The course examines policy options, with their strategic trade-offs and operational implications, for the design and implementation of public sector roles and public interventions in an economy. The first part focuses on the public resource mobilization via three main sources including taxes, user charges and borrowing. The second part introduces the rationale for the public sector intervention, ways to correct market failures in a complete spectrum including: public sector production and provision, state-owned enterprises, private sector participation or public private partnership, and regulation. The final part looks at the roles of different government levels and intergovernmental relations.
