Abstract

In this interview for the Istituto Regionale di Ricerca della Lombardia, Eugene Steuerle explains how balance among various principles is required when engaging in public finance policies. In particular, he stresses the need for balance in a federal system: the goals of uniformity and equality often lead toward centralized solutions, while experimentation and diversity often call for decentralized decision-making.
