Abstract
The course will expose students to the state-of-the-art in public sector economics theory, while drawing on empirical evidence from developed and developing countries. The aim is to develop analytical tools and methods that will enable students to appreciate issues pertaining to public spending, taxation and financing of government. As much as possible, evidence will be drawn from African countries. By the end of the course the students should be able to: • Discuss critically key issues in public economics, informed by recent research; • Demonstrate familiarity with a range of public policy issues and relevant analytical and empirical tools.
