|Title:||Introduction - Symposium on Amalgamation and Financial Sustainability in Local Government: Part 2||Contributor(s):||Dollery, Brian E (author); Grant, Bligh (author)||Publication Date:||2013||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/13888||Abstract:||Despite the longstanding nature of local government as a topic of academic inquiry, the question of financial sustainability and in particular council amalgamation as a means of improving the operation of municipalities continues to be a salient feature of local government studies writ large. Grounded in the claim that municipal population size bears a strong relationship to financial sustainability, programs of structural reform and in particular council amalgamation continue to be pursued, despite the absence of empirical support for this claim. This Symposium focuses on the effects of amalgamation on the financial sustainability of local government.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Public Finance and Management, 13(3), p. 142-147||Publisher:||Southern Public Administration Education Foundation Inc||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1523-9721||Field of Research (FOR):||160509 Public Administration||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.spaef.com/article/1439/Introduction||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 148
