ECON 7222 - Economics for Public Policy

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2014

Participants are introduced to the economic way of thinking through the introduction to a series of key ideas and concepts of economics. Their application is then illustrated by reference to current public policy issues. The course adopts an international perspective, and discusses the ways in which the world economy both constrains and provides opportunities for national policy makers. Also discussed is the economics view of the policymaking process, the role and influence of interest groups and the manner in which conflicts are resolved by governments.
