ESTEBAN-LALEONA, Sonia; FRUTOS-MADRAZO, Pablo de  e  MIGUEL-BILBAO, María Cristina de. A review of the empirical literature about the relationship between fiscal decentralization and economic growth. Econ. soc. territ [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.36, pp. 349-381. ISSN 1405-8421.

Traditionally, academic debates about the benefits that the existence of multilevel government structures provide have been directly related to the gains in efficiency that derive from the processes of decentralization of the Public Sector. However, as of the last decades, the Public Finance has broadened its analysis towards other questions, one of them being whether the fiscal decentralization influences positively in the economic growth of a country. The objective of this document is to provide evidence on results of the main investigations out of topic, examining, both the temporal and space horizons selected in these studies, comparing the conceptual framework and the methodology used by the different authors.

Palavras-chave : fiscal decentralization; economic growth.
