La finestra di fronte. La théorie de la régulation vista dall’Italia
[Facing Windows. La théorie de la régulation from Italian view]
In this paper we show how French Theory of Regulation has been considered in the Italian political economic debate. The Regulation Approach givessome explanations of the Fordist crise, by using methodological toolswhich are based on an historical- analytical one. It is relevant that themain book which gave life to Regulation Approach ("A Theory of Capitalistic Regulation", by Michel Aglietta, first edition 1976) hasnever been translated in Italian. Nevertheless many ideas from Regulationits have been spread during the 90's in the socio-politicalItalian debate about Post-fordism, and have been also influenced Italianneo-Schumpeterian analysis on the innovative firm. The reasons of the scarce fortune of Regulation Theory in Italy should be explain refering toa sort of provincialism in the Italian studies in economic theory whichare more affected by Anglo-Saxon economic literature than French one; secondly, if we consider the Italian heterodox studies during the 70's because of the monopoly of the Italian Marxian-Sraffian debate about"transformation from values to prices". In section 2 we analyse the Marxist theoretical backgrounds of Regulation Theory in relation with themonetary approach followed by the Italian scholars of Monetary CircuitTheory (Graziani et alii). In the last section we argue that the debatebetween French Regulation Approach and Italian Workerism represents the fundamentals of the recent hypothesis of Cognitive Capitalism.
