    Learning Outcomes
    The objective of the Public Choice section of ECON 405 is to promote an understanding of the interface between economics and other social sciences, and in particular political science. We will look at how to develop a general theory for modelling collective decisions and analyse the empirical factors explaining observed political/economic choices in a democracy.
