Description:
Course Description
This course is designed to cover the standard body of theory in Public Finance. We will also look
at the application of the standard theory to issues in Canadian government taxation, expenditure
and economic policies. This will familiarise you with the more commonly studied aspects of
Canadian public finance. The course will commence with a theoretical discussion of the theory
and analysis of government financial institutions, practices, problems and policies. Eventually,
the slant of the course will be towards policy applications and historical analysis of major events
in Canadian Public Finance.
Learning Outcomes:
This course will cover the essential elements of Canadian Public Finance. By the end of the
course a successful student should be able to:
1. Identify and understand the standard theories of
government taxation, expenditure and analysis.
2. Understand why externalities and public goods are
important sources of market failure and thus raise serious
public policy questions.
3. Understand general tax theory, along with data
requirements and the use of economic models in
applications of the theory.
4. Understand how the federal budget process works as well
as gain insights into the kind of tensions it entails between
ministers, government departments and the various regions
within Canada.
5. Understand fiscal issues of federalism and to provide an
assessment of microeconomic performance and fiscal
policy.
6. Gain insights into the more important issues surrounding
the budgetary process in Canada; how politicians,
bureaucrats and interest groups continually seek to
influence budgetary decisions.
