Catalogue data

AbstractIn 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.
ObjectiveAfter 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.
