Andrea has successfully defended his doctoral thesis entitled Deriving a normal country. Italian capitalism and the political economy of financial derivatives.
This study examines how key agents deploy financial innovation on the ground, for their own strategies and in the context of domestic conflicts. It shows how the Italian government adopted derivatives to meet the Maastricht criteria; how corporations exploited these instruments to restore oligarchic power; and, finally, how municipalities used them to circumvent Europe-imposed budget constraints.
