In this course the students will learn how to use the methods of microeconomic analysis for understanding the key properties of health care markets, the conditions under which these markets can and cannot function efficiently, and to economically evaluate policies designed to improve functioning of these markets in a variety of health care systems. The course will use the insights from many fields of economics, such as public economics, labour economics, industrial organisation, behavioural economics and econometrics to analyse incentives, behaviour and interactions of key participants in the health care markets and the effects of government policies on these behaviours.

The course officially counts into the academic year 2019/2020, will be taught on September 23-25, 2019, 9:30-12:20 h, room 314.
