Abstract

The mayoral elections in May are part of a plan put in place by George Osborne to reinvigorate local government in the UK. “The old model of trying to run everything in our country from the centre of London is broken,” he said in 2015. But does decentralisation make government more innovative – and if so, why? Brian Adams looks at the case for (and against) decentralising policy decisions.
