Public Sector Economics and the Global Economy
0.5 Credit

The goal of economic efficiency focuses on achieving the best outcomes for society given its fixed resources. In this course, students examine public sector choices of tax and expenditure policies to achieve that goal. Particular attention is paid to the constraints imposed on policy choices of national and sub-national governments by ever-greater integration of nation-states.
