Abstract

A confronto con i dati relativi al resto delle economie avanzate, la situazione occupazionale dei laureati in Italia si presenta come un’anomalia di segno negativo. Sebbene in crescita, la quota di popolazione laureata è ancora inferiore rispetto a quella delle altre economie. Malgrado questa loro scarsità relativa, i laureati italiani, in particolar modo quelli più giovani, percepiscono un premio salariale più basso e hanno minori possibilità di occupazione. Sebbene questa situazione sia verosimilmente il risultato dell’interazione di diversi fattori, la spiegazione più coerente con la realtà descritta chiama in causa le rigidità del sistema produttivo, che non sembra in grado di sfruttare le opportunità rappresentate dalle nuove tecnologie e dall’aumento dell’offerta di lavoro qualificato disponibile ad un costo relativamente basso. A ciò si aggiungono gli ostacoli all’accrescimento ulteriore della quota di laureati, i problemi di mismatch e gli effetti delle istituzioni di mercato del lavoro e della loro evoluzione.
