Course description

The course aims to analyze both the Italian and international economy in a long-term perspective. The analysis refers to the main economic and financial variables, institutional changes and economic, financial and fiscal policies implemented across various historical phases. Thanks to the knowledge of the economic and financial policies of the past, the course aims to provide students with the theoretical tools necessary for a better understanding of present-day economies and for the identification of possible future scenarios. Particular attention is given to the economies of the Mediterranean area, the economic divide between countries of the Mediterranean region, and the role played by energy sources in ensuring the growth and stability of the region itself.
