''Political decentralization, redistribution, and government quality''
( 2021, Vol. 41 No.4 )
We consider how government quality mediates the relationship between political decentralization and income redistribution. Our main hypothesis argues that the potential of political decentralization to mitigate inequities arising from economic activity depends on government quality. Our empirical evidence based on a panel of 45 countries over the period 1996-2016 provides strong support for this hypothesis.
Keywords: Political Decentralization, Redistribution, Government Quality.
