Does Intergovernmental Transfers Cause Flypaper effect on Local Spending?
This study investigates whether the intergovernmental transfer leads to the flypaper effect in the province level during 1995-2002. By using the panel data, the results demon-strate that intergovernmental transfers cause the flypaper effect. Our findings also show that the flypaper effect exists heavily at east region as a backward area than west region as a well-developed area. This finding supports the previous research in districts and municipali-ties.
