Abstract

Italian Abstract: Da qualche tempo i media, gli attori sociali e gli amministratori pubblici stanno dedicando una particolare attenzione alle difficoltà del sistema cooperativo trentino, ma con una tendenza a soffermarsi su specifiche realtà, senza affrontare invece la questione in termini generali, attraverso un’analisi sistematica dell’intero settore e della sua evoluzione. Risulta quindi non solo utile, ma necessario, provare a fare qualche passo avanti nella riflessione, da una parte analizzando i comportamenti di tutte le imprese per capire la portata e la diffusione dei problemi e, dall’altra, articolando l’analisi sia per aree e settori che per forme giuridiche. Il presente articolo intende perciò approfondire il ruolo delle diverse forme di impresa nel sistema economico trentino, per fornire successivamente una valutazione comparata, dapprima, con la vicina provincia di Bolzano e, in seguito, con l’intera economia italiana.Questo approfondimento si tradurrà quindi in un utile esercizio per verificare la tenuta delle evidenze rilevate in questi anni dalle ricerche di Euricse anche rispetto al quadro economico-occupazionale della regione Trentino-Alto Adige.

English Abstract:Recently, mass media and social actors are paying particular attention to the problems faced by the cooperative system in the province of Trento. However, they tend to focus on specific situations and do not address the issue in general terms. For a more comprehensive approach, it is useful to study this sector in its complexity by means of an analysis of the entire cooperative system and its evolution. It is also important to study the behavior of firms in general, to better understand the extent and diffusion of problems. Moreover, the analysis has to consider geographical areas, sectors and firm types. In light of the above, our work is an attempt to understand how the different firm types contributed to the growth of the gross domestic product in the province of Trento, compared to the results of the neighboring province of Bolzano and the national context. This comparative analysis is also aimed at verifying whether the empirical evidence gathered in the last years by the researches carried out by Euricse, at the national, regional and local level, is also confirmed for the Trentino-Alto Adige region.
