Public Finance and Public Policy (PE 4615) with Prof. Veronika Dolar
Public finance (also known as public economics) analyzes the impact of public policy on the allocation of resources and the distribution of income in the economy. The public sector accounts for about a third of all economic activity in the United States; and that ratio is small compared to some other industrialized countries. Government affects almost everything that we do in our daily lives, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. In this course, you will learn how to use the tools of microeconomics and empirical analysis to study the taxing and the spending activities of the government. In this class topics such as social security, health insurance, income distribution and welfare programs, externalities and public goods, and taxation at federal, state, and local levels will be discussed.
