Progetto di ricerca

Changing societies in the post-crash era: three quasi experimental approaches

The research is intended as a collection of three papers on the changing functioning of post-crisis societies. Specific attention will be given to the development of new forms of work, to the effects of post-truth politics and to distributional changes in wealth, assessing aspects of these phenomena through the tools of applied micro-econometrics. The first chapter “Workers in the Crowd: The Labour Market Impact of the Online Platform Economy”, focuses on micro-task outsourcing, comparing labour market outcomes between platform and traditional workers, exploiting caregiving as an exogenous source of variation influencing participation in crowdwork rounds across the US and EU female population. The second paper, “Does fake news affect voting behaviour?”, focuses on the effects of the spread of misinformation over electoral outcomes during the 2018 Italian General elections, taking advantage of a natural experiment typical of the the South Tyrol province. The final paper, whose title is still to be defined, will investigate the effectiveness of Pareto adjustments to the top tail of the wealth distribution in household surveys when assessing the distributional changes in wealth after the 2008 economic crisis.
