This study "Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations" by Debbie Budlender and Julia de Bruyn, based on the South African case, discusses the allocation of responsibility for expenditure and powers to raise revenue to different spheres of government. A system of intergovernmental fiscal relations includes the construction of a system of transfers to overcome the problem of "mismatch" between such responsibilities and powers.
