Master APE and PPD: Public Economics

The objective of this course is to present an introduction to public economics, with special emphasis on the history of taxation, public spending and state formation, normative theories of government intervention and redistribution, and the incidence of tax and transfer policies, both in developed countries and in the developing world.

This course is co-taught by Antoine Bozio, Julien Grenet, Thomas Piketty, and Gabriel Zucman. My part of the course covers international tax competition and tax evasion.
