Year: 2020
In the last five years the Italian manufacturing sector has reduced the growth gap vis-à-vis the euro area, in the face of a continuing growth differential in the service sector. The improvement of cost ompetitiveness is among the factors that led to this recovery in the manufacturing sector...

The ‘‘Big 5’’ Personality Traits and Union Membership: An Empirical Analysis newdigital
format: Article | RIVISTA INTERNAZIONALE DI SCIENZE SOCIALI - 2020 - 1. An Issue in Honour of Carlo Dell’Aringa | Open Access
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 newdigital
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 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 newdigital
format: Article | RIVISTA INTERNAZIONALE DI SCIENZE SOCIALI - 2020 - 1. An Issue in Honour of Carlo Dell’Aringa | Open Access
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...

Year: 2020
.Attempts to reform the Italian civil service in the last 30 years have been mainly done mimicking private sector practices. The results have been quite disappointing. Useful hints can be obtained from a principal-agent model, with regard to the difficulty of measuring output and – even more – outcome...
