We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Fall 2016 quarter

Taught by

Public Finance Policy will review finance and fiscal policy challenges facing federal, state, and local governments. We will examine issues central to public expenditure programs, and taxation policies. Students will seek practical solutions to planning, implementation, and reporting problems in public finance. The course will discuss budgetary formation, deliberation, adoption, implementation and execution. Further, each aspect of finance policy will be examined in order to understand the process, functions, and history of public budgeting reform. The course will discuss revenue policy, the spending of public resources, dynamics of changing budget processes, and issues associated with balancing budgets. Students –  in the role of citizens, administrators, and public officials –  shall engage public finance policy issues of concern to them in pursuit of fairness.
