COLLECTIVE ACTION ECONOMICS
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Acquire analytical and planning capabilities geared at the solution of social dilemmas in economic spheres.
Course contents summary
The aim of the course is to analyse the possibilities and difficulties of cooperation between individuals and between organisations (firms). Literature on this theme has highlighted, together with the advantages, the constraints to implementing and consolidating collective action solutions. The course will therefore analyse the factors affecting the level of benefits to be obtained from cooperation, the variables impacting the costs (of coordination and adjustment) and the conditions favouring the spreading of sectoral and national cooperation.
