    Titolo tesi: Personal income distribution, taxation and financial features in the Sraffia (hyper)multiplier model
    Docente guida: A. Stirati

    The main goal of this thesis is to develop an amended version of the Sraffian Supermultiplier Model that incorporates financial features and real estate prices in autonomous consumption. Shifts in financial and monetary parameters, as well as the sustainability of autonomous consumption-led growth are discussed, together with the policy conditions that lead to sustainable growth strategies. In this sense, two issues are highlighted. First, the growth of debt-financed consumption ought to move in step rather than detached from income distribution, with debt being stopped from replacing systematically disposable income.  Accordingly, income inequality and income taxes are incorporated into the model, showing that a progressive tax shift would engender temporary higher growth rates (during the traverse) and an overall positive level effect. Moreover, it will contribute to stabilize the multiplier. Second, it is argued that an analysis of growth contributions is of chief importance in terms of policy design and implementation, thus preventing the supremacy of autonomous consumption over other components autonomous demand. The theoretical model is empirically evaluated in selected European countries (France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Spain) and the US.

    Titolo tesi: Three essays on climate change and socioeconomic vulnerability
    Docente guida: V. Costantini, C. Conigliani

    The aim of the thesis is to understand the impact of climate change on socioeconomic vulnerability, and in particular on the aspects related to the outbreak and exacerbation of armed conflicts and to economic inequality. As for the former, since climate change may trigger violent conflicts through different context-specific channels, this relationship is investigated at a high-resolution spatial scale with a focus on the entire African continent. For this purpose, a Zero-inflated negative binomial model for panel data with spatial interactions is employed. This econometric technique also allows to detect the existence of time-persistent and spatial contagion (up to different distance thresholds) effects, as well as to distinguish between climatic factors triggering and aggravating armed conflicts. Results from the econometric analysis indicate that climatic conditions are important factors in shaping cells’ conflict risk and/or propensity, and they act over different ranges in terms of geographical distance. In particular, precipitations appear to be the main climatic factor in determining a cell’s risk of experiencing a conflict. On the other hand, variations in temperatures and drought levels have a strong positive impact on the number of conflicts, once a conflict has broken out. As for the relationship with inequality, the increasing trend of damages resulting from natural disasters suggests that these catastrophic events cannot be deemed as exceptional and independent. Rather, they should be acknowledged as integral part of the tangible effects through which climate change manifests itself. Hence, the disaster-related damages result to have a cumulative effect on the society experiencing disasters as repeated events. The hypothesis to test is that economic inequality, which is even widened by the occurrence of a catastrophic event, by hindering reconstruction and recovery for the poorest segments of the population, can be the mechanism through which damages from natural disasters get higher and higher over time. The econometric technique employed to test the bi-directionality of such relationship is a system of simultaneous equations accounting for dynamics in time series and mutual causality linkages.
