This paper investigates the convergence process and the distribution dynamics of income among Italian NUTS-3 provinces between 2003 and 2011. Findings show the existence of multiple steady-state equilibria which is consistent with the well-documented persistence in income disparities among Italian provinces.

A large body of the literature showed that related variety at local level is more relevant than unrelated variety for explaining the innovation performance of firms. Knowledge relatedness is usually measured by considering activities within the same industry (i.e. the same two-digit code) while activities in different industries are associated with...

Recent years witnessed a growing interest in the concept of well-being and quality of life, as alternative to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The determinants of well-being, especially at the regional and provincial levels, is understudied in a macro perspective, as opposed to a micro perspective (individuals, survey data) that has been the domin...

The funding role of bank foundations in the Italian economy, especially to the non-profit sector, significantly increased over the last 25 years. This paper constructs a novel measure of social capital at the provincial level that explicitly takes into account the bank foundations’ sectors of intervention (such as education, public health, and art...

Firms in the textile and clothing industry are generally considered as «suppliers dominated» for their innovation model, being characterized by low investment in r&d and little capabilities for autonomous innovation. As a result, technological innovation is not considered a key competitive factor. This situation is supposed to rapidly changing as a...

Most of these papers differs in terms of their theoretical approach as well as their purpose and statistical methodology used to define what well-being is and how to measure it. In this paper, we co...

L’Italia attraversa ormai da quasi tre decenni una crisi strutturale della crescita economica. Le riforme del mercato del lavoro, la moderazione salariale, le politiche di «austerità espansiva» e la deregolamentazione dei mercati reali e finanziari non sembrano aver contribuito a invertire la rotta declinante tracciata dal sistema produttivo italia...

Start-ups increasingly find the prospect of university-industry collaborations to be a powerful driver of innovation and entrepreneurship activity. Moreover, at the geographical level, they are attracted by teaching and research institutions, either public or private. This paper focuses on the role played by universities. Our hypothesis is that geo...

In this paper we show that a money supply rule (a Taylor-type rule) and a Taylor rule produce substantial stochastic differences in the behavior of the economy. Hence it remains an open question whether one or other type of central bank behavior does a better job in welfare terms-contrary to a recent study (Clarida et al.1999) which called Taylor r...

Full-text available
In a variety of recent papers, researchers have found that interest rate behaviour approximately follows a Taylor rule. We show that such interest rate behaviour results when the central bank may be following quite different monetary policy rules from the one proposed by Taylor. In other words, an interest rate relation with output and inflation do...

One measure of the health of the Social Security system is the difference between the market value of the trust fund and the present value of benefits accrued to date. How should present values be computed for this calculation in light of future uncertainties? We think it is important to use market value. Since claims on accrued benefits are not cu...
