Course Description

How do different countries address social and economic problems? What accounts for differences in public policies, policy outputs, and policy outcomes? For example, why do people in some countries pay more for health care than others? Why have societies responded differently to pressures of increased immigration? What is the relationship between national ideologies and policies to address climate change? These are just some of the questions to be addressed in this course as we compare policy choices in the United States with those in other countries. Students studying political science, economics, public affairs, sociology, and other areas will find this course of interest.
