Fall 2014 quarter

Taught by

Public Finance and Fiscal Policy – Course Description: This course covers the theory and practice of public finance and fiscal policy.  Knowledge of the practice of public finance and budgeting is necessary to be an effective decision maker in federal, state, local, tribal or nonprofit organizations. A solid theoretical base will help to understand some of the consequences of spending and revenue policies at all levels, It is also important to be able to articulate the care for or against a particular policy or decision. Advocates, perhaps not in the room when decisions are made, need a base to assess fiscal proposals, and theory is the foundation of assessment.  Theory too is at the base of regulatory frameworks.  This course will include lectures, speakers, cases and readings.  Students will complete a research project where they will examine a program or revenue source, implemented or proposed.
