1.1 — Choosing in Groups — Class Content

Wednesday, January 26, 2022


Welcome to ECON 410 — Public Economics! Today’s lesson will be an overview of the content and the assignments of the course. Please read and familiarize yourself with the syllabus.

This is not just a “syllabus day,” as we need to hit the ground running, but today will give you a “big picture” look at this semester by reflecting on the overarching question this semester: how do we choose in groups?


Today is introductory, but please heed this timeless message:

Please note going forward, the lesson numbers and topics (e.g. 1.1) on this website are my design, and will not match up with any books!


Below, you can find the slides in two formats. Clicking the image will bring you to the html version of the slides in a new tab. Note while in going through the slides, you can type h to see a special list of viewing options, and type o for an outline view of all the slides.

The lower button will allow you to download a PDF version of the slides. I suggest printing the slides beforehand and using them to take additional notes in class (not everything is in the slides)!
