Public economics is the study of government policy from the lens of economic efficiency and equity. Government sets rule of Law, enforce property rights and creates conducive environment for the smooth and efficient functioning of market.
In addition to this, free market fails to deliver the efficient outcomes and social justice spontaneously and hence arise the rationale for government intervention to correct the market distortions.
The sheer extent , scope and cost of the government intervention in society, the economy and world affairs makes the study of public economics essential to keep the culture of democracy vibrant. There is dearth of certificate courses on public economics in India.
