Summary
Collection of papers that deal with indicators of fiscal decentralisation. Taking the OECD Fiscal Decentralisation Database as the starting point, the chapters address the measurement of tax autonomy or taxing power; the intricacies of tax sharing systems and their difference with respect to intergovernmental grants; and the measurement of true spending power when sub-central spending is influenced by central government. The first chapter of this book summarises the common findings, concluding that - although revenue decentralisation and tax autonomy emerge as the cornerstones of fiscal decentralisation - there is no single "true" indicator but that measuring intergovernmental fiscal frameworks requires a multi-dimensional approach. The book and its chapters are based on a conference held in Paris in spring 2011 on "Taxonomy of Grants and the Measurement of Decentralisation"
