9780745014661: Introduction to Microeconomics

Covering recent theoretical developments in industrial organization and public choice theory, this is a complete textbook for intermediate microeconomics courses. The mathematical development of results lends vigour to its traditional strength: verbal and geometric presentation of key concepts. The clarity and brevity of exposition that made the book popular have been retained.

From the Back Cover:

Your complete textbook of Microeconomic principles, theory and application

This new edition builds a comprehensive picture of the microeconomic tools required to solve a wide range of problems by using an innovative combination of written, illustrative and mathematical analysis.  It helps the reader to think like an economist - in particular demonstrating how individuals, firms and policy-makers decide their best course of action.

Microeconomics is all new:

  • New Content detailed discussions of choice in the face of risk; corporate governance; game theory; and the economics of information.
  • New Feature Boxes of worked examples develop key ideas in the text and so bridge the gap between less formal presentation and mathematical analysis.
  • New Structure Streamlined and modernised into eight balanced parts, the book has been reorganised to place valuable emphasis on evolving areas of the subject, whilst retaining core topics standard to microeconomic courses.

Saul Estrin is a Professor of Management and Head of the Department of Management at The London School of Economics and Political Science.

David Laidler is Fellow in Residence at the C. D. Howe Institute in Toronto and Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Western Ontario.

Mike Dietrich is a Senior Lecturer in Economics at Sheffield University

Microeconomics caters for all students studying the subject, challenging the most able reader whilst leaving no student behind.
