The course provides the intruments to evaluate the opportunity and the merit of public policies based on economic theories. Once Italian economic system is analysed in comparison with the European economic system as well as a wider international context, the course invokes Keynesian macroeconomic analysis features to define the meaning and the limits of economic policies that are inspired by this line of interpretation. The course also describes the main theories on international differences in growth rates with the aim to understand the role of technological progress in economic development and the limits to economic growth required by the need to keep budgets balanced.
