Making democracy work : civic traditions in modern Italy by Robert D Putnam( Book )

36 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do some democratic governments succeed and others fail? In a world full of hope for democratization but wary of government failure, this book offers empirical evidence for the importance of civic community in developing successful institutions. As part of a unique experiment begun in 1970 when Italy created new governments for each of its regions - regions that vary greatly from the standpoint of wealth, social structure, and political leanings - Robert Putnam and his collaborators spent two decades evaluating the performance of these governments in such fields as agriculture, housing, and health services. Their findings were surprising: regions that enjoy effective government in the 1990s have inherited a legacy of civic engagement that can be traced back to the early Middle Ages. Just as Tocqueville traveled to America to try to understand democracy, Putnam and his colleagues draw broad lessons for democratic theory from their twenty-year journey through Italy. Their conclusions challenge the simple-minded thesis of the primacy of economics and the easy optimism of social engineers. Based on dozens of case studies and thousands of interviews with politicians, community leaders, and ordinary citizens, this book illuminates patterns of associationism, trust, and cooperation that facilitate good governance and economic prosperity. It also contributes to the discussion of democracy in the newly freed lands of Eurasia and the developing world and to the gathering debate about how to revitalize democracy in America

Innovation, democracy and efficiency : exploring the innovation puzzle within the European Union's regional development policies by Francesco Grillo( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Endogenous growth theory has significantly impacted most of the developing and developed countries, shifting priorities of industrial policies towards innovation. In line with this trend, the European Union significantly increased its budgetary allocation for R&D. However, statistical data show a weak correlation between R&D expenditure and the acceleration of economic growth. Regional innovation policies display divergent returns according to different institutional conditions and policy choices. Grillo and Nanetti attempt to understand the reasons that lie behind differences in performance. Their results show that better performing innovation strategies require the following factors: clear choices of locally congruent smart specialization; strong capacity of public investment to stimulate additional private investment; clear distribution of responsibilities for decision-making and independence of policy implementation from political interference; and problem solving partnerships amongst innovators, universities, and governments that pre-exist the programmes. These factors point to a relationship between democracy (defined as openness of policy-making) and innovation (as technology-enabled growth) which is explored throughout this book.--
Growth and territorial policies : the Italian model of social capitalism by Raffaella Nanetti( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regional development in a modern European economy : the case of Tuscany( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since Tuscany was targeted as an Objective Two area to reverse industrial decline, its development has made it a European Union success story. This volume brings together, for the first time in English, a team of experts to examine the 'Tuscan Model' of development and its link with European integration. All aspects of the economy are examined from the textile industry to tourism. It is shown that Tuscany has benefited from European integration and regional decentralisation, with an expanding export market to other EU countries." "Crucially, the 'principles and practice' approach demonstrates how the model can be applied to other such regions, and the book has applicability beyond the immediate scope of study. Given the absolute necessity of a coherent industrial policy at European level this volume is an invaluable reference for students, scholars and practitioners alike."--Jacket

Democracy and Growth in the Twenty-first Century : The Diverging Cases of China and Italy by Francesco Grillo( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is democracy still the best political regime for countries to adapt to economic and technological pressures and increase their level of prosperity? While the West seems to have stagnated in an environment of political mistrust, increasing inequality and low growth, the rise of the East has shown that it may not be liberal democracy that is best at accommodating the social mutations that technologies have triggered. The cases of China and Italy form the research focus as two extremes in growth performance. China is the star of globalisation in the East, while Italy is the laggard of globalisation in the West and a laboratory of creeping political meltdown now shared by other major Western economies. But is this forever? Introducing the 'innovation paradox' as the main challenge to the West and the notion of 'knowledge democracy' as key to sustainable growth, this book presents a new side to the debate on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (or fifth as the authors argue). It is a vital reading for all those questioning what kind of democracy positively impacts innovation as the force whose speed and direction transforms societies and economies. Francesco Grillo is advisor to Italy's Minister for Education, Universities and Research on national innovation policies and is affiliated with the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa, Italy. He is columnist at Corriere della Sera, holds an MBA from Boston University, USA a PhD from the London School of Economics and Political Science and has been a visiting scholar at Oxford University, UK. He is Managing Director of Vision & Value (consulting firm), and advises the European Commission on innovation and smart specialization. Raffaella Y. Nanetti is Professor Emerita of Urban Planning and Policy in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA, and part of the core team of the Economic and Social Cohesion Laboratory in London, UK. She is an Associate of Italy's National Research Council (CNR) in Rome. Her main research areas are policy and programme evaluation, research design and methodology, and territorial development policies
