CRP 5120 - Public and Spatial Economics for Planners

Spring. 3 credits.

No prior knowledge of economics necessary.


Covers basic microeconomic theory and some topics in macroeconomics. What distinguishes it from foundation courses in economics is that the context of every topic is both spatial and public. The concept of space is central to city and regional planning. The perspective of the public and nonprofit sectors is the same as that of city and regional planning. Both space and the public-nonprofit sectors are peripheral to (or absent from) the usual graduate foundations courses in economics. The course also covers the economic theory necessary to understand the many applications of economics presented in subsequent courses in city and regional planning.
