HUMN 8461 - Public Sector Economics


(5 cr.) Considering recent and persistent economic uncertainty and shifting economic trends in the global market, administrators in government organizations need to understand underlying economic concepts, issues, and trends in the public sector. In this course, students explore public sector economics at the local, state, and national levels. They examine the role of the government in the market economy, including the government’s redistributive role; factors affecting the economy; sources of government revenue; the relationship of public goods and the economy; programs and services funded by the government; alternative forms of delivery of programs and services; and the interaction and interconnectedness of the U.S. and global economy. Students apply concepts, processes, and systems related to public sector economics to a specific government program or service.
