Economic Policy (FUNDP campus) [30.0]
This aims to analyse and asses economic policies implemented at different levels of power (European, federal, regional) : budgetary and fiscal policy, monetary policy, market regulation, industrial policy, income distribution, competition and the organization of the state. There is a wide variety of approaches : reasoning based on economic theories, case studies, calculation exercises and simulations.
This is particularly designed for students interested in a career in the civil service, at European, national and regional level; in private companies with an interest in public policy making such as taxation or regulation ; and in the research and consultation process prior to decisions being taken (e.g. research departments in trades unions, business, banks, political parties and lobbying, government departments and ministerial offices, consultancies and international bodies).
