The Quaderni del Dipartimento di Economia Politica e Statistica (Department of Economics and Statistics Working Papers) are published to help timely dissemination of original contributions. The Quaderni are regularly sent to the Research Papers in Economics (REPEC). The publication of a paper is approved by the Scientific Coordinator following to a report from a referee.
From 1979 to 1987 the name of the present series was Quaderni dell'Istituto di Economia. We have maintained the same progressive numbering of working papers.
