Year: 2021
The role played by RISSDA (as RISS was called up to 1933) in its first years of publication goes much beyond the sheer publication of interesting articles. The argument of this essay is that by inserting the Italian Social Catholic intellectuals into the network of the European Catholic Social Movement, RISSDA allowed the elaboration and diffusion across Italy of ideas that were proving effective in contrasting conservative and socialist solutions to the challenges of the time...

Italian Catholic Social Thought from the Mid-19th Century to the Early 20th Century and the Debate on Solidarity and Subsidiarity digital
Year: 2021
Between the 19th and 20th centuries, the growing social question prompted Italian Catholic circles to reflect on capitalism, its results, and the correction of its dysfunctions. A crucial step came with the rise of neo-Thomism and the work of Luigi Taparelli d’Azeglio, who saw subsidiarity as a fundamental principle in shaping state intervention. Two approaches then arose: one linked to Curci that was more historically and theoretically based, and the other, with Liberatore among its main exponents, more focused on an analysis from the viewpoint of natural law...

A New Solution to an Old Problem: a Temporary Equilibrium Version of the Ramsey Model digital
Year: 2020
According to the prevailing literature on capital accumulation with infinite horizon, convergence toward the optimal path requires that individuals are able to select the unique convergent (saddle) path. This is tantamount to assuming that individuals have ‘‘colossal’’ rational capabilities. Conversely, any minor deviation from the saddle-path would inevitably lead to a crash onto a zero per-capita consumption path...
