Abstract

This article attempts a comparative exploration of center-local relationships as part of an effort to test the effect on public policy of concentration and devolution. To pursue these objectives, the research proceeds in two steps: (1) the identification of longitudinal patterns of public sector concentration/devolution among 17 nations and (2) time series analysis of industrial growth and social welfare progress associated with the temporal variation in public infrastructure. The results suggest that a nation's pattern of public sector evolution may be more of a determinant of policy performance than a nation's constitutional framework. /// Cet article tente une exploration comparative des relations centrales-locales en tant que faisant partie d'un effort pour évaluer l'effet de la concentration et de la décentralisation sur les politiques publiques. Pur atteindre ces objectifs, la recerche procède en deux étapes: (1) l'identification de modèles longitudinaux de concentration et de décentralisation dans le secteur public parmi 17 nations et (2) l'analyse de la croissance industrielle et du progès du bien-être social en relation avec la variation temporelle dans l'infrastructure publique. Les résultats suggèrent que le modèle de l'évolution du secteur public d'une nation serait peut-être un facteur plus déterminant du fonctionnement des politiques que ne l'est la structure constitutionnelle d'une nation.
