11 Jan: Criptovalute: mezzo di scambio o strumento speculativo?

Criptovalute: mezzo di scambio o strumento speculativo? Milano, 11 gennaio 2018 – Il 2017 è senz’altro stato l’anno delle criptovalute. Accanto al bitcoin, esistono altre decine di monete virtuali che nell’anno appena trascorso hanno visto una crescita esponenziale del proprio valore, prime tra tutte ripple ed ethereum.

LA TIPIZZAZIONE DELLA LOCAZIONE FINANZIARIA, ALCUNI SPUNTI DI RIFLESSIONE Milano, 09 gennaio 2018 – Sebbene non sia tutt’ora rinvenibile una disciplina organica del leasing, la legge 4 agosto 2017, n. 124 costituisce un tassello fondamentale nel processo di tipizzazione di tale istituto, finalmente definito nei suoi tratti essenziali e peculiari. Il legislatore ha disciplinato la locazione finanziaria in cinque commi della legge annuale per il mercato e la concorrenza (legge 124/2017), senza dedicare a tale figura contrattuale un provvedimento ad hoc. Analogamente il leasing abitativo non gode di una disciplina sua propria, in quanto la relativa regolamentazione si disperde fra i numerosissimi…
