We sent an initial questionnaire to all the cities participating in the project to learn about the economic and financial situation of their municipality, their tax legal system and the impact the world economic crisis is having in their municipal finance system. The Major Cities Participating in the project can find the answers to this initial questionnaire, together with other additional information in the folder of each city in the Registered Users Zone. Reading this information, one can identify the common problems and challenges the current economic situation poses to Major Cities and learn from other experiences.
Taking the answers provided to the initial questionnaire, after a careful analysis, four different experts in Tax Law and Public Finance have summarized and compared the answers of the different Major Cities in four Working Papers. Read these Working Papers to learn about the similarities and differences in the public finance of the Major Cities in different parts of the world.
