Cíle předmětu
The course presents an introduction to Public Economics. It deals with that part of national economy which is funded from redistributive processes and which is usually referred to as the Public Sector (PS). The subject matter is divided into two interrelated blocks. The first block works more deeply with some basic concepts known to the students from Microeconomics course, mainly the econimic role of the government. The rationale for the public sector is explored here as well, with the objective being the enhancement of critical and analytical economic-thinking of students. The second block deals with the experimental methods as worthwhile approach to tackle issues related to Public Economics, with a focus on cooperation dilemmas. This block features pertinent contributions from guest lecturers and participation in a controlled laboratory experiment, with the goal of providing insights into the role of incentives in Public Policy.
Výstupy z učení
At the end of the course, students will be able to: * use critical and analytical economic-thinking in the evaluation of public sector activities. * master knowledge of measures and tools reducing the natural tendency of the public sector to inefficiency. * understand principles of economic experimentation and the use of experiments in support of policy-making.
