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.

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.
