The paper critically examines the system of fiscal decentralization in Ethiopia as defined in proclamation 33 of 1992 from the legal point of view and precipitates the political and economic impacts thereof. Its findings are that the system is ambiguous, internally inconsistent and conflicts with the political paradigm of federalism as provided for by the different legislations including the Charter of the Transition period.
