Equality Principles and Resource Allocation Mechanisms: Policy Implications

Marc Balaguer Puig

The aim of this paper is the design of an analytical framework that enables the systematical study of the resource allocation mechanisms used by the public sector.

To design this framework, four principles steaming from the theories of justice and from the literature on welfare States and social policy are identified: right, need, merit and utility. Using the analytical framework developed, it is shown that these four principles can be nailed down into a typology of allocation mechanisms, that represents how public institutions are solving distributional issues in our societies.

This typology of resource allocation mechanisms is analyzed through the following criteria: effectiveness, discretion, transparency and robustness in order to evaluate those mechanisms and thus its validity for the public policies analysis.

Key words: Public Policy; Financial Resources; Policies Analysis; Policies Evaluation; Proposal
