Thus, it is almost impossible to maintain such temporary and frequently informal arrangements in the face of financial difficulties. The main point here, however, is that such arrangements are only possible in differentiated associational models and not in integrated ones. Only in the differentiated model can there be negotiations on separate budgets; only there are corporate actors able to bargain over, and come to terms on, the modalities of the exchange. A common budget, due to its accompanying lack of transparence, runs the risk of resulting in an unplanned, asymmetrical allocation of resources, as the case of the Federal Republic shows (see also Schimank 1993).
