Controversies in Public Policy: Logic and Evidence

PREREQUISITE: POL-UA 850.

Pre-reqs: POL-UA 800, 850 or equiv

This course is about using logic to think about issues of public policy and evidence to do the same thing. One way to think about this course is it is sabermetrics (logic and evidence applied to baseball, and in Moneyball) applied to vastly more important topics than baseball: making schools better, designing health policy and dealing with climate change (with tons of other policy applications possible, but we will focus on these three).
