Depressi e infelici

La crescita del PIL pro capite negli Stati Uniti negli ultimi anni è stata accompagnata da altri fattori allarmanti per il benessere soggettivo: il peggioramento delle condizioni di salute, il declino della fiducia sociale ed il declino della fiducia nel governo. L’influente economista americano Jeffrey Sachs, nell’ultimo World Happiness Report, suggerisce un elemento comune alla base di questi insuccessi: l’esser diventati una società di “dipendenza di massa”.

I am Associate Professor of Economics at the Dept. of Economics & Statistics “Cognetti de Martiis” of the Univ. of Turin, and research affiliate at Collegio Carlo Alberto. I studied Political Science at Bachelor’s and Master’s level at the Univ. Federico II in Naples, the lovely city where I grew up and where I’ve learnt how to survive most other places of the world. Then I received the MSc in Development Economics and the PhD in Economic Theory & Institutions at the Univ. of Rome “Tor Vergata”. Although I was trained as an economist my research topics are at the intersection between different social sciences. They include social preferences (e.g. trust, altruism, cooperation), subjective well-being, happiness and development (e.g. microfinance, civil war and natural disasters). I use experimental- and applied-economics methods such as fieldworks, lab-experiments, policy evaluation tools and analysis of survey data. I founded and currently lead CLOSER (Center for LabOratory Simulations and Experimental Research) with the aim of bringing together psychologists, sociologists and economists for a broader understanding of human behavior. I love riding my mountain and road bikes, swimming, traveling, listening to music and playing it with my indie-rock band.
