Strategic delegation under the subsidiarity principle

November 2015


This paper presents a model of centralisation, where the decision to centralise policy making is based on the subsidiarity principle. It shows how and when strategic delegation incentives facilitate the misallocation of public goods. We argue that less subsidiarity is desirable when decentralised governments use the subsidiarity principle to force distorted policies.
