(p.83) Chapter 9 Italy
Political Determinants of Corporate Governance

Mark J. Joe

Oxford University Press

Italy's features, although they nicely support a contrasting, law-centred thesis, display aspects of political thesis — a strong communist party, ideologies that were hostile to markets, and concentrated ownership. Social and economic conflict in large industrial firms was intense, and they were not well-suited to diffuse ownership and managerial control. Governments pressed firms not to restructure. Meanwhile, conservative governments sought to prop up the small firm, which they believed employees would be less susceptible to appeals from the left.

Keywords:   Italy, concentrated ownership, communist party, Draghi commission
