Decentralization of social protection expenditure and economic growth: A cross-country analysis
This paper examines the effect of the degree of decentralization of social protection expenditure on economic growth, using panel data for 25 countries over the period 1990-2005. Our results show a positive impact on economic performance of the subnational share in total government expenditure on social protection. This finding is in fact robust to the inclusion of additional explanatory variables in the analysis and is not driven by any specific country.
