Year: 2020
We study how individuals with different personality traits exhibit different personal propensity to unionise. While traditional models of trade union membership state that workers are rational decision makers and highlight benefits and costs of union membership, a growing literature investigates the effect of other factors on individuals’ decisions...

Sorting, Social Comparison and Women’s Job Satisfaction digital
Year: 2020
Using linked employer-employee data for the UK we address competing explanations for gender gaps in job satisfaction. Previous studies have rationalized the puzzling greater satisfaction of women either by pointing out gender differences in competitive attitudes, or through differences in sorting across jobs and industries. Our data allow us to test both explanations within a unified framework. The employer-employee structure of the data enables us to control for workplace unobserved heterogeneity that drives sorting...

EU Funding for Gender Equality: The Need for a Gender Responsive Budget digital
Year: 2020
The paper discusses how gender mainstreaming is applied in the EU funding allocations for 2014-2020, with focus on the EU Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and the main EU funding programmes. The analysis shows that notwithstanding EU commitment to gender mainstreaming, gender budgeting is not systematically applied in the EU multiannual budget and in the analysed programmes...

Heterogeneous Returns to Education in Italy digital
Year: 2020
The estimation of the return from an additional education unit is subject to the ‘‘ability bias’’, responsible for the ‘‘endogeneity’’ of education to wages, and the ‘‘return bias’’, induced by self-selection into education levels based on individual-specific unobservable gains. We use a control functions estimator that, differently to standard instrumental variables, can account for both selection mechanisms. It adds two corrections terms to the wage equation, one for each selectivity source...

Marx’s Views on English Social and Labour Legislation digital

The aim of this paper is to look at Marx’s analysis of British social and labour legislation and compare it with those offered by other authors both in the liberal and the socialist camp.

New Statistical Units for a Better Quality of National and European Business Statistics digital
Year: 2019
At a European level, discussion of the correct application of Council Regulation (EEC) No 696/93 on statistical units started many years ago, as it has been incorrectly applied in many countries. The correct application of the regulation envisages aggregating the legal units under common control when they do not have sufficient decision-making autonomy...

Does the Past Count? Sovereign Debt during the Classical Gold Standard through the Lenses of Mover Stayer and Markov Chain Models digital
Year: 2019
...We study sovereign debt markets behaviour during the Classical Gold Standard (CGS) Era (1880-1913), i.e. the first era of globalization characterized by free movement of capital and a fixed exchange rate regime. In particular we analyse both the issues of markets memory and the degree of confidence in sovereign debt markets by means of three stochastic models: Markov Chain (MC), Mover Stayer (MS) and Non Homogeneous Markov Chain (NHMC) estimated on two-state transition matrices of countries switching from sound to distressed...
