  • The Great War: Bachi’s statistic and economic-comparative approach = La
           Gran Guerra: enfoque estadístico y económico-comparativo de Bachi

    • Authors: Marco Santillo
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: Multifaceted intellectual and expert in economics and statistics, Riccardo Bachi was able to understand, in real-time, the long-term implications arising in Italy as a result of involvement in the war. A essential objective of this paper meant to explore some methodological aspects of Bachi’s analysis, i.e. his economic indexes, barometers, thermometers and generally his predictive economic statistics. The comparative statistical method together with the historical-economic approach, make the study of this economist very interesting for the scientific community interested in this historical period, even considering that he developed his research when the statistical sources were not yet available. The last but not the least, the post-war activities of Bachi in commenting on the economic and political consequences of the conflict, would have anticipated, surprisingly, the thought of J.M. Keynes.Multifacético intelectual y experto en economía y estadística, Riccardo Bachi fue capaz de comprender, en tiempo real, las implicaciones a largo plazo que surgen en Italia como resultado de su participación en la guerra. Un objetivo esencial de este trabajo era explorar algunos aspectos metodológicos del análisis de Bachi, es decir, sus índices económicos, barómetros, termómetros y, en general, sus estadísticas económicas predictivas. El método estadístico comparativo, junto con el enfoque histórico-económico, hacen que el estudio de este economista sea muy interesante para la comunidad científica interesada en este período histórico, aun considerando que desarrolló su investigación cuando las fuentes estadísticas aún no estaban disponibles. Por último, pero no menos importante, podemos destacar la actividad de Bachi posterior a la guerra, comentando las consecuencias económicas y políticas del conflicto, con lo que, sorprendentemente, se habría anticipado al pensamiento de J.M. Keynes.

      Abstract: L’emigrazione italiana verso il continente americano ha rappresentato un fenomeno dell’età contemporanea di ingenti dimensioni: la grandissima comunità italiana negli Stati Uniti è stata oggetto di numerosi approfondimenti storiografici, letterari, cinematografici, oltre a costituire ormai parte integrante della storia, dell’economia e, in genere, della società americana.Tuttavia, una parte degli emigranti scelse differenti mete: l’America Latina, il Canada. Questo articolo si sofferma sulla nascita e l’integrazione nell’economia canadese della prima comunità italiana −a inizio ‘900− che avrebbe costituito la base per flussi migratori successivi più cospicui, nel secondo dopoguerra.La ricerca, di taglio storico-economico, mette in luce soprattutto l’aspetto finanziario della vicenda, e presenta un’analisi dettagliata –basata sulla documentazione del Servizio Emigrati dell’Archivio Storico del Banco di Napoli– del servizio di raccolta e spedizione in patria delle rimesse degli emigrati da parte delle banche canadesi incaricate: un fenomeno che andò incrementandosi con la crescita della comunità italo-canadese.The Italian emigration to America was a phenomenon of huge dimensions of the contemporary age: the large Italian community in the US has been the subject of numerous insights historiographical, literary, film, besides being now an integral part of the history, of the economy and, in general, of the American society.However, part of the emigrants chose different destinations: Latin America, Canada. This article focuses on the birth and the integration in the Canadian economy of the first Italian community −at the beginning of '900− which would have formed the basis for increased levels of migratory flows, after World War II.The research, historical-economic cutting, highlights especially the financial aspect of the story, and presents a detailed analysis −based on the documentation of the Migrant Service of the Historical Archive of the Banco di Napoli− about the collection and delivery at home of remittances from the Canadian banks responsible: a phenomenon that incremented with the growth of the Italian-Canadian community.

  • Features and problems in the construction of the postunitary Italian
           banking system = Características y problemas en la construcción del
           sistema bancario postunitario italiano

    • Authors: Stefano Palermo
      Pages: 55 - 74
      Abstract: The study of the evolution of Italian economy experienced, in recent years, new interpretive hypotheses, themselves based on the use of more updated series of historical data. The latter have brought scholars to reconsider, especially taking long-term viewpoints into account, the path Italy followed in joining the global economic system. Therefore, both Italian and international historiography have striven to highlight the most favorable elements, as well as the limits and the contradictions accompanying the nevertheless robust growth Italy experienced during the last 150 years. All this began for Italy as it joined, during the later 1800s, the productive mechanisms of the Second Industrial Revolution, fully maturing during the Golden Age. To fully understand such a path it is necessary to integrate, following a comparative, systemic and interdisciplinary approach, the behavioral analysis of some specific industrial sectors with the so-called system prerequisites to development including, and in an important position at that, the construction of the financial market and the shaping of the banking system. Within such a context, studying the period between the Unification of Italy and the “end of the century crisis” appears particularly important, as it is during this phase that some of the lines through which the model Italy used to join the process of the Second Industrial Revolution were shaped. Such a situation will challenge the future reforms, themselves a prelude to the takeoff Italy experienced during the Giolitti era.This contribution intends to highlight some features of the buildup of the Italian banking system within the framework of Italian nation building, between 1861 and 1893. In order to do that, besides offering an analysis of the political, economic and financial situation of the time, it examines the path, the uses and the crossings of capital which, starting with the financial movements recorded between the end of the 1860s and the beginning of the 1870s between the Centre-North of Italy, Germany and Austria and then pouring into the activities of the Banca Tiberina, based in Rome and one of the main protagonists of the growing phenomenon joining banks and companies during that time. Therefore, this work of mine does not only focus on the descending parable the Banca Tiberina experienced (something well known in economic historiography, especially when examining the end of the century crisis) but rather more on the whole three previous decades, from the beginning to the expansion phase.Therefore, a composite framework emerges, striving to keep the features of the political, social and economic features of Italy with those events being only apparently local and between these and the evolution of the banking system after the Italian Unification.El estudio de la evolución de la economía italiana experimentó, en los últimos años, nuevas hipótesis interpretativas basadas en el uso de series de datos históricos más actualizadas. Estos han llevado a los investigadores a reconsiderar, especialmente teniendo en cuenta un punto de vista a largo plazo, el camino seguido en Italia al unirse al sistema económico mundial. Por eso, la historiografía italiana e internacional se ha esforzado en resaltar los elementos más favorables, así como los límites y las contradicciones que acompañan al robusto crecimiento que Italia experimentó durante los últimos 150 años. Todo esto comenzó para Italia, bien avanzado 1800, al asumir los mecanismos productivos de la segunda revolución industrial, ya evolucionados durante la Golden Age. Para entender completamente este camino es necesario integrar, siguiendo un enfoque comparativo, sistémico e interdisciplinario, el análisis del comportamiento de algunos sectores industriales específicos con los llamados prerrequisitos del sistema para el desarrollo incluyendo, y en una posición importante, la construcción del mercado financiero y la conformación del sistema bancario. Y dentro de tal contexto, estudiando el período entre la unificación de Italia y el "fin de la crisis del siglo", da la impresión particularmente importante, ya que es durante esta fase, que algunas de las líneas a través de las cuales el modelo de Italia utilizó para unirse al proceso de la Segunda Revolución Industrial ya estaban diseñadas. Tal situación pondrá a prueba las futuras reformas, como un preludio del despegue de Italia durante la era Giolittiana.Esta contribución tiene la intención de poner de relieve algunas de las características de la conformación del sistema bancario italiano en el marco de la construcción de la nación italiana, entre 1861 y 1893. Con el fin de hacer esto, además de ofrecer un análisis de la situación política, económica y financiera de ese momento, se examina la trayectoria, los usos y los movimientos de capitales, partiendo de los movimientos financieros registrados entre el final de la década de 1860 y principios de la década de 1870, entre el centro-norte de Italia, Alemania y Austria, e incluyendo las actividades de la banca Tiberina, con sede en Roma como uno de los protagonistas principales del creciente fenómeno de unión bancaria y empresarial durante ese periodo. Por lo tanto, este trabajo no sólo se centra en la moraleja resultante de la experiencia de Banca Tiberina (algo bien conocido en la historiografía económica, sobre todo cuando al examinar el final de la crisis del siglo), sino más bien en las tres décadas anteriores completas, desde el principio hasta la fase de expansión.Por ello, surge un nuevo marco, esforzándose en destacar los principales rasgos de las características políticas, sociales y económicas de Italia, con...

  • Per un bilancio dell'unione monetaria latina = An assessment of the
           Latin monetary union

    • Authors: Andrea Filocamo
      Pages: 75 - 87
      Abstract: L’Autore analizza gli effetti conseguenti alla conclusione dell’Unione Monetaria Latina nell’Ottocento tra Belgio, Francia, Italia, Grecia e Svizzera, considerando obiettivi ufficiali e aspettative dei singoli Stati membri. L’uniformità monetaria raggiunta non si tradusse in una maggiore integrazione commerciale, né gli Stati membri riuscirono a ottenere i vantaggi che si attendevano, dovendo soprattutto preoccuparsi di limitare i danni legati al corso forzoso e al crollo del prezzo dell’argento. Solo l’Italia sembra essere riuscita, in parte, a ottenere qualche vantaggio dall’Unione. Gli studiosi hanno spesso evidenziato i problemi legati alla previsione di regole poco stringenti nel funzionamento dell’Unione. Qui si argomenta che una costruzione più rigida e centralizzata non sarebbe stata sufficiente ad evitarli.The Author analyzes the effects of the realization of 19th-century Latin Monetary Union covering Belgium, France, Italy, Greece, and Switzerland, by evaluating the official aims and expectations of each involved member state. The monetary uniformity actually did not result in a better commercial integration and the member States failed to obtain the expected advantages. Furthermore, they had to limit the damage brought about by the fiat currency and the fall of silver prices. Seemingly, only Italy partly succeeded in getting some advantage from the monetary Union. Scholars have often stigmatized the problems stemming from the weak rules that underlay the Union’s system. Nevertheless, the Author assumes that even a more rigid and centralized rationale would not have averted those problems.

  • La distancia psíquica en el ámbito de la selección de mercados
           internacionales: propuesta de definición y presencia en las PYMEs
           españolas exportadoras de bienes de consumo = The psychic distance in the
           field of the international market selection: definition and presence in
           Spanish SMEs exporters of consumer products

    • Authors: Pedro María Martínez Villar
      Pages: 89 - 111
      Abstract: Dos cuestiones relevantes en el ámbito de la selección de mercados de exportación (SME en lo sucesivo) confluyen en este artículo: profundizar sobre la decisión de SME, identificando la presencia de distancia psíquica como factor limitativo de la decisión; y ante la ausencia de una definición generalmente aceptada de la distancia psíquica, ofrecer un constructo ecléctico debidamente contrastado.La encuesta de cuestionario es el recurso empleado para obtener la información necesaria para lograr los objetivos establecidos, y la estadística descriptiva es la técnica empleada para validar el constructo propuesto y conocer las limitaciones del mismo.La decisión de SME es compleja, por la intervención de la propia estrategia de negocio y la percepción de la distancia psíquica que los mercados potenciales transmiten a los decisores. En el caso de la muestra analizada, pymes españolas exportadoras de bienes de consumo, la distancia psíquica actúa en las primeras etapas de exportación, circunscribiendo la SME a países psíquicamente próximos. Se ha identificado un patrón psíquico-gradualista que se estabiliza cuando la experiencia modera la percepción de distancia. A partir de ese momento, las empresas se encuentran con el know-how preciso para abordar mercados potenciales más complejos.Two relevant issues in the area of export market selection (EMS hereafter) converge in this article: to delve into how the decision is constructed, identifying the presence of psychic distance as a limiting factor, and in the absence of a generally accepted definition of psychic distance, offer an eclectic construct duly contrasted.The questionnaire survey is the resource used to obtain the necessary information to achieve the established objectives, and descriptive statistics is the technique used to validate the proposed construct and to know the limitations. The research focuses on small and medium-sized Spanish exporters of consumer goods because of the relevance they have in the Spanish economy as a whole. Exporters of services or large companies are not included in this study, in one case because of the product and in the other, their resource availability needed a differentiated approach.The decision of SME is complex, by the intervention of the own business strategy and the perception of the psychic distance that the potential markets transmit to the decision makers. In the case of the analyzed sample, the psychic distance acts in the first stages of export circumscribing the EMS to psychically close countries. A psychic-gradualist pattern has been identified that stabilizes when experience moderates the perception of psychic distance. From then on, companies have the precise know-how to address more complex potential markets

  • Configuración actual del comercio exterior en Galicia = Current foreign
           trade framework in Galicia

    • Authors: José Luis Placer Galán
      Pages: 115 - 170
      Abstract: La reciente crisis económica y la contracción de la demanda interna han impulsado un creciente interés por los mercados exteriores. Esta investigación pretende caracterizar la configuración actual del comercio exterior de la Comunidad Autónoma de Galicia, tanto en lo relativo a los productos como a los mercados geográficos de origen y destino. Para ello se emplean una serie de indicadores, ampliamente contrastados en la investigación económica, que permiten identificar: el grado de apertura de la economía provincial leonesa; la propensión exportadora y la dependencia importadora; el grado de concentración, por producto y mercados, de sus flujos comerciales exteriores; la especialización exportadora y la ventaja comparativa sectorial; la composición inter o intra-industrial del comercio exterior; y la distribución geográfica de los flujos comerciales de la economía gallega con los mercados exteriores.The recent economic crisis and internal demand contraction have encouraged the emerging interest in international markets. This study aims at featuring the current foreign trade framework of the Galicia, in regards to both import and export products and geographical markets. For that purpose, several indexes, widely verified in this study, have been utilized to identify the trade openness level of Leon economy, its export propensity, import dependence as well as the concentration level for products and internal trade flows. Leon export specialization, its comparative advantage by sector, the inter-intra-industry trade composition and geographical distribution of trade with international markets have been likewise included in this study.

  • La creación de los Vales Reales = The creation of the Vales Reales

    • Authors: Pedro Damián Cano Borrego
      Pages: 17 - 31
      Abstract: A finales del siglo XVIII la Monarquía adolecía de graves problemas económicos, derivados del estado permanente de guerra en el que se hallaba sumido el Reino, que impedía la arribada de remesas de metales preciosos y suponía unos ingentes gastos, lo que llevó a que a finales del reinado de Carlos III se creasen los Vales Reales, a modo de deuda pública. Por sus características, fueron desde el principio títulos de renta, amortizables en plazos más o menos grandes, dependiendo de las cláusulas que regían sus emisiones en un principio y más tarde de la situación del Tesoro Público.In the late eighteenth century the Spanish monarchy had serious economic problems arising from the permanent state of war in which they had sunk the Kingdom, which prevented the arrival of remittances of precious metals and assumed a heavy expenses, which led to the end the reign of Carlos III the creation of the Vales Reales, a kind of public debt. By their nature, they were from the beginning income securities, redeemable in larger or smaller periods, depending on the terms governing their emissions at first and later on the status of Treasury

      Abstract: Este artículo tiene como objetivo investigar una particular dimensión cultural de una comunidad social: la religiosa. Su premisa básica es la idea que hay muchas correlaciones e interdependencias entre los diferentes aspectos de la cultura de un pueblo, por lo que los cambios en uno de ellos pueden causar cambios en todos los demás. Entonces, no se puede pensar la cultura religiosa de una comunidad como distante desde la económica y científica, porque cada uno de ellas tiene el ser humano como elemento central y original. Por otra parte, la dimensión religiosa es tan penetrante en el alma humana, que se puede considerar como algo que caracteriza una comunidad. En esta perspectiva, es muy importante la misión sacerdotal que requiere una formación específica que se puede adquirir a través de cursos de estudio impartidos en los “seminarios”. Estas entidades eclesiásticas constituyen nuestro objeto de estudio, con especial referencia a lo que, hasta hoy, ha operado en la Diócesis de Siena. La comunidad social de Siena es extraordinariamente atractiva por su historia política y administrativa, por su patrimonio artístico y cultural y, sobre todo, por el sentimiento religioso de su población, lo que ha generado muchos grandes santos como Catalina Benincasa y Bernardino. El estudio, con un enfoque económico-empresarial, se refiere al sistema de contabilidad y a la estructura de gobierno de la institución analizada. Considerado su historia turbulenta y llena de eventos, limitamos la investigación a un período significativamente interesante: la regencia diocesana del Arzobispo Giuseppe Mancini (1824-1855), cuando se estaban absorbiendo las supresiones leopoldinas y napoleónicas y el Seminario estaba en la Iglesia de San Jorge.Lo studio intende indagare su di una particolare dimensione culturale delle comunità sociali: quella religiosa. La sua premessa di base è la consapevolezza delle numerose correlazioni e interdipendenze esistenti tra i diversi aspetti della cultura di un popolo, tanto che i cambiamenti in uno di essi possono provocare modificazioni in tutti gli altri. Così non è possibile pensare alla cultura religiosa di una comunità come staccata e ininfluente rispetto a quella economica e scientifica, in quanto ognuna di esse ha l’essere umano come polo centrale e originario. Inoltre, la dimensione religiosa è così penetrante nell’animo umano, da poter essere considerata come il tratto caratterizzante di una collettività. In quest’ottica risulta fondamentale l’esercizio della missione presbiterale che presuppone una formazione acquisibile con la frequenza di percorsi di studio tenuti in particolari istituzioni: i “seminari”. Questi enti ecclesiastici costituiscono il nostro oggetto di studio, con particolare riferimento a quello che, fino ai nostri giorni, ha operato nella diocesi senese. La comunità sociale di Siena risulta straordinariamente attraente per via della sua storia politico-amministrativa, del suo patrimonio artistico-culturale e, soprattutto, del sentimento religioso della sua popolazione, che ha generato numerosi grandi santi, come Caterina Benincasa e Bernardino. Lo studio, inquadrato in un’ottica economico-aziendale, fa riferimento al sistema contabile ed alla correlata struttura di governo dell’ente analizzato. Considerata la sua storia ricca di eventi, abbiamo circoscritto l’indagine ad un periodo significativamente interessante: la reggenza diocesana dell’arcivescovo Giuseppe Mancini (1824-1855), allorquando si stavano assorbendo le soppressioni leopoldine e quelle napoleoniche. Nel periodo considerato, la sede del Seminario era la Chiesa di S. Giorgio.This study aims to investigate on a particular cultural dimension of a social community, the religious one. Its basic premise is the existence of correlations and interdependencies among numerous aspects of people’s culture. Indeed, changes in one of them can modify other environment cultural aspects. What we believe is that we cannot conceive the religious community as detached from the economic and scientific one and vice versa, because they always have the human being as the central and primary pole. Moreover, the religious dimension is so pervasive in the human soul that can be considered as a collective characterizing trait. Therefore, the exercise of the priestly mission is crucial, and it implies a specific training acquirable through some defined study courses held in particular institutions: The “Seminaries”. Our study focuses on these ecclesiastic entities, specifically to the one operating in the diocese of Siena until now. Siena social community is extremely attractive because of its political-administrative history, its artistic and cultural heritage, and, above all, its religious feeling that generated many saints as Caterina Benincasa and Bernardino. Our work adopts a business administration perspective, referring to the accounting system and the related governing structure of the Seminary. Considering its troubled and eventful history, we focus on a particularly interesting period: the diocese regency by the archbishop Giuseppe Mancini (1831-1855), when the effects of Duke Leopoldo and Napoleon’s suppressions were “absorbed”. In these years, S. Giorgio church was the Seminary location.

  • La valoración económica de los ecoservicios en los agroecosistemas en
           España: Marco conceptual y metodológico = The economic valuation of
           ecosystem services in the agroecosystems in Spain: Conceptual framework
           and methodology

    • Authors: Juan Francisco Velasco Muñoz, José Ángel Aznar Sánchez
      Pages: 75 - 93
      Abstract: El estudio de la valoración de los servicios de los ecosistemas es un área de investigación reciente en España pero que ha cobrado un fuerte impulso durante las últimas décadas. El carácter multidimensional de estos servicios, la diversidad de beneficiarios y partes interesadas, y los diferentes enfoques valorativos existentes hacen que su valoración resulte compleja. En este trabajo se presenta el marco conceptual para la valoración de los servicios provistos por los ecosistemas y una descripción de las metodologías más utilizadas, aplicado a los agroecosistemas españoles. Para ello se ha realizado una búsqueda en la base de datos del Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), dando como resultado una muestra de 101 trabajos. La metodología utilizada para su análisis ha sido de tipo cualitativo. Los resultados obtenidos muestran como el grueso de los trabajos de valoración de ecoservicios provistos por agroecosistemas en España se ha publicado durante los últimos cinco años y que entre las metodologías económicas más utilizadas destacan el análisis coste-beneficio, la valoración contingente y los experimentos de elección.The study of the valuation of ecosystem services is a recent area of research in Spain but has gained strong impulse during the last decades. The multidimensional nature of these services, in addition to the diversity of related beneficiaries and actors, and the different approaches make their evaluation is complex. This paper presents the conceptual framework for the assessment of services provided by ecosystems and a description of the methodologies most used, applied to Spanish agroecosystems. To this end, it has conducted a search in the database of the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), resulting in a sample of 101 papers. The methodology used for the analysis was qualitative. The results show how the majority of the proyect on valuation of ecosystem services provided by agroecosystems in Spain has been published for the past five years and between the most used economic methodologies include the cost-benefit analysis, contingent valuation and choice experiments.

      Pages: 121 - 140
      Abstract: Este artículo lleva a cabo un estudio profundo de la evolución de varios indicadores comerciales vinculados a la actividad propia de un concesionario de automóviles, así como las cifras de ventas de las siete principales marcas generalistas del sector (Renault, Citroën, Peugeot, Seat, Ford, Opel y Volkswagen) en un mercado o territorio económicamente deprimido durante el periodo comprendido entre los años 2005 y 2008 en los ejercicios previos a la crisis económica y financiera, con el fin de poner de manifiesto la existencia de un deterioro de las cifras de estas variables anterior a la misma. En consecuencia, y como conclusión, la observación y el análisis de estos datos de un modo sistemático y reflexivo deberían ayudar en gran medida a poder adelantar o pronosticar la llegada de una crisis económica que afectará a más sectores económicos y a territorios geográficos más favorecidos.In the present research we study the evolution of several commercial indicators linked to the activity of a vehicle dealer and the sales figures of the seven major generalist brands in the industry (Renault, Citroen, Peugeot, Seat, Ford, Opel and Volkswagen) in an economically depressed area during the period between 2005 and 2008, the previous exercises to the economic and financial crisis, in order to highlight the existence of a decline in these variables before crisis. Consequently, the observation and analysis of these data from a systematic and thoughtful point of view could help to a large extent to predict the coming of an economic crisis that will affect to other economic sectors and more favoured geographical areas.
