Fiscal Equalization for State and Local Government Finance-ExLibrary

Product Details

Synopsis
This volume examines the public policy challenges of fiscal disparities, their sources, and how states are addressing them. States have spent considerable effort and money to reduce fiscal disparities among local governments, particularly in the area of education finance. Several options to reduce inequalities, including local option taxes, tax base sharing, and shared tax systems have met with varying degrees of success. Here public finance experts discuss the implementation of creative public policies for dealing with fiscal disparities. Particular attention is paid to school equalization, including the division of fiscal responsibilities between state and local governments, potential funding sources, and what is necessary to achieve school equity.

Reviews
‘…remains contemporary….Unlike many volumes of this type, the papers strike a nice balance between the requisite economic theory and statistical methodology, and the lucidity required for accessibility by the policymaker. Anderson should also be complimented on his choice of authors. The ten scholars included in this work are among the most well respected experts in state and local finance in the USA….useful to all those interested in an accessible review of current academic thought on fiscal equalization. The papers offer valuable insights on how best to go about improving the quality of K-12 public education in the United States through a more equal distribution of resources across school districts.’-Economics of Education Review ‘œ…remains contemporary….Unlike many volumes of this type, the papers strike a nice balance between the requisite economic theory and statistical methodology, and the lucidity required for accessibility by the policymaker.
