneconometric analysis using panel data from 18 OECD countries shows that fiscaldecentralization matters for both the size and composition of government spending. Taxrevenue decentralization is associated with a smaller public sector, while expendituredecentralization is associated with a larger public sector. The former effect seems to be drivenby a reduction in social security transfers, while the latter effect seems to be driven byincreased government consumption.en_US
