Regionalismo del Patrimonio del fisco e sue implicazioni teoriche e pratiche
AbstractRegionalism of landed properties of the imperial fiscus and its theoreticaland practical implications
In this article, I review the recent trends in the study of ancient economy.With regard to the role of the imperial financial administration, Iargue that a highly promising field of application of modern economictheories such as the ‘New Institutional Econonomics’, is indeed thestudy of the economic role of the imperial landed properties. By takingas case studies the creation of local offices for the financial managementof imperial domains, and the refusal of the Flavian Emperors toencroach upon the economic interests of the propertied classes of Italy,I have tried to prove the case that the imperial fiscus managed its landedproperties proactively; we may indeed speak of an ‘imperial economicpolicy’ with reference to the imperial domains.
