    The Economics of Federalism and Federal Reform
    in University of New South Wales Law Journal (The) , Volume 31, Issue 2 ,  2008 ,  553-582
    This article explores the trends in economic theories of federalism and explores what those theories have to say about future directions for federal fiscal reform and for economic reform in the federal context. The author also offers a few concluding comments. He hopes to demonstrate that from what initially was a rather mechanistic economic theory of federalism has flown a much more nuanced theory which challenges a number of orthodoxies in the way many political scientists, often governments, and certainly most economists, think and talk about federal reforms.
