AEM 4320 - Public Private Sector Economic Linkages

Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: intermediate microeconomics course.

C. K. Ranney.

Examines the role of government tax and expenditure policies in the United States using tools from microeconomic theory. Given that the government sector is almost 40 percent of total U.S. economic activity, the course analyzes two related questions: First, when and why should some economic activities be undertaken in the public rather than private sector? Second, what are the implications of governmental economic activity on private sector decision makers? An array of tax and expenditure policies are investigated with particular foci changing from year to year based on current events and student interests.
