Abstract
Cel - Celem artykułu jest prezentacja stanu aktualnej wiedzy na temat wad i zalet federalizmu fiskalnego. Niedawny światowy kryzys finansowy stanowił impuls do weryfikacji dotychczasowej oceny wad i zalet. Metodologia badania - Artykuł bazuje na przeglądzie literatury dotyczącej problematyki federalizmu fiskalnego. Wniosek - Wnioski w ypływające z przeglądu badań na temat federalizmu fiskalnego wskazują na to, że zalety przewyższają nad wadami jedynie, gdy federalizm fiskalny wdrożony jest w warunkach dobrze funkcjonującego systemu instytucjonalnego i gdy istnieje efektywny mechanizm wspomagania najbiedniejszych regionów przez pozostałe, czyli istnieje mechanizm redystrybucji. Oryginalność/wartość - Praca umożliwia zapoznanie się z wynikiem dotychczasowych ustaleń co do bilansu kosztów i korzyści stosowania federalizmu fiskalnego, co stanowi głos w dyskusji na temat wad i zalet zwiększenia autonomii regionów w realizacji zadań państwa czy UE.(abstrakt oryginalny)

Purpose - The aim of the article is to present the state of current knowledge concerning the advantages and disadvantages of fiscal federalism. The recent global financial crisis was an impulse to verify the current assessment of these advantages and disadvantages. Design/methodology/approach - The article is based on a review of literature on the subject of fiscal federalism. Findings - The conclusions stemming from this review indicate that the advantages exceed the disadvantages only when fiscal federalism is implemented in conditions of a well-functioning institutional system and when there is an effective mechanism for supporting the poorest regions by others, i.e. a mechanism of redistribution. Originality/value - The paper enables getting acquainted with the results of the current arrangements regarding the balance of costs and benefits of using fiscal federalism, which is a voice in the discussion on the advantages and disadvantages of increasing the autonomy of regions in the implementation of state or EU tasks.
