Some of the most interesting and challenging issues in public economics are inherently dynamic in nature:
Should we tax capital and, if so, how much?
At what rate should we discount the costs and benefits of future public goods?
How can we ensure a viable social security system?
What can we do to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change?
All these questions---and many others---will be addressed in the course of the summer school.
