    Cristina Bicchieri, Ram Mudambi & Pietro Navarra (2005). A Matter of Trust: The Search for Accountability in Italian Politics, 1990–2000. Mind and Society 4 (1):129-148.
    During the Nineties Italian politics underwent major changes. Following the uncovering of systemic corruption, the current political establishment was wiped out. The system of representation at both the national and local level underwent a significant transformation that improved voters’ control over their elected representatives. We argue that both events were the consequence of citizens’ demand for greater accountability of public officers. We model the relationship between voters and politicians as a repeated Trust game. In such game, cooperation can be attained (...)

  2. Sebastiano Bavetta, Pietro Navarra & Dario Maimone (2014). Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness: An Economic and Political Perspective. Cambridge University Press.

    Sebastiano Bavetta & Pietro Navarra (2012). The Economics of Freedom. Cambridge University Press.
    What is freedom? Can we measure it? Does it affect policy? This book develops an original measure of freedom called 'Autonomy Freedom', consistent with J. S. Mill's view of autonomy, and applies it to issues in policy and political design. The work pursues three aims. First, it extends classical liberalism beyond exclusive reliance on negative freedom so as to take autonomous behavior explicitly into account. Second, it grounds on firm conceptual foundations a new standard in the measurement of freedom that (...)

  5. Ram Mudambi, Pietro Navarra & Giuseppe Sobbrio (eds.) (2001). Rules and Reason: Perspectives on Constitutional Political Economy. Cambridge University Press.
    Polarization in Western democracies and the collapse of centrally planned economies have led to calls for a redefinition of the state's core functions. This volume explores shifting conceptions of constitutional political economy anchoring the state from the viewpoints of theory, systems, and applications. It suggests why changes may be desirable and how these might be implemented. Part I addresses the writing of constitutions, the dynamic between constitutional order and civil society, the struggle between competitive and protectionist interests, the conflict between (...)
