important question: Why do we not see greater decentralization in developing countries, ... than fiscal decentralization, resulting in larger fiscal gaps than in developed countries. Results lend support to using the subsidiarity principle in theoretical frameworks. This paper looks whether fiscal decentralization is associated with trust of citizens in government related institutions. This satisfaction helps in building a cadre of satisfied managers, who feel their responsibility towards company’s work.

Fiscal Decentralization: Benefits and Problems Active tax competition, in short, tends to produce either a generally low level of state–local tax effort or a state–local tax structure with strong regressive features.

At the same time, responsibility for education and skills programmes, including design, financing and service delivery, is assigned to different levels of government.

Third, the number of developing countries that have devolved responsibilities to state and local governments has increased over the past 15 years, as have fiscal gaps. The literature on the importance of fiscal decentralization in affecting environmental quality is scant, and thus, this study attempts to fill the gap by incorporating the linear and nonlinear terms of fiscal decentralization as possible determinants for CO 2 emissions. We expect a positive relationship based on the argument of governments' improved responsiveness to preferences of citizens that is perceived to result from more decentralized fiscal systems. %%EOF Copyright © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Decentralization is an important tool for satisfying human needs of power, independence, status and prestige. An organisation would choose to be decentralized because of the following importance of decentralization: 1. An important and fundamental argument in favor of fiscal decentralization is the subsidiarity principle as discussed by, for example, Tiebout (1956) and Oates, 1972, Oates, 1999. As fiscal decentralization is generally lower in developing than in advanced economies, it becomes increasingly important to analyze whether fiscal decentralization should be expanded in the former group. important determinants of individuals’ earnings potential.
