Abstract

L’idea secondo la quale lo sviluppo economico possa essere in parte mediato da caratteristiche valoriali-culturali, si sta diffondendo anche tra gli economisti. Il dibattito, tuttavia, sembra essersi focalizzato solo marginalmente sulla relazione tra valori culturali e decisioni individuali con significative ripercussioni sullo sviluppo economico, come quelle relative alla scelta di svolgere un’attività a carattere imprenditoriale. Questo lavoro prova a verificare empiricamente per l’Italia, le determinanti di tale scelta. Accanto a variabili tradizionalmente utilizzate in analisi di questo tipo, il lavoro considera anche caratteristiche individuali di tipo culturale collezionate nella World Value Survey. I risultati mostrano che alcuni valori sono significativi nella scelta di svolgere un’attività imprenditoriale, soprattutto se considerati congiuntamente come “sindrome culturale”. A tal proposito si mostra come la sindrome dell’”efficienza responsabile” sia il mix di valori e disvalori che meglio spiega la decisione di svolgere un’attività di tipo imprenditoriale.
