Our dataset combines local council election data with fiscal data on grant allocations in the German state of Hesse. Our identification strategy is a regression discontinuity design that relies on a perturbation procedure to classify close elections. We find that left-wing state governments favored aligned municipalities while right-wing state governments favored unaligned ones. One plausible explanation for this difference in the behavior of left- and right-wing governments is that only few local councils had absolute right-wing majorities during the tenure of the right-wing state governments. Therefore, right-wing state governments had to use transfers to “buy off” unaligned municipalities, while left-wing state governments could use transfers to enhance their electoral prospects.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-02-25T10:21:41Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Baskaran, Thushyanthan</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Political alignment and intergovernmental transfers in parliamentary systems : evidence from Germany</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
