      Economic growth of less-developed economies is key to closing the gap between rich and poor countries. Dif-ferences in the economic growth rate of nations often come down to differences in inputs (factors of produc-tion) and differences in TFP—the productivity of labor and capital resources. Higher productivity promotes fasterFile Size: KB. By John H. Coatsworth. The numbers tell the story (see the tables). Brazil is underdeveloped because its economy failed to grow or grew too slowly for most of its history. In the colonial era, sugar, gold and slavery did not create a dynamic economy.

        This is the introductory essay for the Economics of Federalism, a book edited by the authors and forthcoming in Edward Elgar Publishing's ECONOMIC APPROACHES TO LAW series. This essay discusses the major issues and theories concerning federal political systems, which we define as systems that have a hierarchy of at least two distinct state and Cited by: Economic growth and political stability are strongly related. The uncertainty associated with an unsteadfast political environment may decrease investment and the speed of economic development. Moreover, weak economic performance may lead to government fall down and political instability.

The process of decentralization is integral to federalism. Economic federalism has its own advantages. With the responsibility of taxation and government spending being distributed, the economic process speeds up, leading to faster growth.

Also specific authorities can have better functional knowledge over specialized domains. We show that federalism will lead to higher economic growth. We present a model of endogenous growth where government services, funded by income and capital taxes, are a component of : John William Hatfield.

Economic theory suggests that sound and efficient financial systems - banks, equity markets, and bond markets - which channel capital to its most productive uses are beneficial for economic growth.

To understand the effect of decentralization on economic growth, we use the model of endogenous growth developed by Uzawa,Lucas,Barro, The endogenous growth model of Barro () includes a role for government, which provides a public good necessary for production, and this public good must be financed by by: We show that federalism will lead to higher economic growth.

We present a model of endogenous growth where government services, funded by income and capital taxes, are a component of production. In this model a decentralized government will choose tax policy to maximize economic growth, while a centralized government will not do so.This book provides a comprehensive account of the principles and practices of fiscal federalism based on the currently accepted theoretical framework and best practices.

The traditional topics of assignment of responsibilities, intergovernmental fiscal arrangements, fiscal competition, and grants are covered in a unified framework with Author: Robin Boadway, Anwar Shah.
