G., (2019) “Decentralisation and income inequality in Central and Eastern European countries” Post-Communist Economies, Vol.31 No.1, pp. 123-136||Journal:||Post-Communist Economies||Abstract:||This paper provides empirical evidence for the association between fiscal decentralisation and income distribution for a panel of 11 economies from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) during 1992–2016. We focus on three research topics: the effect of decentralisation on income inequality; the effects of the structure of subnational government finance on income inequality; and the validity of the Kuznets hypothesis. The main findings from the empirical exercise are as follows: first, we provide firm evidence on the presumed favourable effects of fiscal decentralisation on income distribution in the CEE countries; second, our empirical model suggests that the effects of fiscal decentralisation on income inequality are dependent on the source of finance of subnational governments, i.e. intergovernmental transfers may have a role in income equalisation; third, we cannot confirm the validity of the Kuznets hypothesis in CEE countries.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12188/6806||DOI:||10.1080/14631377.2018.1461526|
