Product description

Review

"Across the world, federations and quasi-federations come in all shapes and sizes. Their welfare and redistributive consequences are also strikingly different. In this terrific, sophisticated, agenda-setting book, Pablo Beramendi explains why. The Political Geography of Inequality is a must-read."
Carles Boix, Princeton University

"By integrating the study of inequality with the study of federalism this ambitious book casts new light on both. The theoretical synthesis Beramendi proposes helps explain such diverse phenomena as why some countries and regions are better able to respond to economic shocks, why some countries can sustain higher levels of redistribution and equality, and why it is so difficult for currency unions like the Eurozone to succeed. The book is a remarkable achievement that will have a major impact on the field of comparative political economy for years to come."
Torben Iversen, Harvard University

"The design of fiscal unions is a topic of central importance not only in Europe but in all countries with some degree of local autonomy. In a methodologically sophisticated analysis, Beramendi destroys several stereotypes according to which local autonomy must be associated with a high degree of individual inequality. This is an eye-opening contribution."
Adam Przeworski, New York University

Book Description

This is a book about redistribution and inequality in political unions, a form of democracy that involves several levels of government and that encompasses about one third of the population living under democracy around the world.
