Design and Implementation of the Human Capital Report: The Case of the Biomedical Branch of the University of Florence  [PDF]
Cristiana Parisi, Paola Rossi
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2016.64068
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to develop a Human Capital Report focused on the competency profile of the key employees. Employing the case study of Biomedical Branch of University of Florence, we have designed a strategy map centred on key stakeholders: students, university, didactic and research centres, businesses. Furthermore, we have designed a model for the management of human resources, integrating two different approaches: individual and organic. On the basis of this model, semi-structured interview was carried out to obtain rich data on the current competences of key employees, divided in three personal characteristics for each strategic theme: knowledge, skills, aptitudes. The results of our analysis show where the competences of the key personnel are lacking, the strategic initiatives to take in the future, and the lead indicators to use for measure the effects of the initiatives. This study contributes to the previous literature, describing how university institutes can measure the human capital readiness.
Central Bank Communication, Ambiguity and Market Interest Rates: A Case Study  [PDF]
Carlo Di Giorgio, Enzo Rossi
Modern Economy (ME) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/me.2012.33039
Abstract: We asked a representative sample of European banks to judge messages released by ECB members (from February 1999 to February 2000) in terms of their ambiguity. In this paper, we use our survey to derive a definition of ambiguity and to evaluate ECB communication. A Structural Vector Autoregression model is estimated and the results show that ambiguous messages were able to affect agents’ expectations for a limited period after a speech by ECB members; moreover, they show that ambiguity had temporary effects also on volatility and moved rates away from the policy rate.
Aristóteles y la lluvia, una vez más
Rossi, Gabriela;
Diánoia , 2010,
Abstract: the text of physics 2.8 has been recently interpreted so as to restore the reading that aristotle holds an external, and even an anthropocentric, natural teleology. this reading has been defended by d. furley, and especially by d. sedley. in this paper i present several arguments against this interpretation of the text. thus, i will argue that aristotle does not claim, in this chapter, that it rains for the sake of the growing of the crop, against an opinion which is currently somewhat extended among interpreters.
El Banco Nacional de Suiza: un se?alador flexible de objetivos de inflación
Rossi, Sergio;
Investigación económica , 2009,
Abstract: the monetary-policy strategy that the swiss national bank has been implementing since january 1, 2000 offers an interesting case study for those central banks aiming to refer to a 'principles-based' framework as a valid alternative to a rigidly defined inflation-targeting regime. this paper shows that swiss monetary policy, characterized by its high flexibility degree since the years of monetary targeting, has been able to consider both price stability and economic stabilization in its decision-making process. as a matter of fact, the central bank in switzerland stands ready to allow temporary deviations from its price stability goal, when the domestic economy is (likely to be) suffering from output and employment losses, owing to internal or foreign disturbances or economic shocks. all in all, empirical evidence supports a monetary-policy regime marrying a long-run nominal anchor for price stability -defined by the central bank rather than government- with short-run flexibility in view of actual and expected economic performance in the real sector. inflation-targeting monetary authorities ought to consider moving from a hierarchical view of policy goals to a flexible approach based on sound macroeconomic principles. this case study shows the way for any central banks enjoying a high level of credibility and reputation, and willing to improve the policy record on both (real and monetary) fronts.
Constitución y utilización de la fuerza de trabajo: Relaciones entre la educación y el obrero colectivo
Trabajo y sociedad , 2012,
Abstract: the argument exposed util now was intended to analize in a critical way the relation between work and its more and more complex relation with education, in different aspects. particularly considering education as a contribution to the constitution of labour power and, between living work and education (or speeking precisely, pedagogical practices) in work places. it was in this aspect that the constitution of the colective worker and the need for considering in a more extended way the notion of cooperation was suggested as the axis of the formulation.

Rossi, Gustavo;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452012000100004

Liberal Democracy and the Challenge of Ethical Diversity
Enzo Rossi
Human Affairs , 2008, DOI: 10.2478/v10023-008-0002-8
Abstract: What do we talk about when we talk about ethical diversity as a challenge to the normative justifiability of liberal democracy? Many theorists claim that liberal democracy ought to be reformed or rejected for not being sufficiently ‘inclusive’ towards diversity; others argue that, on the contrary, liberalism is desirable because it accommodates (some level of) diversity. Moreover, it has been argued that concern for diversity should lead us to favour (say) neutralistic over perfectionist, universalistic over particularistic, participative over representative versions of liberal democracy. This paper provides a conceptual framework to situate those debates, and argues that there are two fundamental ways in which diversity constitutes a challenge to the justificatory status of liberal democracy: consistency (whereby diversity causes clashes between the prescriptions generated by normative political theories), and adequacy (whereby diversity generates a rift between our experience of what is considered valuable and what the theory treats as such).
Aspetti psicosociali nelle funzioni di base
Fabio Rossi
Rivista di Psicologia dell'Emergenza e dell'Assistenza Umanitaria , 2012,
Abstract: One of the principal merits of the Guidelines for mental health and psychosocialsupport in emergency settings issued by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee/IASC has been that of attributing a psychosocial value to all those functions considered“less noble” in such post-emergency settings as rescue camps – the socalledbasic functions. Indeed, a series of psychic connotations is inherent in allthe issues relating to nutrition and safety in alimentation, the logistic of the managementof post-emergency gathering points, and the water supply and the hygienicservices. These psychic connotations are mainly due to the special nature ofthe circumstance, in which such fundamental functions necessarily have manyfeatures of strong social sharing.This article focuses on these basic functions. In particular, it discusses the waythey appeared and have been dealt with during the emergency caused by theearthquake that hit L’Aquila on the 6th of April 2009. To this end, it will be attemptedto do a review of all of the basic functions highlighted by the IASC’sGuidelines, analyzing the psychosocial aspects implicated in them and offering arange of operative instructions on how to protect the mental health of people inthese aspects as well as others.
Tensiones dialécticas en el pragmatismo humanista de William James
Paula Rossi
Límite , 2008,
Abstract: En el presente trabajo me propongo examinar ciertas tensiones dialécticas inherentes al pragmatismo humanista de William James con el propósito de demostrar que las mismas, lejos de dificultar la comprensión de su obra, nos ayudan a dilucidar la siguiente conclusión fundamental de su pensamiento filosófico: la ganancia experiencial meta última de la vida humana es generalmente deudora de la conjunción y convivencia de no-ciones filosóficas en pugna.
