Abstract

Local authorities deliver services that seek to contribute to the socio-economic development of countries, and increasingly, these services fulfil the non-basic needs of citizens, including cultural and tourism initiatives. This article studies the impact of local public expenditure for non-basic service delivery on the cultural and socio-economic satisfaction of the population, with a specific case study of a conurbation where spending for recreation is anomalously low. It is found that citizens respond positively only to substantial expenditure but are dissatisfied if such expenditure is small and does not reach a minimum-level threshold.
