Tubaldi, Roberto ; Frésard, Laurent (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021ECO004.

Using a novel approach based on hurricanes, the first chapter, Mutual Funds’ Fire Sales and the Real Economy: Evidence from Hurricanes, contributes to the recent debate on...

Motz, Alessandra ; Maggi, Rico (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021ECO003.

In the context of the international climate change mitigation efforts, several countries have been scaling up their efforts to decarbonize their economies and energy systems. The restructuring of the electricity systems has brought about new challenges, among which the acceptance of the new infrastructures and technologies, and the need of ensuring an optimal level of security of supply.

Money, Income, and Profit : Lessons from the Monetary Theory of Production

Carrera, Andrea ; Rossi, Sergio

In: Iberian Journal of the History of Economic Thought, 2015, vol. 2, no. 1, p. 48-60

In this paper we analyze Augusto Graziani’s numerous contributions to the monetary theory of production, which he developed from a theoretical but also a policy-oriented perspective. We focus on the rejection of the neoclassical dichotomy, the causal relation between production and money creation, and the definition of macroeconomic saving. These three dimensions of Graziani’s work can be...

The Economics of Deflation in the Euro Area : A Critique of Fiscal Austerity

Mastromatteo, Giuseppe ; Rossi, Sergio

In: Review of Keynesian Economics, 2015, vol. 3, no. 3, p. 336-350

This paper points out that the roots of the euro-area crisis are to be found in the loss of monetary sovereignty and an unsustainable credit-led economic growth in a variety of ‘peripheral’ countries. It addresses the negative consequences of fiscal austerity in the euro-area crisis framework, in particular regarding the distribution of income and the economic and financial relations...

The Euro Must Be Abandoned to Achieve European Monetary Integration

Rossi, Sergio

In: International Journal of Political Economy, 2016, vol. 45, no. 1, p. 72-84

This article explains why the euro has to be abandoned in order to integrate the euro- area member countries monetarily. It first recalls the negative consequences of the adoption of a single European currency by a number of countries whose economies are still too different on structural grounds to support the financial constraints elicited by the fiscal and monetary policy straightjacket. It...

El estado de la macroeconomía = The State of Macroeconomics

Rochon, Louis-Philippe ; Rossi, Sergio

In: Ola Financiera, 2018, vol. 11, no. 31, p. 100-127

Este ensayo examina de cerca esta llamada "guerra civil", y si conlleva a alguna consecuencia para el desarrollo futuro de la macroeconomía, o si es solo una tormenta de microfundamentos en una tetera. Al hacerlo, se argumenta que si bien la crítica disidente es ciertamente bienvenida desde una perspectiva poskeynesiana, no equivale al rechazo del pensamiento o modelos actuales, sino a...

The Relationship Between Inflation and Unemployment : a Critique of Friedman and Phelps

Rochon, Louis-Philippe ; Rossi, Sergio

In: Review of Keynesian Economics, 2018, vol. 6, no. 4, p. 533-544

The ‘natural rate of unemployment’ was not an important part of Friedman’s presidential address, although it is what the paper is remembered for. On the 50th anniversary of the paper, we argue that there is no ‘natural rate of unemployment’, and that the relation between inflation and unemployment is not the one assumed by Friedman or neoclassical theory. In Section 2 we present the...

Rethinking the Euro as a Common Currency for Europe : Keynes’s Plan Revisited

Rossi, Sergio

In: Revista de Economía Crítica, 2019, vol. 27, p. 86-99

This paper sets off from the monetary–structural origins of the euro-area crisis, which is not a sovereign debt crisis, but a crisis due to a lack of payment finality at international level. The first section explains that international payments across the euro area are not, to date, final for the countries concerned, as the European Central Bank does not operate as settlement institution...
