My interview on bogus self-employment

The Sole24ore, which is the most important economic journal in Italy, asked me for a comment on the widespread phenomenon of the bogus self-employment among young professionals. This is quite a long-term problem suffered by Italian labour markets and which I have already discussed in my researches about knowledge work in Italy.

If you want to read the article by Alberto Magnani (in Italian) you can access it here. Enjoy!

Work is a gender issue

I have been invited by the Huffington Post to give a comment on the recent change in family policy by the Italian government. In fact, the new populist government has decided to cut a cash transfer to families that opt for renouncing to the non-compulsory parental leave.

In the post, I raise the economic underpinnings of this choice, as women’s employment also affects the economic growth in general. In fact, if not for equality issue, favouring the participation of women to labour market is a matter of competitivity. My comments stem from the preliminary results of the VINE project.

Are you single? Move to Denmark!

The science popularization portal InGenere has published a contribution of mine entitled “Per essere single bisogna vivere in Danimarca” (to be single, you have to live in Denmark).

Kasearu, based on the primary data collected on women (25-64 years old) living in 11 European Cities during the EU Funded project FLOWS.
