Calogero Massimo Cammalleri


The poses the empiric bases to introduces kind of 'social security tax' to fight undeclared work, to reduce externalities, to substitute trust in the market with true and strong financial social protection. Therefore this paper tries to give a little contribution to break link between work and security's financing. It aims to demonstrate (also but not only, according to economics perspective) as flexicurity-balance can work in accordance with art. 31 and art. 34 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, social justice, worker security, whether the externalities inside flexicurity's trade-off will be charged to flexibility. One considers universal like widespread, as well as flexicurity studies consider it. One considers not to change anything about subjective and objective assumptions in benefits, as well as in contribution over workers' wages. - on the contrary one considers must not change (except possibles little adjustments).

The effect of the hybrids is the one way. It should introduce a virtuous cycle to reduce the gap in competitiveness between local production and extra E.U.
