  • 2020/12: Political cycles and yardstick competition in the recycling of waste. Evidence from Italian provinces

    Massimiliano Ferraresi, Massimiliano Mazzanti, Matteo Mazzarano, Leonzio Rizzo, Riccardo Secomandi

    Recycling and the recovery of waste are crucial waste management strategies. In light of the new EU circular economy approach, these strategies remain core pillars of a competitive and sustainable waste value chain. Local governments have an important role in controlling and checking the implementation of waste management policies. We...

    L’ascens de nous partits polítics en les democràcies occidentals

    L’Institut d’Economia de Barcelona (IEB) dedica l’IEB Report núm. 2 de l’any 2020, coordinat per l’investigador i professor Matteo Gamalerio, a tractar de les causes de la fragmentació política que ha experimentat Europa en la darrera dècada, amb l’aparició de nous partits i l’auge del populisme.

    2020/02: Betrayed by the elites: how corruption amplifies the political effects of recessions

    Carlos Sanz, Albert Solé-Ollé, Pilar Sorribas-Navarro

    We investigate whether corruption amplifies the political effects of economic crises. Using Spanish municipal-level data and a difference-in-difference strategy, we find that local unemployment shocks experienced during the Great Recession (2008-2015) increased political fragmentation. This effect was four times larger in municipalities exposed to malfeasance than in municipalities without a...

    2020/01: Does the winner take it all? Redistributive policies and political extremism

    Gianmarco Daniele, Amedeo Piolatto, Willem Sas

    We show that regional heterogeneity of underlying fundamentals (e.g. economic history, geography, natural resources, social capital) can lead to extreme voting in federations. When the outcome of federal policies { such as transfer schemes, market regulation, migration targets { depends on these fundamentals, the set of regions that benefits or...

    2019/11: Stop invasion! The electoral tipping point in anti-immigrant voting

    Massimo Bordignon, Matteo Gamalerio, Edoardo Slerca, Gilberto Turati

    Why do anti-immigrant political parties have more success in areas that host fewer immigrants? Using regression discontinuity design, structural breaks search methods and data from a sample of Italian municipalities, we show that the relationship between the vote shares of anti-immigrant parties and the share of immigrants follows a U-shaped...

    2018/16: Long-lasting social capital and its impact on economic development: the legacy of the commons

    Daniel Montolio, Ana Tur-Prats

    This paper analyzes the historical determinants and long-term persistence of social capital, as well as its effect on economic development, by looking at the legacy of the commons in a Spanish region. In medieval times, common goods were granted to townships and were managed collectively by local citizens. This enabled...
