Institutions, economies, technologies: two Italian founders (1821-1921)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Carlo Cattaneo and Giuseppe Colombo were prominent contributors to Italy’s economic growth and industrialization, set within an institutional context oriented toward the nation’s conscious involvement in Europe. They were outstanding “architects“ of Italy’s economic development. Their views were rationally systematic, rooted in the value given to innovation and action oriented. Yet, they were neither theorists nor entrepreneurs.
