Reforming Fiscal Federalism for Global Competition: A Canada-Australia Comparison
Reforming Fiscal Federalism for Global Competition presents a series of essays that examine how relationships between central and subnational governments in federations shape their economies. The papers compare Canada and Australia, but also draw upon the examples of Europe and the United States. In Reforming Fiscal Federalism, writers consider how regionalism, local and international trade, tax assignment policies, and political bias affect the ability of federations to work within rapidly changing global markets.
