Work and spending habits: an exploration inside the “social issues” of crisis

Giorgio Gosetti


The main subject of the article is the effect produced by the recent crisis on employment conditions within families and their spending habits; this topic is analyzed starting from the figures published by the University of Verona’s Observatory on Family Consumption, that takes an annual survey on a sample of
individuals around Italy. According to the interpretation of the interviewees, the effects the crisis has induced on their family employment condition and spending habits are contextualized within some “social issues” on the national scene for some time, aggravated by the crisis: wage issue, poverty issue, inequality issue.
