Low efficiency of public administrations is considered an obstacle towards overcoming the effects of the financial crisis and recovering growth. Why does this happen? It is for sure because principles, criteria, techniques of good management are not tailored to the peculiarity of public interest organizations, but also because public integrity distortions orient people to use it as an instrument to exercise power. New Public Management has not been sufficient to break the vicious circle of inefficient public administration and a new anti-corruption law has been introduced in Italy. Its main objective is to prevent and control “the negative corruption effect” attempts towards the common good – also characterized by capital rationing – which can compromise the present and future wealth of communities.
