    () (Universita' Politecnica delle Marche, MoFiR)


La Costituzione Italiana, articolo 47, "incoraggia e tutela il risparmio in tutte le sue forme". Esplicitamente attribuisce al risparmio il ruolo di bene pubblico fondamentale per il sistema economico e sociale. Dobbiamo chiederci perche' il risparmio e' cosi' importante da essere considerato nella carta costituzionale. La risposta a questa domanda puo' essere articolata riprendendo in esame le caratteristiche generali del risparmio, le sue principali determinanti, le fonti private, pubbliche e internazionali del risparmio, le forme di impiego attraverso il sistema finanziario, gli effetti sullo sviluppo economico. The Italian Constitution, article 47, "encourage and safeguard saving in all of its forms". Explicitly the role of fundamental public good for the economic and social system is attributed to saving. The question is to explain why saving is so important to be considered in the Constitution. The answer needs to consider different aspects of saving, like: general characteristics; main determinants; private, public, and international sources; different uses through the financial system, impacts on the economic growth.
