Abstract

The objective of this paper is to show that the current global economic crisis, in which also Italy fell in 2008, represents just the last step of a long declining path for the Italian economy which began in the nineties, or to be more precise in 1992and 1993. In particular, I argue the reasons which explain the long Italian decline, and partly also the deeper recession today, as well as the lack of recovery from the current crisis, can be found in the past reforms of the labour market. In particular the labour flexibility introduced in the last 15 years, which had, along with other policies introduced in parallel, cumulative negative consequences on the inequality, on the consumption, on the aggregate demand, on the labour productivity and on the GDP dynamics.
