Economy and Human Development in Antonio Genovesi and Amartya Sen

Master's degree in European Political Sciences and Development Strategies

University of Naples "Frederick II", 19th December 2013, Language: Italian, Advisor: Marco Musella

The thesis analyzes the tradition of Civil Economy of Neapolitan economist Antonio Genovesi, comparing it with the important theory of the Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen. Both contributions are essential inasmuch as they place cultural and economic reciprocity and the well-being of individuals at the centre of the debate and intend to "reform" the dominant capitalist and individualist model that is going through a crisis now. Within the same topicality, professors Zamagni, Gui and Bruni were also interviewed about the proposals of Civil Economy and about doing business today. Civil is not a "new" adjective to be set aside for the identification of a specific sector, but to be understood as the key to a broader and more unified understanding, a cultural perspective from which the whole of economy can be interpreted. It is a style that you can practice in businesses, organizations of civil society, thereby making relatedness the reason for existence. And the EoC is a concrete example of this.
