Abstract

This paper posits a novel resource policy for the resource-rich southern Italian region of Basilicata. The policy consists of establishing a regionally owned wealth fund the Basilicata Wealth Fund, in which royalty revenues from natural resources in Basilicata can be stored as low-risk financial assets. The paper pins down and simulates the dynamics of different fiscal expenditure rules. The Basilicata Wealth Fund strengthens long-run economic development and fosters higher accountability, hence avoiding misuse of resource revenues for myopic fiscal spending. The Basilicata Wealth Fund constitutes a novel approach that can be followed by other resource-rich regions.
