Part of the Central Issues in Contemporary Economic Theory and Policy book series (CICETP)


Primary scope of research about the Italian labour market is to analyse whether it works as a traditional inputs market. First of all it is difficult to define the Italian labour market as a perfect competition market: in fact this market does not appear as a perfect competition one and, on the other hand, many law provisions, protecting the employees and favouring the unemployed, do not allow a spontaneous supply-demand equilibrium.
