Politiche di sostegno della domanda in presenza di elevato debito pubblico
This article presents an economic policy proposal, aiming at stimulating the growth of the Italian economy over a period of unsatisfactory performance and limited possibility to expand the government expenditure due to the high level of public debt. The basic idea is a Keynesian one: using fiscal incentives to increase the consumption/income ratio of the private sector. In this way private action may become a substitute for (impossible) government action. A simulation of the envisaged incentive policy by means of an econometric model of the Italian economy (Prometeia model) helps estimate the likely effects of the proposal.
