What is fiscal federalism and how does it apply to Latin America’s decentralization process and poverty reduction is the central question Eduardo Wiesner is addressing in this book published by the Inter-American Development Bank in 2003. While comparing current decentralization processes in Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Chile, Wiesner provides Latin American (LAC) governments with a new fiscal policy framework.
