363-1008-00LPublic Economics3 KP2VM. Köthenbürger, G. Loumeau
KurzbeschreibungPublic Economics analyses the role of the government in the economy. In this course we will discuss justifications for and the design of public policy as well as its consequences on market outcomes. Issues related to public goods, taxation, in particular the effects of tax policy on labor supply, entrepreneurship and innovation will be emphasized.
LernzielThe primary goal of the course is to familiarize students with the central concepts and principles of public economics. The course aims at providing a good understanding of theoretical work and how it may be applied to actual policy problems. Students will get a good overview of recent key contributions in the field and how these relate to empirical observations.

KurzbeschreibungIn the doctoral course, we will discuss recent advances in public economics. After a review of basic concepts in public economics, we go through recent papers on taxation, social security and fiscal federalism. Students will be asked to present a paper and to critically comment on it (as if they would referee the paper). The paper presentation will take place at the end of the semester.
LernzielAfter the course participants will have a solid understanding of the current state of research in the selected fields in public economics and, starting from there, will be able to develop their own research ideas.
