Gilbert, Guy and Pierre Picard. “Incentives and Optimal Size of Local Jurisdictions,” European Economic Review 40 (1996): 19-41. [Science Direct]
Summary: This paper presents a model of optimal territorial decentralization in which smaller local governments have an informational advantage concerning public goods' production costs and the central government has imperfect information on spillover effects induced by local projects. The attention is focused on the optimal size of local entities and on the shape of transfer schedules from the central government to local jurisdictions.
