Region: Emilia-Romagna


Position/Role

Full professor of political economy and director of RECent, a research center of the Marco Biagi Department of Economics at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia

Professional career

After an undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Modena in 1980, she obtained a Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (USA). Between 1987 and 1993 she was an assistant professor at Brown University in Providence (USA). In 1993 she became an associate, and in 2000 a full professor, in Modena. She has been a visiting professor at several institutions including the University of Oslo, European University Institute, Royal Holloway-University of London, New York University, IGIER-Bocconi and Université Catholique de Louvain. She has coordinated the Group of Evaluation Experts for the Economics and Statistics Area within the 2011-2014 Italian National Research Evaluation run by ANVUR.

Scientific results

Graziella Bertocchi’s research belongs to the fields of political economy and macroeconomics, with a focus on the interactions between economic development and institutions in a historical perspective. In particular, she has studied the determinants and consequences of the empowerment of social groups such as women, youths, ethnic minorities, and migrants. For instance, in a recent paper she has coded the citinzenship laws applied across countries and analyzed their evolution in the face of migration flows, taking into account other factors such as the legal tradition, the level of democracy, the demographic equilibrium, the structure of the welfare state, and geo-political stability. She has also contributed to the analysis of wealth inequality and its link with inheritance systems and taxation showing that, historically, primogeniture favored wealth concentration and that the current decline in inheritance taxation can be explained by a relative decrease in inequality. In another complementary research line she has focused on family structure and the determinants of gender gaps, in terms of education, financial decisions, and sexual behavior. In particular, she has shown how in Africa the spread of polygyny is associated, especially for women, with marital infidelity and vulnerability to HIV contagion.

Francesca Bettio

Economy and Finance area

Competences: labor economy, population economy

Keywords:

Region: Tuscany


Position/Role

Full professor of Economic Policy at the Department of Political Economy and Statistics, University of Siena, Italy

Professional career

Francesca Bettio graduated in political science, economics major, from the University of Bologna, then in economics from the University of Naples (Portici), London School of Economics (MSc) and University of Cambridge (GB)(PhD). Her doctoral thesis was published by Clarendon Press (Oxford) in 1988. In 1984, she resumed teaching in Italian universities as researcher in Rome (La Sapienza) and as associate professor in Salerno and Siena, where she was appointed full professor in 2000. Besides long years of postgraduate training in the UK, she also spent research and teaching periods in Europe, the US and Africa at Columbia University, the New School for Social Research (New York), the American University (Washington), St. Antony’s College (Oxford), Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (Maputo) and Cape Town University.

Since her Ph.D. in the early eighties, she has collaborated intensely with the European Commission. Since 1996 she has periodically coordinated networks of community experts formed from time to time to assist the Commission on the topics of female work and gender equality at the Directorate-Generals for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion and for Justice and Consumers. During more than 30 years of EC activity, she has expounded at many EC summits, publishing many research monographs in collaboration with Alina Verashchagina and other experts. Nine of them were published in EC or EU journals or volumes. She has also offered consultancy and research for Italian local government, especially on the question of gender budgets. In 2000 she co-founded the website inGenere.it to which she contributes regularly.

Scientific results

In the volume based on her doctoral thesis, she offered the first historical reconstruction of the evolution of female employment and salary gender gaps in Italy from the industrial revolution to the 1980s. In this volume and theoretically, she contributed to debate on the factors influencing pay and earnings disparity between men and women and the sex-typing of jobs (occupational segregation), developing what has come to be called the low value added hypothesis.

In the early 1990s, she and Paola Villa developed a Mediterranean model of female participation in the work force and fertility, which drew the attention of scholars to the paradoxical pattern of low employment/low fertility in Mediterreanean countries in contrast with high employment/high fertility in northern countries. The idea created a ripple in the literature and is still topical. Later, in collaboration with experts, including Janneke Plantenga, Paola Villa and Annamaria Simonazzi, she developed a taxonomy of “care regimes” that continues to have a substantial following in the international literature, and in the specific case of elderly care helped introduce the so-called migrant in the family model.

Finally, stimulus received in EC circles was determinant for two lines of research that are proving fertile. The first rests on evidence that the pension disparity between men and women is still very high in Europe, and that in Italy it is even higher than labour earnings disparities. The second concerns links between violence against women, economic status of women and gender equality in general. An important result emerged in a recent collaboration with colleagues Gianni Betti and Elisa Ticci: a methodological innovation enabling measurement of degrees of violence made it possible to show that countries “more equal” from the gender viewpoint tend to have lower indices of domestic violence.

Position/Role

Head of the Bank of Italy's Customer Protection and Anti-Money Laundering Service

Professional career

After graduating in Economics and Commerce at the University of Bergamo in 1985, she continued her education with a master's and doctorate in Economics at the London School of Economics. In 1989 she joined the Research Department of the Bank of Italy, where she worked until 1999 in the Sectoral and Territorial Analysis Offices and then Flows and Financial Structures (which she has held since 1997); then, since 1999, in the new unit of Economic Law, which she has managed since 2007. Since 2014 she has been the Head of the Customer Protection and Anti-Money Laundering Service, created that year within the Banking Supervision. During the course she taught at the University of Bergamo and Tor Vergata, she was a visiting fellow at Harvard University and Economic Councilor of the Minister of Justice.

Scientific results

The research activity has followed the professional path. In the early years it concerned issues of industrial economics, aimed at analyzing the Italian productive structure. A series of works, started with a joint research group Banca d’Italia - Consob - other researchers, was then dedicated to building original information and analyzing the governance of Italian companies and banks; some reform proposals have emerged. A third area concerned regulation and the role of institutions. The in-depth analyzes and analyzes in particular in the field of civil justice - carried out also with other researchers of the Bank of Italy - were the basis for identifying (and in some cases dealing with) different criticalities of the system. The coordination of an extensive research project on the role of women in the Italian economy (with over 20 contributions by researchers) provided original analysis on the situation in Italy, the causes and possible policy responses. Finally, recently, the analyzes and interventions concern the subjects covered by the institutional role: the protection of banking customers, financial education, anti-money laundering, and have resulted in an increasingly targeted supervisory activity.

Position/Role

Economist in the labor market division and economic structure of the economics and statistics department of the Bank of Italy

Professional career

After graduating in Economics and Social Sciences and a three-year degree in Business Economics from the Bocconi University, she continued her education with a PhD in Economics from the London School of Economics, obtained in 2016. In December 2014 she joined the Bank of Italy as an economist. In the past she worked for short periods at the Rodolfo Debenedetti Foundation, the European Commission and the Center of Economic Performance (LSE). Her research interests are related to labor economics, in particular to the economics of education and gender.

Scientific results

The research activity of Marta De Philippis takes place in the field of the labor market and education systems. In this context she studied the consequences on the quality of teaching and research of university professors of incentive systems that are strongly (or exclusively) result-oriented in terms of academic publications. She also studied the determinants of gender differences in obtaining purely scientific degrees (STEM) and, on average, higher paid, leading them in part to preferences regarding future job opportunities. She then contributed to the analysis of female participation and how it also depends on intra-family interactions, showing that pension reforms have greatly increased female participation, and male participation mainly through intra-family interactions, and that a reduction in time displacement would have beneficial effects on female participation, including through the effect on their partners.

Scientific results

The research activity of Veronica De Romanis takes place in the field of European economic policy, the female labor market and fiscal and monetary policy in Europe during the financial crisis. For example, in the book “Il Caso Germania” the various tools put in place to finance aid to countries in difficulty are illustrated, such as the European Stability Mechanism, but also the new rules agreed on the fiscal side (the Fiscal Compact, the Six Pack , the Two Pack, etc.) and the unconventional tools introduced by the European Central Bank (the SMP, the MTO and the QE). European governance is explained from the point of view of Germany, a country that has tried to reconcile "solidarity" with states in difficulty with "responsibility" among the economies that share the single currency. In particular, debtors were asked for austerity measures in exchange for aid. The latter were considered by various analysts to be the cause of the deep recession that countries like Greece had to face. In the book "Austerity makes us grow" he analyzed the impact of fiscal consolidation policies implemented in several European countries, including Spain, Greece, Ireland and Portugal, on economic growth. Particular attention was paid to the Italian case. The book shows that in countries where "good" austerity is implemented, that is the mix of unproductive spending cuts and reforms, the economy starts to grow again. When, on the other hand, governments concentrated the adjustment on the revenue side, the effects were recessive. Moreover, implementing "austerity" measures does not necessarily make the elections lose. In countries where "good" austerity has been implemented, the current premieres have been reconfirmed.

Editorial work and publications

Veronica De Romanis is the author of three monographs for Marsilio publishers: "Austerity makes us grow", 2017, "The German Case", 2013 and "The Merkel Method", 2009.  She collaborates with various newspapers and magazines (including Aspenia, Corriere della Sera, FirstonLine, Il Foglio, Il Messaggero, Panorama, Istituto Affari Internazionali) on issues of public finance, European integration, international economic policy, labor market with particular attention to female occupation.

Chair in Public Economics at the University of Brescia

Professional career

BA in Economics at the University of Genova (Italy) followed by a Master in Social Science and a D.Phil in Economics at the University of York (UK). Since 2000 she has a chair in Public Economics at the University of Brescia. From 2009 to 2014 she was in the Board of SIEP (Società Italiana di Economia Pubblica), from 2012 to 2014 she is Vice President. She is Associated Editor of Health Economics, Editor of PLOS ONE and Associate Member of CIRIEC Scientific Committee.

Scientific results

Public economics and regulation are the main themes of my academic production from fiscal federalism (with particular reference to the problems of determining the relationship between spending and grants-in-aid in a context of asymmetry of information) to the design of optimal contract for health care (primary care, hospital care, emergency admissions)

 

More recently, the focus of my research has been on issues related to competition between public and private hospitals, the effects of fiscal federalism in health care, patient mobility at national and European level, soft budget constraint policies. Alongside these more traditional themes, my new area of interest is the study of incentives for innovation in health care, precision medicine, drug price regulation and its effects on innovation. Another important and relevant theme for its policy implications concerns the study of tax evasion, in particular in a dynamic context where the long-term effects of such behaviour may have important consequences on assett allocation and economic growth.          A network of collaborations with economists around the world and colleagues and scholars of other disciplines has made these activities possible.

Region: Veneto


Position/Role

Full Professor of Political Economy at the University of Verona

Professional career

After graduating in Economics and Banking at the University of Siena in 1993, she continued her education with a master's degree in Economics at the Bocconi University in Milan (1995) and a PhD in Economics at the University of York, UK (2000). From 2001 to 2007 she was a researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Economics in Jena (Germany) and from 2008 to the 2012 Research Group Leader / W2 Professor at the same research institute. In 2008 she won one of the Minerva positions offered by the Max Planck Society to support the search for excellent women. In 2011 she moved to the Economics Department of the University of Verona where she became a full professor in 2015.

Scientific results

Maria Vittoria Levati's research activity takes place within the experimental and behavioral economy and responds to the need to contribute to the understanding of economic behavior through (controlled) laboratory and field experiments. Particular attention is paid to the use of game theory to elaborate sophisticated models of choice, alternative to the widely used homo oeconomicus model. One of her main interests was understanding and shaping the phenomenon of voluntary contribution, often found both in the laboratory and in real life. The fact that people vote, take part in collective actions, take care of the environment and donate to charitable organizations suggests that the rigid hypothesis of self-interested behavior is not pervasive, although the results of collective action are far from being optimal. The objective of her research was on the one hand to analyze the behavior of individuals in the presence of so-called social dilemmas; on the other, to identify institutional mechanisms that promote the social optimum. Another of her strands of research has focused on the theory of bounded rationality and, in particular, on the fundamental concept of the theory of Herbert Simon, or on the "satisficing", a compound term of satisfy (satisfying) and suffix (to be sufficient). In this context, together with her collaborators, she generalized and applied the concept to contexts with strategic interaction, in particular to finished games with n. players.

Scientific results

a. You should lower risk taking in the equity market, contrary to the usual prescription of target date funds, due to the negligible personal disaster risks you face during working life.

b. Markets correctly price surviving firms, while defaulting firms disappear. Stock price therefore exceeds (unconditional) firm value, the more the higher is bankruptcy exposure. This bias, due to defaulting firms having lower profits than surviving ones, generates a discount on companies when diversification helps survival and reduces bankruptcy costs. This insight finds support in both the excess survival of US diversified firms and its co-variation with their discount.

In this domain, she has written papers on commodity prices determination using models able to identify fundamental and speculative components. Recently, the research focus has switched to the effectiveness of the ECB monetary policy, the link between sovereign risk and bank risk-taking (i.e. the bank-sovereign nexus) and the time varying behavior of fundamentalists and chartists in the exchange rate markets. Another strand of her research was centered on corporate finance and regulation. She carried out research, then published on peer reviewed journal, on the value creation of M&As in the banking sector, on the impact of the adoption of internal rating models on the cost of capital and on the relation between leverage and profitability. Adding to her research accomplishment, she established and expanded the outreach of the MdR, the first museum fully dedicated to financial literacy, and succeed to manage the IntesaSanpaolo Charity Fund according to the best international practices. In her project activities “gender gap” has been at the core of various original initiatives for arising the public awareness on the topic.

Position/Role

Full professor at Sapienza University of Rome

Member of various associations, including SIE, Storep, EAEPE, IWPLMS, and expert counsellor at CNEL.

Professional career

She teaches History of Economic Analysis and Advanced Macroeconomics at Sapienza University of Rome. She has directed or participated in various national and European research projects in the areas of economic policy, labor and social policies, welfare and gender economics and she has attended many national and international conferences as invited speaker.

Scientific results

Current research topics: the economics of the European Monetary Union, industrial and innovation policy; industrial relations and income distribution; gender economics.

In the field of economic policy, she has addressed problems concerning the competitiveness of the Italian economy and he Italian position in the EMU. Her recent contributions relate to the issue of the Monetary Union and the difficult relations between core and periphery countries of the euro area. Related to these issues is the problem of industrial policy and the analysis of the processes of innovation and development.

As regards labor policies and industrial relations, the analysis highlights the costs deriving from relying solely on reforms aimed at increasing the flexibility of the labor market to boost employment and growth. The interaction between labor reforms, austerity policies and structural reforms in the areas of taxation, pensions and welfare in exacerbating precariousness, inequality and poverty has been addressed in several essays. It is concluded that resumption of social dialogue and abandonment of austerity policies in favor of an effective industrial policy can provide a better recipe for overcoming the crisis and addressing the challenges of technological innovation and global competition.

The results of these analyses have been reported in several publications.

Professional career

Renata Lenti (conjugated Targetti), born in Milan on August 20, 1941, graduated with honors in Economics and Commerce from the Bocconi University in 1965. She obtained the title of Master of Arts in Economics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1967. Extraordinary and then Professor of Political Economics at the Faculty of Political Sciences of the University of Pavia from 1987 to 2008. In the Faculty Renata Lenti Targetti has taught as a professor in numerous courses in Economics. During the 1990s, the organization of the "Erasmus system" was actively employed on behalf of the Faculty. He also directed - from 2005 to 2008 - the Study Center for Extra-European People Cesare Bonacossa of the University of Pavia. In parallel with the teaching and research activities carried out at the Faculty of Political Science of Pavia, Renata Lenti Targetti held courses at the Bocconi University in Milan until October 2012. She also regularly collaborated with teaching activities at the International Master in "Cooperation and Development" (European School of Advanced Studies) of Pavia and the Master in "International Affairs" organized by the ISPI of Milan. She has also been a member of the teaching staff of the Doctoral School in Economic Policy of the Università Cattolica del S.Cuore, based in Piacenza, entitled "Quantitative methods for economic policy". From December 8th 2009 she is Corresponding Member of the Lombard Institute-Academy of Sciences and Letters. Since September 2013 she is professor emeritus of theUniversity of Pavia.

Scientific results

The research activity of Renata Targetti Lenti has resulted in the publication of numerous essays (64) and three monographs on the themes of development and underdevelopment, on the market structure of natural resources and raw materials, on the functional and personal distribution of income, on poverty, on theories of distributive justice, on the construction and use of Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) and Computable General Equilibrium Models (CGE) based on SAMs.

Scientific activity has followed mainly four directions:

1) Renata Lenti has prepared and coordinated numerous research projects aimed at deepening the knowledge of different aspects of inequality and poverty by abandoning the usual aggregated

setting that hides within it controversial points in favor of a disaggregated vision in order to better explore the relationship between inequality and growth and to assess the impact of public policies on income distribution. Particular attention has been dedicated to analyzing the factors at the root of inequality and poverty, and policies aimed at fighting them. These issues were anlysed both from a theoretical and applied point of view with particular reference to the links between income distribution and the features of the economic system. The work of an applied nature has had as its object the Italian reality.

2) A second line of research has been the analysis of the problems related to the construction and use of Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) as simulation models of alternative public policies. Numerous recent works have also been dedicated to the search for an innovative analysis scheme that explains the links between functional and personal income distribution. Many theoretical and applied essays can be included in this line of research.

3) A third line of research has been to analyze some of the main problems of development with particular reference to the relations between democracy and development and to the structural characteristics of some countries such as China or India.

4) A fourth line of research has been to analyze the thinking of some political philosophers on economic analysis. The works were dedicated in particular to retracing the thoughts of J. Rawls, Amartya K. Sen with reference to the construction of a theory of justice. The contribution of Van Parijs has been analyzed with reference to his proposal for a citizenship income.
