Master (6 CP) Lecture and Tutorial "Principles of Public Economics"
In this course, students gain a deep understanding of the state's role in the economy. Building on key methods and concepts of public economics, we discuss the scope for and limitations of government intervention in the context of social welfare, market failure, public goods, and externalities. Combining theoretical insights and empirical evidence, we also cover the political economy underlying government action as well as highly debated topics, such as redistribution, social security, and public debt. By participating in this quantitative lecture- and tutorial-based course, students gain command of basic models and methods of analyzing public economic issues as well as the ability to apply this conceptual knowledge to policy issues. They learn how data can be used to corroborate their economic thinking and develop evidence-based policy advice.
The materials for the lecture will be provided via MS Teams. We will provide you with the access code via Jogustine and during the first lecture.
