A new economy?

A recently published study provides an accurate snapshot of the social economy, as well as outlining an unusual production culture

 

Social economy, that is, an economy more mindful of the needs of communities. A kind of economy that, for a long time, was viewed with suspicion, yet a significant and growing one, which needs to be properly understood so as to properly apply its values, as, here too, understanding reality is fundamental to avoid mistake and move forwards. This is why reading “L’economia sociale in Italia: dimensioni ed evoluzione” (“The social economy in Italy: dimensions and evolution”) is useful,
a recently published paper providing a summary of the main outcomes of the Euricse-ISTAT report on social economy published in 2021 and curated by Carlo Borzaga, Manlio Calzaroni, Eddi Fontanari and Massimo Lori, with the collaboration of Mauro Caramaschi, Carla Troccoli, Chiara Carini and Anna Berton: a research team that comprises members from the University of Trento, ISTAT and Euricse.

This research study offers an updated insight on the ongoing evolution of social economy in Italy, starting with the contextualisation of its definitions and fields of action. After expounding the statistical sources from which the data employed derives, the researchers first explore in depth the structure of social economy and its short-term evolution, then look at its meaning in terms of employment, before analysing the different sectors in which, nowadays, social economy takes different shapes. This is followed by the historical evolution of the whole system, as well as a number of further investigations related to welfare.

The research team, in its conclusion, explains that, “The most important aspect that data provides is the pervasiveness of social economy organisations in virtually all sectors of the Italian economic system and their significant contribution along the agro-food supply chain, in more labour-intensive activities and in general interest services.” Thus, the social economy is not just outlined as a particular kind of economy, but also as a new and significant expression of a corporate culture that has changed, is evolving, developing and continuously acquiring new meaning.
