Abstract

After a brief description of the evolution of inequality and poverty in Italy since the beginning of the crisis, we describe the most relevant changes introduced in Italian social policies during 2014 and the first months of 2015. The paper concludes with the discussion of a much debated theme during 2015: the possible introduction of a minimun income scheme against absolute poverty
