Political Economy in Federal States: Selected Essays of Stanley L. Winer

Employing data from Canada, the United States, and Austria, these 12 essays examine the political economy of fiscal federalism, inter- regional migration and public policy, empirical macroeconomics, and applied equilibrium settings. Specific essays discuss topics like the evolution of the tax structure, jurisdictional re-assignment, special interest groups, and fiscally-induced internal migration. The Canadian experience with both fixed and flexible exchange rate regimes is used to test hypotheses about the macroeconomic consequences of subcentral fiscal policy, the internal transmission of economic activity, and the relationship between monetary growth and political popularity. The integration of economics and politics is central to the collection. Winer teaches public policy and administration at Carleton University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
