The goals of this course are twofold. The first goal is to deepen your appreciation of the use of political economy to evaluate and critique the efficacy and efficiency of public policies. As such, it is a course in applied microeconomics that builds on the Economic & Policy Analysis I course.  The second goal is to promote the writing and rhetorical skills needed to create compelling analyses of economic policy. In addition to being graded on class participation, students will be graded on various assignments, such as policy briefs, opeds, and presentations.

Prerequisite: Economic Policy Analysis I.
