Obiettivi formativi

The course provides an overview of how models from general microeconomic theory can be used to understand the main issues in environmental and health economics. It will investigate the economic determinants and implications of the current environmental and health challenges. At the end of the course students should be able to: - assess the strengths and weaknesses of alternative environmental policies with real world examples from developing and developed countries, - interpret the main economic issues relevant for modern health care systems: efficiency, equity, sustainability, - understand how analytical models can be used for the assessment of the evolution of variables of interest in both health and environmental economics and for the economic evaluation of market innovations and policies - gain basic ability on the use of appropriate software to solve relevant problems in health and environmental economics
