Most of the topics in the course are covered by Economics of the Public Sector, Norton, by Joseph E Stiglitz, which is the suggested reference. An alternative text is Public Finance, Global Edition, by Harvey Rosen and Ted Gayer. The part focusing on the environment as a global problem follows the discussions that can be found in Global Carbon Pricing—The Path to Climate Cooperation (edited by David JC MacKay, Axel Ockenfels and Steven Stoft), MIT Press, 2017. We may also review readings from Stavins, R. N., ed. Economics of the Environment: Selected Readings, Sixth Edition. New York, New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2012.
