Intergovernmental Transfers and Political Representation

Intergovernmental Transfers and Political Representation
Intergovernmental transfers from the central level are an important source of revenue for most subnational governments in developing countries. This importance is likely to grow even further considering ongoing decentralization initiatives in Latin America and elsewhere. This paper investigates whether the transfer of mechanisms in place in Argentina, Mexico, and Brazil satisfy a set of basic propositions: (a) equity principle: poorer jurisdictions are not treated less favorably than better off ones; (b) incentive principle: subnational tax effort is encouraged; and (c) political nondiscrimination principle: electoral, partisan or other political constellations play no role in determining the distribution of transfers. Strikingly, politics do seem to matter. This paper concludes that the political and budgetary institution reform must go hand in hand if a rational system of fiscal federalism is to evolve.

Expanding Access to Financial Services in Latin America

release date: Jan 01, 1995
Expanding Access to Financial Services in Latin America
Expanding Access to Financial Services in Latin America examines how macroeconomic conditions and adjustment processes have affected efforts to incorporate small businesses into national financial systems. Constraints include restrictive monetary policies, inflation and high interest rates, as well as the informal and under-capitalized nature of a sector traditionally excluded from access to banking services. Policy recommendations from case studies on Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, Peru and Uruguay point to the importance of market-based allocation tools and a growing role of nongovernmental organizations at different levels of the credit management process.

Strengthening the Financial Sector in the Adjustment Process

Strengthening the Financial Sector in the Adjustment Process
With Latin America's economic adjustment process in full stride, national financial systems in the region face the challenge of promoting and balancing savings and investment. Strengthening the Financial Sector in the Adjustment Process assesses the gains and setbacks of financial systems in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay. The studies look first at the structure, costs, regulations and efficiency of the financial systems, taking into account national macroeconomic conditions and other characteristics specific to each country. In Argentina, a successful stabilization program serves as the starting point for analysis of the financial sector. The persistence of high inflation directs the Brazilian study to the relationship between the financial system and the inflationary process. The Colombian financial system is depicted as segmented and somewhat less developed, although reform policies in place since 1990 have helped unify the system. Finally, the Uruguayan study points to two peculiarities of the country's financial system: it is highly dollarized and the only banks are public or foreign.
