at SPA 1, room 203, Individual dates are held in room 25 (PC-Pool)
Description:

This course provides a rigorous review of basic linear regression and techniques both for cross-sectional and panel applications. The course then covers further topics which are important in applied econometric analysis based on individual level data and longitudinal data. These topics include a discussion of the asymptotic theory for nonlinear estimation techniques (MLE, Nonlinear Least Squares), discrete choice models, limited dependent variables models, and linear quantile regressions. The course provides an up-to-date treat¬ment at the level of Wooldridge's textbook on “Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data”. The course will regularly discuss the causal interpretation of econometric estimates. The focus of the course is both on understanding the methodological concepts and on how to apply them. Students will learn to implement the estimation methods using the econometric package Stata.

Description:

The intention of the course is to familiarize students with the standard tool of modern economic theory and to train them in applying these tools to actual economic problems. It is particularly devoted to market failures and welfare economics. The first part (Part III in MWG) outlines properties of competetive markets and welfare analysis in a partial equilibrium context. It then focuses on the three classical contidions under which market outcomes lead to an inefficient allocation of resources: externalities, imperfect competition and asymmetric information. The second part (Part V in MWG) addresses fundamental issues of welfare economics from the perspective of a policy maker who desingns and implements collective decisions. It focuses in particular on social choice theory, the foundations of bargaining and welfare economics, and mechanism design. The course addresses these issue both from a positive and normative perspective.
