Learning outcomes

The goal of this course is to provide the students with the basic tools needed to analyse the role of the government. Within the theoretical framework of welfare economics, we study government intervention aimed at correcting market failures and redistributing income. A special attention is given to the specific institutional features of public revenues and expenditures in Italy.

Student learning outcomes: students will be able to understand the theoretical motivations behind government intervention; they will be also able to apply the theory to the analysis of the specific public finance tools used in Italy.
