Econometric Evaluation of Economic Policies
Tight public budgets increase the need to learn more about the effectiveness and efficiency of public policy measures. The empirical evaluation of these policies, however, is connected with difficult methodological problems. This module discusses the newest developments in the literature on the empirical evaluation of economic policy measures. A lecture introduces the basic concepts. Central contributions to the literature will be presented by the students themselves and discussed by the participants in a detailed way.
