IV Workshop on Fiscal Federalism “Decentralization: Political Accountability, Corruption and Economic Outcomes” - Barcelona Economics Institute
Decentralization impacts the political and economic environment in many ways. One of its possible consequences is a reduction in the information asymmetries between citizens and politicians. The aim of this workshop is to analyze the extent to which decentralization affects the accountability of political institutions, levels of corruption, and economic outcomes like innovation, economic growth, and the reduction of poverty. Several related questions may also be discussed during the workshop, such as the effectiveness of lobbies in a decentralized environment, the ability of a decentralized system to react to macroeconomic shocks, the determinants of decentralization, and so on.
