Public Policy: Social Economic and Foreign Policies
Public policy puts laws into action. The executive branch directs the combined activities of the federal government to address a multitude of problems from the environment to the economy. The policies of the United States affect social issues economic growth taxes regulation and foreign affairs. This course will take a broad view of public policy in America but will use specific examples such as the 2008 economic downturn and climate change to illustrate the wide-ranging effects of those policies.
