CO2: Understand the theoretical foundation of macroeconomics and the contribution of different schools of thought to the further development of macroeconomics. CO3: Describe the main macroeconomic theories of short term fluctuations and long term growth in the economy. CO4: Analyze the existing idea of different schools of thought/ theories. To check whether the ideology of those theories is working practically? To have some idea on why those theories have not been able to influence/ different economic conditions CO5: Understand the factors influencing the Balance of Payment and analyse the cause of disequilibrium in the Balance of payment.

Course Objectives/Course Description 

The objective of this course is to present an introduction to public economics, which analyzes the impact of public policy on the allocation of resources and the distribution of income and wealth in the economy. We study various market failures as a justification for public action, and analyze how government policies can improve market outcomes. We address the financing side of government and consider key issues in tax policy along with contemporary issues in redistribution and social policy. Finally, selected analytical tools in public economics are discussed. Upon successful completion of this course, the students will be able to:


Learning Outcome 

CO1: Apply the basic tools, central concepts and models to solve problems in key topics in Modern Public Economics CO2: Summarize the assumptions, relevance, and limitations of the models CO3: Identify and analyse policy problems in public economics CO4: Apply analytical tools to assess arguments appearing in the policy debates.
