The course introduces students to topics of behavioral public economics. Students learn to reflect on the distinction between normative and positive reasoning in economic discussions. This is grounded on an in-depth recapitulation of foundations of neoclassical economic theory and subsequent development of behavioral model elements in public economics. Students discuss and evaluate policy applications regarding major challenges in public economics.
