​BECO405-PUBLIC FINANCE & FISCAL POLICY (3Cr.:3Lec): 

This course is meant to provide an understanding of how budgetary policy and institutional arrangements for fiscal policy operate and how they can be captured and analyzed in economic models. We focus on both the short run, that is at the frequency of the business cycle, and the long run, where we pay due attention of the consequences of rising costs associated with population ageing.
