|Title:||Structural Reform in Australian Local Government||Contributor(s):||Dollery, Brian Edward (author); Byrnes, Joel David (author); Crase, Lin (author)||Publication Date:||2008||DOI:||10.1080/10361140802035820||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3071||Abstract:||Amalgamation has always been the favoured Australian policy instrument for improving the efficiency of Local government. However, this policy consensus has flown against mounting evidence that amalgamation not only often fails to reduce costs, but also generates significant unintended negative consequences. This note considers various recent reports into Australian Local government and argues that earlier policy consensus on the efficacy of Local council amalgamation has vanished.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Political Science, 43(2), p. 333-339||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Place of Publication:||Abingdon (Oxon), United Kingdom||ISSN:||1036-1146||Field of Research (FOR):||140218 Urban and Regional Economics||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 186
