Abstract [en]

This paper examines Norwegian intergovernmental grants and whether or not there is an advantage in being aligned with the government, as well as if the distance from the capital has an effect in the distribution of the grants. Using municipal data between 2003 and 2016, I estimate the effect using a fixed effects model. I find no evidence of a correlation between alignment and grants received, neither if alignment is confined to the right or the left of the political spectrum. Furthermore, when performing a sample split to observe the effect of distance on grants, no effects are visible.
