Pareto Inspired Articles in the Giornale degli Economisti after 1923


From Pareto’s death in 1923 until 1975, the number of Paretian articles published in the Giornale degli Economisti alone is staggering: over 100 articles were published on Pareto inspired themes or on the work of Pareto himself. The year 1975 is significant because it was the last year in which Giovanni Demaria edited the Journal and from that years onwards, works pertaining to Pareto virtually disappeared from the Journal. As a consequence, the focus in this subsection is limited to the period 1924 to 1975, with articles published over this period listed in Table 2 using the same general subject headings adopted in Table 1.

The time span covering Table 2 includes two brief ‘commemorative’ periods: 1924-26, the first few years after Pareto’s death; and 1948-49, with articles celebrating the centenary of Pareto’s birth in 1848. Articles written in these brief periods were generally reflective and account for around 40% of the Paretian articles published in the Giornale degli Economisti in the 52 years to 1975. In Italy, a similar flurry of commemorative publications occurred at other significant occasions, although not in the Giornale degli Economisti. The fiftieth anniversary of Pareto’s death in 1973 was marked by a major conference, with speakers including J. R Hicks, Maurice Allais, Raymond Aron, Gottfried Eisermann, Samuel Finer, Norberto Bobbio, Talcott Parsons Nicholas Georgescue-Roegen and Giovanni Busino, with the proceedings published in Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei (1975). Similarly, around the centenary of the Cours in 1996-97 three international conferences were convened (Pisa, Torino, Lausanne), with the proceeding from each published in Faucci (1997), Bridel and Tatti (1999) and Malandrino and Marchionatti (2000). This has some sociological relevance: it reveals that the community of economists and sociologists in Europe, particularly Italy, reveal a desire to commemorate and reflect on the work of Pareto at regular intervals corresponding with significant anniversaries. It supports the case for a Pareto school, not necessarily in terms of the science contributed by Pareto and his circle, but in the sociological sense where this intellectual episode is preserved and kept as a living part of intellectual history.

Outside of these commemorative periods, there were relatively large numbers of articles published which have been categorized as ‘general’ in Table 2.

The work and its interpretations: on recent Paretian studies

(g) 41 articles on general, historical and miscellaneous articles


By the middle of the twentieth-century, Pareto’s historical significance had become so well recognized in Italy that a broad range of Paretian research areas, and many specialist areas, were investigated. In the Giornale degli Economisti, some of Pareto’s letters were published (Griziotti 1955, Giacalone-Monaco 1957, 1962), unpublished manuscripts discussed (Bousquet 1967), biographical notes written (Bousquet 1956, 1957, 1963, Giacalone-Monaco 1959, 1967, Busino 1963, ) diaries published (Demaria 1958, Pareto 1958, Bagiotti 1958), a number of works written on Pareto’s ‘Chonache’ for the Journal (Giacalone-Monaco 1960, 1965) and a survey article included on recent Paretian studies. Two contributors were also active in publishing books on Pareto. Tommaso Giacalone-Monaco edited Pareto’s letters and papers to Carlo Placci (Giacalone-Monaco 1957), Léon Walras (Giacalone-Monaco 1960) and Emilia Peruzzi (Pareto 1968). Giovanni Busino published his surveys of Paretian studies, ranging from 1960 to 1973 (as well as observations on Pareto and his critics between 1923 and 1959) in Gli Studi so Vilfredo Pareto Oggi (1974). Busino is also the editorial director of Pareto’s compete works.

Outside the ‘general category’, the number of articles published in the Giornale degli Economisti diminished during the non-commemorative periods. In the field of applied economics, there is little sign of new Paretian type analysis undertaken, although, the debate between Lanzillo (1932a, 1932b) and Alimento is of interest for touching on the relevance of the Pareto distribution for elites and societies. The number of Paretian articles on pure economics and public finance, politics and sociology was also much reduced.

In pure economics, the most prolific Paretian writer publishing in the Giornale degli Economisti was Guido Sensini. His papers either dealt with issues that Pareto investigated; such as the path dependence and independence of ophelimity in open and close circles (Sensini 1947a, 1947b) and the variable prices in mathematical economics (Sensini 1951); or investigated Pareto’s treatment of functions in economics (Sensini 1950). His most significant contribution in pure theory was ‘Le equazioni dell’equilibrio economico nell’ipotesi di sottrazioni di ricchezza operate del governo sugli i determinati individui della collettività’ (Sensini 1930). This study, which re-worked studies undertaken a decade earlier, formalized pure equilibrium outcomes, for both complete competition and monopoly, once government has reduced individuals’ real income directly (direct taxation) or indirectly via changing the coefficients of production (indirect taxation). Instead of undertaking general equilibrium modelling of a world that abstracts for the notion of government, this paper carves out a place for pure equilibrium economics in a world that recognizes government, leaving a deliberate gap to be filled by studies in public finance, which is the area of research where Sensini’s contributions are most remembered today.

However, the most important contribution to pure theory by a Paretain was made by Luigi Amoroso, and of his contributions to the Giornale degli Economisti, ‘Le equazioni dell’equilibrio economico dinamico’ (Amoroso 1929) is perhaps his most significant. Pareto’s work in pure economics was essentially static. His attempts to considered dynamic influences were tentative and constrained, mainly because he realized that sociological factors act to make human action, including the ophelimity and utility associated with such action, path dependent over time. Amoroso embraced the study of dynamics, and the importance of this article is that it was a stepping stone from which Amoroso was to make significant contributions to dynamic theory (Amoroso 1932, 1940).

A similar story emerges in the area of fiscal studies and sociology, as most papers in the Giornale degli Economisti during the commemorative periods are reflective assessments. Outside these periods, the most significant paper is Guido Sensini’s ‘Cenni di Finanza teorica’ (1929), which marks the final development in Paretian public finance. After that, research in Paretian fiscal sociology almost disappreas from the Journal although it continued to endure for another few decades in Italian public finance textbooks. For example, Marco Fanno’s Elementi di Scienza delle Finanze (1936) and Jacopo Tivaroni’s Compendio di Scienza delle Finanze (1942) both discusses the various approaches to public finance, including that of the ‘Teoria Sociologica’ (Fanno 1936, pp. 12-16 and Tivaroni 1942, pp. 18-19). Similarly, in his Principii di Scienza delle Finanze, Mauro Fasiani (1941) carefully specified the system within which fiscal decisions are made in a manner that drew extensively from Pareto’s work. However, the Paretian approach to public finance, or more specifically fiscal sociology, rarely re-appeared in research. Perhaps the only innovative, significant, and almost covert, Paretian research is this period of decline was by Aldo Scotto, a student of Mauro Fasiani, in his ‘Di un indice di decentramento finanziario’ (Scotto 1950). Around this time, the Paretian approach was subject to quite sustained criticism. Celestino Arena (1950) was supportive of a moderate version of ‘sociological finance’, but not the extreme position taken by Pareto’s followers. Gustavo Del Vecchio in Introduzione alla Finanza (1954 [2001]) went so far as to deny the possibility of determining scientific principles for ‘sociological finance’ although, this provocative assessment did not go unchallenged in the Giornale degli Economisti. Scotto wrote ‘Note in margine ad un nuovo libro di finanze’ (1954) which contained a systematic defence of the sociological approach to public finance although, curiously, he used Maffeo Pantaleoni’s work on selection theory as the main basis for the defence and not the work of Pareto or the Paretians.15

Fiscal sociology then disappeared from the Giornale degli Economisti until Ernest D’Albergo wrote a series of public finance articles between 1963 and 1967. However, its reappearance was not for the purposes of developing it further. Rather, D’Albergo used the scheme developed by Sensini in ‘Cenni di finanza teorica’ (1929) to differentiate his work from fiscal sociology and advocate a public economics that utilises Pareto sociological concepts. In short, he absorbed the welfare analysis from Pareto’s sociology within an economics of public finance and dispensed with the sociology of public finance. As schools are necessarily episodic, this supports the notion of a Pareto school: with the final demise of a school may be associated with the absorption of selected scientific elements of the school by the new mainstream, with the rest being discarded. Other elements of Paretian fiscal socially were then largely discarded.
