Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course description:
• This seminar is for master students in Economics, Philosophy and Economics, and Business ,and covers selected topics in economic policy and firm ownership. Students taking this course should get an overview about the role of the state as a firm owner. We discuss competition as regulator, when it fails, industry regulation and different forms of state ownership.
• We analyse the role of the state as owner of business enterprises by providing an overview of the main aspects in industrial and regulatory economics. We also give an assessment of state ownership according to different schools of thought. We then discuss the role and the economic policy approach of various state holdings or sovereign wealth funds and distinguish between entrepreneurial holdings and financial holdings. Regulatory issues and conflicts of interest will be examined using the ÖBAG holdings and other regulated industries as well as state ownership in the crisis as case studies. At the end of the seminar, students should have a comprehensive overview of the state as an entrepreneurial actor and the issues involved, as well as a detailed knowledge of the macroeconomic, economic policy and legal foundations of the Austrian state holding ÖBAG.

Topics for presentations will be announced in moodle.

Teaching approach:
• Introductory lectures, literature work, case studies, field trip, seminar papers, presentations.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Grading
• Students are required to do one (group) presentation of a topic (30%), write a term paper (30%), submit a concept for the term paper and the presentation, and participate actively in class (30%).
• For each of these three components, students can receive between 0 and 100 points. The final number of points is the weighted sum of the three components rounded to one digit.
• To receive a positive grade, the final number of points has then to be at least 50.1. The grade is 1 (2, 3, 4 and 5), if the final number of points is 87.6-100 (75.1-87.5, 62.6-75, 50.1-62.5 and 0-50).
