Sample text

But as well as this, regional aid in its present form works against the "trickle-down" effect which, in a free economy, tends to transfer the benefits of innovation at the centre out to the hinterland. As new products reach the stage of standardization and mass production, it makes economic sense to produce them, not in the conurbations where they have been developed by highly skilled and highly paid people, but in smaller towns where a cheaper and lower-quality labour force is available. Such a pattern is evident, for example, in the United States, and is part of the cause of consistently higher employment growth there than in Europe.

It is estimated that in Italy two thirds of domestic inflation is caused by wage increases. 37 II. The feasibility of the convergence policy: internal influences There are a number of problems of credibility and influences affecting the feasibility of the structural readjustment policy that has been launched.
