Abstract

This work aims to study the causes of an economic crisis from a local perspectives. In particular, it will focus on Reggio Calabria territory to analyze how the economic and social factors have influenced the present condition of this area. At the same time, we propose a model for the growth of Reggio Calabria system, starting from the mentioned factors. We will follow an integrated systemic approach to verify, with the support of statistical data, why the crisis in Reggio Calabria has had a low impact in comparison with the rest of the world. The final analysis of the research is to propose a method for mapping the cause-effect relationships for the development of a territory, through the DPSIR-model (determinants, pressures, state, impact, response).The systems approach allows us to analyze: 1. the result of the development model, 2. relationships which are the basis of the model. Every economic analysis after the crises of 2008 and 2011 has been considered as a reflection of the U.S. financial crisis.
