This new intermediate microeconomics text blends conventional topic coverage, recent developments in microeconomic theory and material that explores a broader conception of rational economic decision-making behaviour. The book covers all the analytical tools students should learn, while developing their economic intuition; at the same time the book presents core microeconomic theory in a careful and patient manner using simple examples. It is equally suitable for undergraduate microeconomic theory courses at the intermediate level, or MBA course in microeconomics. Special features of the text include applications and examples; coverage of elasticity and its applications to demand theory, as well as the average-marginal distinction in production theory; new topics, such as the economics of price discrimination, a spatial model of monopolistic competition, a careful introduction to game theory and strategic behaviour, and the policy implications of the modern theory of monopoly; and a chapter, "Beyond Self-Interest?", that relates ethics and economics.

About the Author:

Robert H. Frank received his B.S. in mathematics from Georgia Tech in 1966, then taught math and science for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Nepal. He received his M.A. in statistics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1971, and his Ph.D. in economics in 1972, also from U.C. Berkeley. He is the Goldwin Smith Professor of Economics at Cornell University, where he has taught since 1972 and where he currently holds a joint appointment in the department of economics and the Johnson Graduate School of Management. During leaves of absence from Cornell, he served as chief economist for the Civil Aeronautics Board from 1978 to 1980 and was a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in 1992-93. He has published on a variety of subjects, including price and wage discrimination, public utility pricing, the measurement of unemployment spell lengths, and the distributional consequences of direct foreign investment. For the past several years, his research has focused on rivalry and cooperation in economic and social behavior. His books on these themes include Choosing the Right Pond: Human Behavior and the Quest for Status (Oxford University Press, 1985) and Passions Within Reason: The Strategic Role of the Emotions (W.W. Norton, 1988). He and Philip Cook are co-authors of The Winner-Take-All Society (The Free Press, 1995) , which received a Critic’s Choice Award and appeared on both the New York Times Notable Books list and Business Week Ten Best list for 1995. His most recent general interest publication is Luxury Fever (The Free Press, 1999). Professor Frank’s books have been translated into eight languages. He has been awarded an Andrew W. Mellon Professorship (1987 – 1990), a Kenan Enterprise Award (1993), and a Merrill Scholars Program Outstanding Educator Citation (1991).
