Corruzione, disastro italiano: ci costa 230 miliardi l’anno (siamo tra i peggiori in Europa) – l’Espresso
Industry lobbyists have wrecked plans to overhaul safety regulations for medical devices in Europe, report Simon Bowers, Deborah Cohen, and colleagues from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists . Meanwhile, confidential injury and malfunction reports have tripled in less than 10 years in many European countries For the past decade, European lawmakers have been at the centre of a lobbying storm. Bold plans to overhaul safety regulations for the millions of medical implants embedded in patients each year—including artificial hips, breast implants, stents, defibrillators, and pacemakers—have been wrecked by an army of lobbyists. An investigation by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and its partner news organisations, including The BMJ, has discovered how top EU politicians and officials were won over by misleading claims from implant industry lobby groups. These claims had a pivotal role in shaping the course of EU policy and killing off any prospect of a fundamental strengthening of medical device regulation, first in the European Commission and later in the European parliament.

Nepotistic practices are detrimental for academia. Here I show how disciplines with a high likelihood of nepotism can be detected using standard statistical techniques based on shared last names among professors. As an example, I analyze the set of all 61,340 Italian academics. I find that nepotism is prominent in Italy, with particular disciplinary sectors being detected as especially problematic. Out of 28 disciplines, 9 – accounting for more than half of Italian professors – display a significant paucity of last names. Moreover, in most disciplines a clear north-south trend emerges, with likelihood of nepotism increasing with latitude. Even accounting for the geographic clustering of last names, I find that for many disciplines the probability of name-sharing is boosted when professors work in the same institution or sub-discipline. Using these techniques policy makers can target cuts and funding in order to promote fair practices.
