Consumer credit in Italy. Diffusion and territorial differences
AbstractThe analysis sets out to clarify whether households’ demand for consumer credit can be adequately explained by models presented in the literature (life-cycle and permanent income) or whether other factors are observable, such as the use of debt to alleviate financial difficulties. With this in mind, the research seeks to establish whether specific determinants characterise the consumer credit market in different areas of the country. The Bank of Italy Survey on Household Income and Wealth for 2004 (SHIW) is used to identify determinants of consumer credit and the possible existence of territorial specificity.
