McGuigan, Moyer, and Harris covers quantitative issues that I want to include (demand elasticity estimation, forecasting), and it pushes the envelope of the topics in managerial economics by featuring asymmetric information and strategic behavior....I will continue to use the book as it brings in strategic issues facing firms, and present the competence and clarity market structures, pricing issues, and best practices.
The concepts are presented in a very clear manner and the authors have done an excellent job in gathering real-world applications of the theory. In fact, it is because of all of the practical applications and examples used by the authors that I adopted the book for use in my MBA managerial economics course.... The applications are the strong point of this text and the reason I use it.
In the past five years I have used [this] text. I consider it to be the best managerial text available today. It has the best PowerPoint presentation of an economics text that I have seen, excellent problems at the end of each chapter, and is current and comprehensive in topics covered.
