Develops a new approach to the theory and practice of regional development planning in a Third World context.

As experience with decentralization has accumulated, perceptions of both the problems that often accompany decentralization and the best ways to deal with them have evolved. This book draws on experiences in developing countries to bridge the gap between the conventional textbook treatment of fiscal decentralization and the actual practice of subnational government finance. The extensive literature about the theory and practice is surveyed, and longstanding problems and new questions are addressed. There is no simple or single way to get decentralization right. To be successful, scholars of fiscal decentralization must pay close attention to the unique political, economic, and institutional context and objectives in each country. The authors focus on the key choices that must be made in decentralizing, on how economic and political factors shape the choices that countries make, and on how, by paying more attention to the need for a more comprehensive approach and the critical connections between different components of decentralization reform, everyone involved might get more for their money.Bahl and Bird have created a valuable resource for scholars, students, and practitioners from economics, public administration and management, planning, policy analysis, and political science.

After considering the problem of decentralizing rural development in South Korea generally, the authors analyze the proliferation period from 1970 to 1979 of Seemaul Undong--South Korea's so-called New Community Movement -- which was an attempt to achieve an integrated rural development program. The final chapter suggests directions for South Korea and draws implications for development elsewhere.
