To understand the origin of such disparities and the characteristics of the winners and the losers, we propose an overview of the evolution of income and wealth inequality during the Great Recession and, in particular, an evaluation of the polarization of income and wealth at the extremes of the distribution...

format: Article | RIVISTA INTERNAZIONALE DI SCIENZE SOCIALI - 2020 - 2
Year: 2020
It is well known how high and persistent is the Italian public debt and its cost borne by citizens. Less known is the territorial dimension of the redistributive effects of this burden. In this article we try to shine a light on the regional financial redistribution of government securities in Italy over a long period of time. According to our findings, the financing burden, estimated using alternative criteria, is borne by all regions and, for most regions, the enjoyed benefits, as securities holders, are not sufficient to offset the amount paid through taxes...

Sorting, Social Comparison and Women’s Job Satisfaction digital
format: Article | RIVISTA INTERNAZIONALE DI SCIENZE SOCIALI - 2020 - 1. An Issue in Honour of Carlo Dell’Aringa | Open Access
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...

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...
