Spagna Italia: 2-0? Calcio ed economia

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Spain Italy: 2-0? Football and economics

Marco Fortis

Research output: Working paper


[Autom. eng. transl.] Has Spain, in addition to football, definitively surpassed Italy also in the economy? In fact, the Spanish economy has grown a lot in recent years. Spain was very skilled in intercepting and making good use of European funding (unlike Italy); moreover, it has become increasingly strong in tourism (while we have made noticeable steps backwards) and has been able to exploit its good financial situation to effectively support the development of its economy, especially through investments in infrastructure and construction. Faced with these undoubted successes, Italy seems to be stuck in the confrontation, with the continued weak growth of its GDP, the high public debt and the low efficiency of its public administration. Yet a wide-ranging comparison between the Italian and Spanish economies also shows many sides in which our country still gives several points to the Iberian nation.
