Elementi di una teoria dell'impresa sociale
[Elements of a theory of social enterprise]
AbstractFrom an idealtypical perspective, an enterprise is social if it offers, with a binding commitment to governance, merit goods and services of the commons, using in a non-privatistic manner the most part of profits that may be obtained. This definition is discussed in relation to the characteristics of economic goods, the range of forms that the social enterprise assumes, and its possibility of branching in the economic system.
