Electoral cycles in MPs’ salaries: evidence from the German states

Members of parliament (MPs) often set their own salaries. Voters dislike self-serving politicians, and politicians are keen to please voters. In line with political business cycle theories, politicians thus may delay giving themselves a salary …


Gender bias in the spending of child benefits: evidence from a natural policy reform

We examine the causal relationship between child benefits and household spending on child and adult goods. In particular, we examine whether it matters if it is the husband or wife who controls this income transfer. We exploit the introduction of …


Central-local government fiscal relations and cyclicality of public spending: evidence from China

Über diese Zeitschrift

International Tax and Public Finance serves as an outlet for first-rate original research on both theoretical and empirical aspects of fiscal policy, broadly interpreted to include expenditure and financing policies. A special emphasis is on open economy or, more generally, interjurisdictional issues: the interaction of policies across jurisdictions and the effects of those policies on economic (and political economy) outcomes. This international/interjurisdictional focus is not, however, an exclusive one: high quality contributions in any area of public finance (e.g., single-country tax reform analysis) will also be welcome.

A feature of International Tax and Public Finance is the inclusion of a special section—Policy Watch—discussing a current policy issue or reviewing some recent developments. Facilitating communication between academic work and policy practice serves many purposes—researchers need to know policy priorities and policy-makers need to absorb the products of academic research. Policy Watch provides a forum within which such discussions can take place.

Letztlich sind digitale Strategien immer dann erfolgreich, wenn sie ein positives Kundenerlebnis über alle Touchpoints hinweg im Blick haben.
