This paper provides a simple model to explaining the political and economics interdependence between di¤erent level of governments. We derive precise predictions that the probability that an incumbent being re-elected depends on her political alignement with an upper level of governments, moreover we study the link between alinement and the size of the local public sector. We test these predictions using a new dataset on Italian, central, regional and local elections and public finance.
