Course description

Principles of microeconomics

The aim of the course is to give students a comprehensive view of the problems related to the taxation of capital income. The taxation of capital will be studied from two different perspectives: from the Treasury’s perspective, which aims at collecting revenue in an efficient and equitable way, and from the taxpayer’s perspective, which tries to minimize the burden of taxes.

Students will develop a foundation for understanding the effects of taxes on consumers’ and firms’ choices, and for evaluating the ensuing impact on market outcome. They will also be able to understand the basic tax planning strategies both in domestic and international markets.

Traditional lectures

Written exam (multiple choices, exercises and open questions) and optional oral exam and/or short essay.
