Sub-national governments in Cambodia, China and Vietnam all raise less than 5 percent of total revenues from own sources. (Taliercio, 2005). 2. Inter-governmental Transfers No policy instrument of fiscal decentralization is more discussed, or more often reformed, than inter-governmental transfers. On the one hand, transfers are preferred to local taxation in most developing and transition countries because they recognize the superior tax administration capabilities of the central government and because they allow a greater measure of central control.
In a truly decentralized governance system, stabilization policy is more difficult to implement than in a centralized system. One reason is because the central government may not be able to control sub-national government spending so as to reduce an overall deficit. If the lower levels of government have their own resources — either significant own source revenues or a guaranteed share of national government collections — they may set their own level of spending. In many decentralized countries, sub-national governments do not face a hard budget constraint, and a more serious challenge to macroeconomic stability can emerge.
