Public finance addresses four main questions. When should the government intervene in the economy? How might the government intervene? What is the effect of those interventions on economic outcomes? Why do governments choose to intervene in the way that they do? COURSE WEBSITE This course has a website on Blackboard. You will have to self-enroll in the site. To do so, go to: http://blackboard.cornell.edu/ . Click on “For Students .” Then click on “ How to Self-Enroll in a Blackboard Site .” I will post my lecture notes and selected overheads on the web site by 5:00 pm the day before class. You should print out the materials and bring them to class. Problem sets, problem set solutions, and other materials will also be posted on the web site.
