Summer School: Markets and Governments – a Theoretical Appraisal

ECONtribute and the Center for Economic and International Studies (CEIS) at the University of Rome cordially invite to the Summer School: Markets and Governments – a Theoretical Appraisal. The summer school proposes to reexamine a very classic theme in economic thought, the tension between markets and governments, from the perspective of contemporary economic theory.

PROGRAM

The school is organised over four days. Each morning is devoted to lectures. Afternoons will feature presentations of alternative perspectives, from the viewpoint of the structure of property rights, taxation regimes, social justice. No background is required, although familiarity with analytical reasoning may help.
