Abstract

Italian Abstract: Il lavoro analizza l’evoluzione recente delle economie del Nord Ovest italiano, concentrandosi sui fenomeni della deindustrializzazione e della terziarizzazione dell’economia. Dal confronto con un gruppo di regioni europee definibili come “industriali avanzate”, emerge come il ritardo di crescita economica del Nord Ovest, accentuatosi nel corso degli anni duemila, sia avvenuto in un contesto di cambiamenti strutturali per alcuni versi simili, ma per altri peculiari; in particolare, sembrano prevalere specificità che frenano la competitività del Nord Ovest, come una transizione troppo lenta verso i settori manifatturieri ad alta intensità tecnologica, e verso i servizi a elevato contenuto di conoscenza. Il confronto internazionale evidenzia il persistere di un divario che riguarda fattori importanti per la crescita e l’innovazione; tra questi si segnala la piccola dimensione delle imprese (che tende peraltro ad accentuarsi), i ritardi nella dotazione di capitale umano, la debolezza della situazione economica e finanziaria delle imprese. Anche nella lunga recessione emergono, comunque, segnali di dinamismo, connessi ad alcune realtà imprenditoriali altamente competitive, leader a livello internazionale.

English Abstract: The paper analyzes the recent evolution of the economies of the Italian North West, focusing on the phenomena of de-industrialization and the transition to a service economy. The comparison is made with a group of European regions defined as "advanced industrial". Results show that the sluggish economic growth of the North West (which has worsened in the last decade) has taken place in a context of heavy economic structural changes. Some of these, which are specific to the North West, seem to have further hampered the competitiveness of the area, such as a too slow transition towards technology-intensive manufacturing sectors and to knowledge intensive services. The international comparison shows persistent gaps regarding important factors for growth and innovation; among these, the small firm size, delays in the human capital accumulation, the weakness of the economic and financial situation of enterprises. Even in the long recession, we observe signs of dynamism, like some highly competitive firms and territories, which are able to compete even at international level.
