From the Inside Flap:

Markets are all around us, they lie at the center of our economiclives and tie people, countries, and even the world together in oneglobal economy. Yet understanding them, especially on the "micro"level, can be difficult—unless you have the proper guidance.That's why author Robert Schwartz has created Micro Markets: AMarket Structure Approach to Microeconomic Analysis.

Filled with in-depth analysis, this reliable resource bridgesthe gap between theory and practice by defining microeconomics interms of real-world market operations. And while the focus is onmicro markets, the subject is clearly microeconomic theory.

Page by page, this book illustrates how microeconomic theory isa powerful paradigm that provides insights into how micro marketsoperate and offers an excellent set of tools for understanding theforces that drive production and consumption decisions, as well asthe level of economic efficiency that markets, and the peopleoperating in them, can achieve. Schwartz sets forth an effectiveanalysis with regard to broadly defined, abstract resources andturns to the equities markets as a consistent, thematic applicationof microeconomic theory.

Other important issues addressed include:

  • How can market frictions—such as transaction costs,blockages, risks, uncertainties, imperfect knowledge, and otherimpediments—affect market outcomes?

  • Do micro markets have the ability to efficiently service ourneeds in a free market setting?

  • How can a firm's output be set, an individual's consumption orasset holdings determined, or a product's price established?

  • What's the appropriate balance between free market competitionand government intervention?

  • And much more!

And to further enhance your understanding of the tools andtechniques presented here, Micro Markets Workbook by RobertSchwartz, Michael Carew, and Tatiana Maksimenko—an essentialstudy guide that contains challenging questions (and answers)related to the concepts developed here—is also available.

Markets are complex and the forces that impact them areintricate. But by taking the microeconomic theory discussed hereand applying it to your own endeavors, you'll gain a betterperspective of the individual markets that comprise a broadeconomy.

To gain hands-on experience with trading in the equity markets,don't forget to pick up Mastering the Art of Equity Trading ThroughSimulation + Web-Based Software: The TraderEx Course, by RobertSchwartz, Gregory Sipress, and Bruce Weber.
