This is, however, not possible. 11) include 7I + 2 conditions that must uniquely determine 7I + 2 variables at the efficient allocation: the I -dimensional vectors (x i∗ ), (z i∗ ), (gi∗ ), (l i∗ ), (Mi∗ ), (n∗i ), (Ni∗ ) and the Lagrange multipliers (γ/λ)∗, (µ/λ)∗ . 12), in general. 1. If individuals are mobile and migration cannot be controlled (directly), then the efficient allocation is unique and requires an interregional transfer of resources. 1. Locational efficiency with self-sufficient regions.

5 Outline of the Book 25 outcome of decentralized tax and expenditure decisions depends on the degree of interregional household mobility and, given any degree of mobility, how the results can be altered by the set of tax instruments available to regions. Chapter 8 Whereas the analysis described so far concentrates on the allocative branch of the government, decentralized redistribution policy is at the core of Chapters 8–10. In Chapter 8, we will assume (a) that regions are connected by a high degree of interregional household mobility and (b) that the government in each region taxes high-income residents and uses the tax revenues to grant transfer payments to low-income individuals living within its boundaries.

2) Ni − Mi ni = 0, i = 1, . . 3) Li − Mi l i = 0, i = 1, . . 7) where γ , µ, and λ are Lagrange multipliers. We mention only those that are needed in the following. 1), the planner maximizes the utility of a representative mobile resident in region 1. 2) reflects costless migration of mobile households by ruling out interregional utility differentials that would be incompatible with free locational choices. 4) requires the same for the fixed regional endowment of land. 6) state that mobile households and firms must locate somewhere in the federation.
