Aims

The aim of this course is to provide an accessible and understandable introduction to public finance while engaging and encouraging students to use modern approaches of problem-solving that are related to analysis of public finance. By the end of this course, in both their written work and in tutorial discussion, the students should be able to apply commonly used approaches in public finance.

Description

The goal of studying public finance is to understand the proper role of the government in the economy.  We review the microeconomic tools necessary to understand the effects of government intervention in the economy. A major role of government is to address market failures caused by public goods and externalities. Goods with public benefits may be underprovided by the private market but the public sector faces two key problems in providing these goods: measuring their costs and benefits (Cost‑Benefit Analysis) and effectively translating voters’ preferences for public projects into public policy (Public Choice). We discuss the local provision of public goods (Fiscal Federalism). We examine the general theory of social insurance, highlighting the benefits and costs of insurance. The theoretical and empirical effects of welfare policy are reviewed. The institutional and theoretical bases for understanding tax policy and its effects are provided. We discuss how market reactions affect the equity and the efficiency implication of a tax (Tax Incidence). The basic issues of deficit finance are treated.
