REVISITING ITALY WITH FRANCO MODIGLIANI

Renato Camurri presents the anthology L’Italia Vista dall’America (Boringhieri, 2010)

Nobel Laureate Franco Modigliani fled Italy with his family in 1939. In the US he became a world renowned economist and taught at MIT during most of his life.

Responsible for designing a large scale model of the U.S. economy, the MPS, sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank, Modigliani participated actively in the debate over economic policies both in Italy and the U.S., concentrating on the effects of public deficits. This collection of articles examines the post W.W.II Italian economic history through a frank critical assessment of political and cultural factors.
