教育目標

The course studies the role of government in public expenditures using microeconomics. It explores the underlying theories of public finance as well as the economic effects of public policy such as public goods and externalities, public sector pricing, education, health care and income redistribution policies. Opinions on how government should function in the economy are influencing and influenced by the relationship between the individual and the government. Along with learning from the lectures, students are required to work as a team for a debate contest on public policy issues. Students are expected to learn the underpinnings of public sector economics using microeconomic theories, analytical and graphical tools. Students should understand analysis and methods of determining, financing and impacting government expenditures, and the effects of government spending activities. Through a debate contest, students should learn how to apply principles and theories that they have learned to public economic issues and problems, how to develop one’s economic reasoning, and how to deal with different views and choices of goals.
