This course builds on API-101 to develop microeconomic tools of analysis for policy problems through various policy applications. The course is broadly focused on evaluating the rationale for government intervention in the economy and evaluating the efficiency, incentive, and distributional effects of government policies. The B section focuses on applications at the nexus of business and government, including public health and safety, regulation and antitrust policy in markets for hospital services, health care insurance, pharmaceuticals, and the services of health care professions, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and others. Prerequisite: API-101 or equivalent.
Students may receive credit for both API-102 and API-110 or API-112 only if API-102 is taken first. API-102B is part of a three course integrated cohort for MPP students interested in the Business and Government Policy (BGP) policy area of concentration. Students who enroll in API-102B must also enroll in API-202B and DPI-201B during the Spring 2015 semester. Participation in this experimental integrated cohort -- which also features co-curricular experiences -- is highly recommended for aspiring BGP concentrators.
