dc.description.abstractIn this paper, we take up the question why a group of sovereigncountries is willing to form a federation even if residents of the high-incomeregion suspect potential immigrants to be net beneficiaries of the tax andtransfer system. We argue that income uncertainty alone cannot satisfactorilyexplain the formation of federations, since in many existing and developingfederations income differences are both large and persistent. In themodel presented here remaining separated involves costs for the high-incomeregion, which can be regarded as a proxy for the efficiency loss caused if mobile factors cannot reallocate. A fiscal equalization scheme that shares theresources saved by limiting costly migration between the regions can makeboth regions better off.en_US
