Storia economica e pensiero economico: spunti dal caso italiano


  • Pierluigi Ciocca

    () (Banca d’Italia, Roma)


This article is intended to build a bridge between economic history and the history of economic thought in the Italian nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Are chosen and in-depth episodes and phases concerning the development, stability, income distribution in the Italian economy during the two centuries. The attention is focused in particular on the links between competition and technical progress in the growth trend of the economy; the lira exchange and behavior of firms in the period between the two wars; transition from instability to stability of the banking system in the years after the 1950; negative correlation between acceleration in economic growth and inequality in the personal and territorial distribution of income. With reference to each of these nodes the latest results of research in economic history are juxtaposed with ideas of contemporary and subsequent economists in front of those same events.
