This course examines the role of government in a modern economy. It develops a set of concepts that will allow students to evaluate policy alternatives. The following are among the particular topics likely to be addressed: externalities and environmental protection, education, the redistribution of income, health care, social insurance, taxation and tax reform, cost-benefit analysis, fiscal federalism, and state and local government finance. In each case, the focus is on whether intervention by government is appropriate, what the most effective form of any such intervention is, and how alternative policy interventions affect the private decisions made by citizens and business firms. Prerequisite: ECON 252

Every day, we are exposed to statistical claims from a variety of sources, including advertising, media, and politics. However, statistical claims vary in their degree of validity, accuracy, and honesty. In the age of “big data,” the ability to evaluate statistical evidence is more important than ever before. This course will encourage and equip you to detect and refute invalid, inaccurate, and dishonest statistical claims.
