Fighting Poverty in the US and Europe: A World of Difference by Alberto AlesinaIn this timely study of the different approaches of America and Europe to the problems of domestic inequality and poverty, the authors describe just how different the two continents are in the level of State engagement in the redistribution of income. They discuss various possible economic explanations for the difference, including different levels of pre-tax income, openness, and social mobility; they survey politico-historical differences such as the varying physical size of nations, their electoral and legal systems, and the character of their political parties, as well as their experiences of war; and they examine sociological explanations which include different attitudes to the poor and notions of social responsibility, as well as, most importantly, attitudes to race.

Carrisi has developed a fairly free adaptation of his latest best-selling novel of the same name, and it appears as though he got slightly carried away with the bewitching process of directing. Visually we see the addition of a few smartphone photos and some grainy videos, some 80s and 90s set design, hazy photography with vertical anamorphosis, and a piano, violin and flute soundtrack. Then there's a flashback: young Anna Lou Kastner, daughter of parents belonging to a fraternity of religious fanatics, leaves home two days before Christmas and disappears into the fog, allegedly abducted by a maniac assassin. Vogel arrives to investigate along with the television troupe, including hyenic journalist Stella Honer Galatea Ranzi. The first to be suspected is a mischievous kid, which then points the investigation towards a charming but well-behaved high school teacher Alessio Boni.
A winter's night. A car accident caused by heavy fog. The vehicle is wrecked, but the driver is unharmed, and yet the police detain him anyway.

The Girl in the Fog Italian : La ragazza nella nebbia is a Italian psychological thriller film based on the novel of the same name by Donato Carrisi. Anna Lou, 16 years old, disappears in the remote town of Avechot, in the middle of the Alps. The expert investigator Vogel is called to investigate, famous for creating a wide media echo around the cases he investigates. In fact, Avechot publish newspapers and television stations, which are heavily relentless on Loris Martini, a local school professor, charming but full of debts, on which the main suspicions fall. But the truth will turn out to be more convoluted than what can be thought: initially strongly suspected, later cleared when it turns out that Vogel falsified a test, putting the professor's blood on the girl's backpack, and finally the truth: Loris has deliberately circulated the clues against him but without ever leaving concrete evidence against him, in order to appear in the eyes of Vogel as the only possible killer, which would have led the investigator to do everything, licitly and otherwise, to frame it, as done in a famous case, repeatedly mentioned in the film. And on the other hand it was activated to bring out the theory that instead the murders were of a past serial killer, known as the man of the fog. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Sign in. Special agent Vogel is sent to an isolated town in a remote mountain valley to investigate the case of a sixteen years old's disappearance. On her way to church in the hazy alpine village of Avechot, the quiet year-old, Anna Lou, daughter of a religious couple, vanishes into thin air, never to return home. To aid in the investigation of this puzzling case is summoned the fastidious Detective Vogel with the questionable methods; however, amidst a full-scale media storm and half-baked leads, no one is above suspicion, villagers and newcomers alike. But is Anna Lou's troubling disappearance a case of an adolescent tantrum only days before Christmas, or is there a wolf in sheep's clothing, hiding in the otherwise peaceful community?
