The Challenge of Local Government Size

Theoretical Perspectives, International Experience and Policy Reform

Edited by Santiago Lago-Peñas and Jorge Martinez-Vazquez

Expert contributors in economics and political science offer a comprehensive breakdown of the issue of local jurisdiction fragmentation and provide recommendations for successful policy reform. Topics discussed include economies of scale, the costs and benefits of voluntary and forced amalgamation programs, the correlation between government size and corruption, privatization, and inter-municipal cooperation. A combination of theory and empirical evidence provides depth and makes this book an invaluable addition to the literature.
