Italy: Effects of Substituting Political Objectives for Business Goals

  • Enzo Pontarollo
Part of the Trade Policy Research Centre book series (TPRC)


State intervention in the private sector of the economy and the existence of a complex system of public shareholding companies are now established features of the Italian economy. They are the outcome of a process which has lasted half a century and the resulting structures are so diversified that no Italian escapes them in the course of daily life. Whoever uses the telephone or the motorway network, drives an Alfa Romeo or buys a Motta cake comes into contact with the state shareholding system.
