Course Description Health economics is an expansive and growing field within the larger microeconomic literature.  From examining the impact of Medicaid on health care utilization to the public health consequences of marijuana legalization, health economics offers a variety of profound economic insights and policy recommendations.  This course uses many familiar concepts from microeconomic theory and econometrics in order to better understand health and healthcare—with students engaging economic models describing the demand for health, addiction, medical care, health insurance, and risky behaviors in addition to interpreting important empirical evidence within these spaces.
