Italian Regions Facing a New Crisis: Some Opening Remarks digital
Year: 2021
The paper looks at regional economic structure and performance of Italian regions and reviews some recent contributions focussed on the Italian “Mezzogiorno” with a specific focus on the effect of the 2008 financial crisis and the recent Pandemics (Covid-19) crisis. A comparison between Italy and the rest of the EU indicates a structural difference between the underperforming Italian economy and the rest of the Union due to the specific structure of the Italian economy in terms of sector and firm size and the consequences on strategic and organizational issues of weak small businesses and inefficient medium and large enterprises...

Economy and Development in Calabria: The Weak Development Hypothesis digital
Year: 2021
The Calabrian economy is best described by the paradigm of “weak development”, meaning that the region’s economic system is unable to fully take advantage of periods of economic expansion to bridge the gap with more developed regions and is not equipped to cope successfully with periods of recession. The reasons for the “weak development” of Calabria can be attributed, in general, to external diseconomies...

Economy and Industry in Campania. Which Policy for Lasting Growth? digital
Year: 2021
After a triennium (2015-2017) of relative growth, the economy of Campania (and the Mezzogiorno) has significantly slowed down, and the gap with Centre-North has increased again. Thus, as in the past, the economic, institutional, social, and political aspects of the structural fragility characterizing the region have again made the positive short-term conjuncture little effective in triggering a real and durable process of convergence towards the more developed Centre-Northern regions...

The Two Souths of Alfredo Del Monte digital
Year: 2021
Del Monte’s book deals with the convergence among different and heterogeneous areas of a single country. He has adopted a comparative approach: the two less developed areas are the two Souths, Italy, and the USA. Its purpose is to explain the fact that the famous convergence thesis of neo-classical growth theory holds for the American South but not for the Mezzogiorno. In a first approximation, the answer lies in the fact that growth in the South of the USA and the Mezzogiorno followed two different patterns...
