1. Wacławska, Kamila Angelika. Political business cycles in public goods expenditures in Poland and Spain.

Degree: 2015, RCAAP

JEL classifications: H72, D72

In this work the discussion is focused on the empirical test of the presence of opportunistic cycles in municipal budgets of Poland and Spain. In the view of progressive decentralization of public sector, the research is extended by the examination of fiscal autonomy effect. Panel data analysis provides an evidence on electoral cycles in the categories of spending considered in the literature as invisible to the electorate. In particular, local incumbents seeking re-election signal higher competence through manipulation of spending policies associated with social support, environmental protection, public safety and administration. Further research indicates that electoral cycles in Spain are intensified by limited authority of councillors determined by transfers from the central government. The main findings suggest that distribution of fiscal power to sub-national governments may mitigate the effects of political budget cycles.

Neste trabalho a discussão centra-se no teste empírico à presença de ciclos oportunistas nos orçamentos municipais de Espanha e Polonia. Com base na progressiva descentralização do sector publico, a investigação estende-se também ao tratamento dos efeitos da autonomia fiscal. A analise de dados de painel fornece evidencias da existência de ciclos eleitorais nas categorias de gastos públicos consideradas na literatura como invisíveis ao eleitorado. Em particular, governos locais que procurem a reeleição apresentam uma maior evidência de manipulação de politicas de gastos públicos associados atividades como apoio social, proteção ambiental, segurança publica e administração. A investigação indica ainda que os ciclos eleitorais em Espanha são intensificados em concelhos com autonomia limitada e determinada por transferências vindas da administração central. Os principais resultados sugerem que a transferência de poder para os governos locais pode mitigar os efeitos dos ciclos políticos nos respetivos orçamentos.

2. Balmas, Agata Dobrosława. Determinants of public spending at the subnational level: a comparison of polish and spanish local governments.

Degree: 2015, RCAAP

JEL Classification: D72, H72

This study provides a unique comparison between Polish and Spanish local governments with respect to the impact of various political factors on the size and composition of public expenditure. In particular, it aims at verifying the existence of political business cycles as well as partisan effects in the analyzed states at the subnational level. Additionally, the role of fiscal autonomy in shaping the spending decisions and its effect on the magnitude of opportunistic behavior of mayors are also investigated. For the purpose of an empirical research, panel data analysis is applied and a set of equations is estimated separately for each of the countries. Apart from examining total expenses, the level of expenditure on public goods perceived as potentially highly visible to the voters is also considered. The results confirm the hypothesis of an increased spending, both in the aggregate terms and in particular categories, during the pre-election periods. Also, in Poland and Spain higher degree of fiscal authority granted to lower tiers of public administration corresponds to a decrease in the size of public sector. Finally, an evidence of an intensified opportunistic behavior of politicians in the light of greater fiscal autonomy is found.

Este estudo apresenta uma comparação única entre os governos locais de Espanha e Polónia no que diz respeito ao impacto dos vários fatores políticos na dimensão e composição da despesa pública. Em particular, o estudo centra-se em verificar a existência de ciclos políticos bem como de efeitos partidários nos países sobre análise, a um nível local. Adicionalmente, o papel da autonomia fiscal enquanto elemento influente nas decisões sobre gastos públicos e no grau de oportunismos dos decisores políticos são também investigados. Para o propósito da analise empírica, é utilizado dados de painel e o grupo de equações é estimado de forma separada para cada um dos países. Para além de analisar a despesa total, o nível de despesa em bens públicos percebido como potencialmente elevado pelos votantes é também considerado. Os resultados confirmam a hipótese de um nível crescente de despesa publica, tanto em termos agregados como em categorias particulares, durante os períodos pré-eleitorais. Também, em Espanha e na Polónia um grau elevado de autonomia fiscal garantida para os nível baixos da administração pública corresponde a um decréscimo do tamanho do sector público. Finalmente, são encontradas evidencias de intensificação do comportamento oportunista de políticos em ambientes de maior autonomia fiscal.
