Abstract

Crisi economico finanziaria e enti locali. Spending review: qualificare la spesa pubblica e ridurre l'ammontare: la situazione in Italia. Nuovi modelli per perseguire l'interesse pubblico: relazione tra enti locali e non profit. Verso il sistema del valore condiviso: implicazioni attuative per gli enti locali.

The context of crisis requires to all types of organizations to introduce reforms and innovations in order to respond more effectively to the changes that are taking place. We can observe different effects from several perspectives. From an economic point of view, the crisis has created consequences on access to credit, on monetary policy, on industrial production, on the level of employment, and on the functioning of financial markets. From a political point of view, decision-making has been modified and made more centralized, more politicized and more visible to the public domain. From a social point of view, the crisis generated lower level of cohesion and increased the level of social problems in different forms: higher unemployment, lower family income, decrease in the degree of trust and the propensity to consume, growing precariousness and instability in labour and social relations. Lastly, from the public sector point of view, we can identify at least two important phenomena: 1) the crisis is changing the trajectory of the ongoing reforms; 2) the crisis has increased the level of financial stress that local governments have to face. In this perspective, the article analyses what role and what relationships can be established in the wake of the crisis between local governments and non-profit sector. In order to answer to this issue, the article presents and discusses several possible models through a matrix 2x2 that considers two dimensions: the level of financial stress that local governments face; and the level of managerial capabilities of the non-profit sector.
