ECON 682 - Public Economics
This course is designed for 2nd year Ph.D. students in economics.  It has two goals: (1) introduce some of the core theoretical and empirical public finance/economics techniques and literature, (2) help students identify thesis topics.  Towards those goals, we will read two types of papers: (1) "classics" that every well-trained public finance economist should know, (2) and new papers that represent new trends and ideas in the field.  Topics will include, but not be limited to, the following: excess burden, optimal tax theory, tax incidence, behavioral responses to taxes, federalism, and externalities.
