En este trabajo se analizan las disposiciones de los nuevos estatutos regionales y proyectos de estatuto que intentan condicionar en alguna medida el diseño del nuevo sistema de financiación regional. Prestamos especial atención a las implicaciones del nuevo Estatuto catalán en el que se fijan las líneas generales de una reforma que podría suponer un cambio cualitativo en la estructura y filosofía del sistema.

    ABSTRACT: Several empirical studies have established the relationship between economic freedom, civil liberties and political rights, and economic growth. Nevertheless, few studies analyze the directions of causality. This paper studies the causality relations between the institutional dimensions mentioned above and economic growth, as well as the interrelations between them, using the Granger methodology with panel data for 187 countries and five-yearly observations for the period 1976–2000. In addition, the relations between these freedoms and investment in physical and human capital are examined, to be able to isolate the direct and indirect effects on growth.

Moreover, the positive effect of fiscal decentralization on government quality is reduced by electoral and decision-making decentralization in poor and medium income countries whereas these forms of decentralization seem to improve the impact of fiscal decentralization on government quality in rich countries.
