1 Indicazioni per la tesina di laurea triennale in Economia Internazionale Marianna Belloc Indicazioni generali La tesina consiste in un elaborato su tema dell economia internazionale o della politica economica internazionale scelto nella lista (o concordato con il docente fuori dalla lista). L elaborato deve presentare il tema oggetto di analisi in modo chiaro e sintetico, e deve inoltre contenere una rassegna critica dei più importanti lavori rilevanti presenti in letteratura. Il materiale raccolto deve essere presentato in modo originale (cioè non scopiazzando). Questo significa non riportare banalmente il contenuto di un paper dietro l altro (e tanto meno nella semplice traduzione dall inglese all italiano del lavoro altrui) ma, invece, organizzare un percorso d analisi critica. E possibile (anzi raccomandato) utilizzare tabelle riassuntive e figure. La lunghezza della tesina non deve eccedere le 50 pagine (carattere 12, doppia interlinea) tutto incluso, e deve seguire questo schema di massima: 1) Indice con indicazione del numero di pagina. 2) Abstract: breve presentazione del tema (massimo una pagina). 3) Elaborato, suddiviso in sezioni, sottosezioni, etc. 4) Lista di riferimenti bibliografici in ordine alfabetico. 5) Lista di banche dati e siti consultati (se ci sono). Nota bene Il materiale è prevalentemente in inglese, non scegliete di fare la tesina in questa materia se avete problemi nella comprensione dell inglese. Sono necessarie nozioni base di econometria-statistica (oltre che di economia internazionale, economia politica e politica economica). Non saranno accettate tesine che ricalcano in modo troppo simile papers già pubblicati, working papers, capitoli di libri, tesi di altri studenti, dispense, libri di testo, etc. Se vengono riportate frasi prese da papers già pubblicati, working papers, capitoli di libri, tesi di altri studenti, dispense, libri di testo etc, esse devono essere messe 1

2 fra virgolette; il lavoro di riferimento e la pagina devono essere menzionati fra parentesi. Leggerò l elaborato una sola volta, quando questo sarà terminato. Concordate la struttura con me per tempo e rileggete il lavoro attentamente prima di inviarmelo. Mi raccomando l ortografia (non leggerò tesine con errori di ortografia)! Non bombardatemi di . Scrivete solo se avete qualcosa da chiedere. Per piacere brevi e chiare. Indicare come titolo dell tesina triennale (non leggo senza titolo e/o non firmate). Indicazioni per la lista di riferimenti bibliografici Il riferimento bibliografico deve contenere: - se si tratta di un articolo su rivista: autore, anno, titolo del lavoro, rivista, numero di pagine: per es. Paul Krugman, The Increasing Returns Revolution in Trade and Geography, American Economic Review, vol. 99(3): pp se si tratta di un capitolo su libro: autore, anno, titolo del lavoro, titolo del libro, editore, luogo di pubblicazione, numero di pagine: per es. Krugman, Paul R., Industrial organization and international trade, Handbook of Industrial Organization, R. Schmalensee and R. Willig (ed.), Elsevier, New York: pp se si tratta di un libro: autore, anno, titolo del lavoro, titolo del libro, editore, luogo di pubblicazione: per es. Masahisa Fujita, Paul Krugman, Anthony J. Venables, The Spatial Economy: Cities, Regions, and International Trade, MIT Press Books, Cambridge (UK), vol. 1 Date un occhiata al livello degli articoli riportato qui sotto prima di contattarmi per concordare l argomento. Lista degli argomenti La lista dei lavori citati per ogni argomento è indicativa. Il vostro lavoro consiste anche nella ricerca di altro material rilevante. L anno di pubblicazione potrebbe essere diverso da quello indicato: mettete il titolo del lavoro in google e troverete la versione più aggiornata. Gli articoli pubblicati su rivista possono essere scaricati da internet (direttamente dal sito della rivista) se siete collegati ad un pc del Dipartimento di 2

3 Economia e Diritto (per esempio dalla biblioteca o dalla sala computer). La maggior parte del material non può essere scaricato da casa (perché serve l abbonamento). 1.
