Italian Institutional Reforms: A Public Choice Perspective
Title: Italian Institutional Reforms: A Public Choice Perspective
Citation: Norwell (MA), Springer, 2008
Using a public choice perspective, this book explains the evolution and political and economic impact of recent changes to the Italian institutional framework. Because these changes are so numerous and broad, their implementation serves as a case study for other Western governments. Particular attention is paid to the introduction of the EURO, the reform of voting from proportional to majoritarian rule, the impact of corporatism, constraints imposed by the Maastricht Treaty, and the switch from a highly centralized government to a federal organization.
