L' efficacia degli incentivi agli investimenti in sicurezza.

Elena Ragazzi, Giuliano Salberini, Stefano Signorini, Marco Accorinti, Chiara Colagiacomo, Francesco Gagliardi, Angelo Castaldo, Secondo Rolfo
Il quaderno fornisce un quadro assolutamente inedito sullo strumento degli Incentivi di Sostegno alle Imprese, i cosiddetti Bandi ISI, che sostengono le imprese che realizzano investimenti che migliorino le condizioni di sicurezza e di salute dei luoghi di lavoro. Idealmente la politica mira a un target di imprese caratterizzate da maggiore rischio, a causa della piccola dimensione o del tipo di lavorazione o ancora del settore produttivo, e fornisce un contributo a fondo perduto per realizzare investimenti che apportino una riduzione del rischio di infortunio o di quello di contrarre malattie professionali. Si tratta della prima volta in cui viene pubblicato un quadro completo del sistema di implementazione di questa politica gestita dall’Inail, quadro dotato di un ampio corredo di informazioni qualitative e quantitative. Questo è stato reso possibile per la piena collaborazione offerta dall’Istituto Nazionale per l’Assicurazione contro gli Infortuni sul Lavoro (Inail) che nel proprio Piano delle attività di ricerca 2016-2018 aveva già intrapreso un percorso di ricerca che aveva come obiettivo la valutazione della sostenibilità e dell’efficacia degli interventi di prevenzione.

Macchingegno: lavoro, scienza, energia tra il XVI e il XIX secolo. Dispensa per gli animatori scientifici dell’Ecomuseo del Freidano.

Grazia Biorci
This handbook is mainly addressed to the scientific animators of the Ecomuseo del Freidano who are in charge to propose to the public the exploration of the multimedia product Macchingegno. The manual has a double function. On the one hand it is a practical tool to become confident with the multimedia application and make it work, on the other hand it is a brief and precise compendium on the history of energy and of the machines that produce it: machines and genius are the core topics of this work and of its contents. The aim of this manual is to give as many explanations as possible to the animators, trying to be exhaustive, but concise, so that they can easily relate to the users of the museum with competence, besides, of course, their personal knowledge acquired at university.

Quaderni Ircres numero 1/2017. What is the relation between public manager compensation and government effectiveness? An explorative analysis with public management implications

Mario Coccia, Igor Benati
Public managers play a central role in public administration to support the overall efficiency with appropriate public policies. In several countries, the public considers the central government senior managers overpaid. These executive compensations tend to be considered disproportionate and in-equitable in relation to the activity and results of public managers. A growing literature has analysed the possible determinants and consequences of higher levels of compensation in public and private organizations. However, a main question unknown is how the levels of compensation of public managers are related to the capacity of the government to effectively formulate and implement sound policies. The findings of this study, based on OECD and World Bank data, show that the government effectiveness and regulatory quality of nations seem to be negatively associated to high levels of compensation for central government senior manager, standardized with GDP per capita of countries. This study also shows that some possible factors of the findings can be due to low level of freedom of expression, rule of law and corruption control of some countries. These results provide fruitful insights to support best practices in public administration based on salaries in-centive-oriented that may stimulate public managers’ work and enhance the national government effectiveness of countries.

Quaderni Ircres numero 2/2017.The relation between public manager compensation and members of parliament’s salary across OECD countries: explorative analysis and possible determinants with public policy implications

Mario Coccia, Igor Benati
The compensation for central government senior managers has been the focus of considerable attention from the public, media and academia in recent years. In several countries, the average compensation of public managers, especially top level ones, has risen in a way that public considers disproportionate and inequitable. In this context, there is a hot debate that the government senior managers are overpaid. A growing literature has analysed the possible determinants of com-pensation in public and private organizations. However, some political and institutional factors af-fecting public managers’ compensation are hardly known. Here, we show that the average compen-sation for central government senior managers seems to be positively associated to average salary of members of parliament (MPs), standardized with GDP per capita of countries. In addition, results show that higher levels of compensation for central government senior managers are mainly in countries based on Mixed Executive. We also show that higher public manager compensations are associated to countries with lower freedom of expression, freedom of association, free media, lower quality of contract enforcement, property rights and corruption control. These results can provide fruitful insights to support reforms and best practices that improve the efficiency of public administration, mainly in latecomer countries.

Quaderni Ircres numero 1/2016. Emerging costs deriving from blackouts for individual firms: evidence from an Italian case study

Clementina Bruno, Ugo Finardi, Azahara Lorite-Espejo, Elena Ragazzi
Among the costs deriving to firms from electric blackouts, emerging costs are the less studied ones. This work aims at shedding some light on the specific topic with an empirical approach. It performs in fact three case studies, describing blackout emerging costs for three firms of very different industries. Data obtained in the cases are described, and a cost function is tentatively sketched. Case studies show that emerging costs, though not prevailing in value over the lost production costs, may be relevant in some cases. At the end of the work, conclusions are drawn, and learned lessons are outlined.
