Yliopisto

Kuvaus

Studies in Public Choice programme teaches students to use economic tools to address broader social science problems. Public Policy analysis requires an approach combining insights and techniques from economics and political science. This program extends economic analysis beyond the traditional focus on market interactions to examine intended and unintended consequences of policies and to explore how and when individual self-interest among politicians, interest groups, etc. can help or hinder the public interest. Public policy analysis involves understanding: institutional design, policy evaluation and implementation and decision-making. The methods include microeconomics, game theory, experimental economics, spatial econometrics, social choice theory and econometrics.
