For a theory of social enterprise and social finance


  • Nicolò Bellanca

    () (DISEI, Università degli studi di Firenze)


On an ideal-typical basis, an enterprise is social when it supplies, under a restricting commitment of governance, commons-related services and merit goods and uses the majority of possible profits in a non-privatistic manner. This definition is debated by discussing the features of economic goods, the frame of molds in which social enterprise explicates, its connection with social finance, as well as its possibilities of ramification within the economic system.
