Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Excessive bureaucratic and administrative centralization

Regional and local governments frequently face restrictions in raising resources to finance present or potential spending. Central authorities often regulate the few local sources of revenue by controlling tax rates, prohibiting increases in user service charges, and limiting the means for revenue collection and enforcement.


The ever-increasing centralization of governmental and organizational functions in the modern world has produced a widespread dissatisfaction and in some cases has become self-defeating. Centralization is associated with delay, bureaucratic red tape, and the erosion of local initiative.
