Microeconomics for MBAs
The Economic Way of Thinking for Managers
Richard B. McKenzie University of California
and Dwight R. Lee
Southern Methodist University
McKenzie and Lee continue to present microeconomics in a sophisticated, yet nontechnical and easy to understand way, with a heavy emphasis on real-world business issues that will hold student interest because of the relevancy of the material to business students’ career goals. • Written to meet the needs of MBA and business students, presents management and economics as equal elements and shows how economics is part of everyday thinking for business people • The textbook package includes fifty-eight video tutorials – already viewed over a million times on YouTube – covering key concepts and complex arguments, and topics likely to be assessed in exams
The McKenzie/Lee text is the best book in its field, both for coverage and readability. The text is an excellent example of how microeconomic analysis can be applied to real world managerial decisions. The writing style will delight students and make the instructor’s interaction with students much richer.” Barry Keating, University of Notre Dame
• Theory and mathematics are kept as simple as possible and are illustrated with real-world problems so that they are accessible and relevant to all MBA and business students

Theory of Social Choice on Networks Preference, Aggregation, and Coordination
Wynn C. Stirling Brigham Young University, UTAH
Classical social choice theory relies heavily on the assumption that all individuals have fixed preference orderings. This highly original book presents a new theory of social preferences that explicitly accounts for important social phenomena such as coordination, compromise, negotiation and altruism. Drawing on cybernetics and network theory, it extends classical social choice theory by constructing a framework that allows for dynamic preferences that are modulated by the situation-dependent social influence that they exert on each other. • The concept of aggregation is expanded to generate a comprehensive social model that provides a complete characterization of the complex social structure • Extends social choice to influence networks, which are expressed as directed graphs whose vertices are individuals and whose edges constitute the medium by which social influence is propagated between individuals

Modeling Monetary Economies Bruce Champ Scott Freeman and Joseph Haslag Designed to be used in advanced undergraduate or master’s courses in monetary economics, money and banking, international economics, or macroeconomics, this new edition builds on a simple, clear monetary model and applies this framework consistently to explain trade, finance, modern banking, and crises in complex modern economies. • Simplifies the economy by starting with two markets in general equilibrium, and students can develop comfort with two markets, then extend the structure by adding an additional market as needed • Shows where calculus could be used, but focuses on budget constraints and requires students to apply substitution method • Events like the 2007–8 Financial Crisis (Great Recession) are analyzed in the context of the model economy, therefore allowing students to see the fundamental economic trade-offs
This is my favourite textbook for my undergraduate course in monetary economics. It requires only a small investment in order to familiarize the students with the overlapping generations model. Thereafter, the book covers a broad set of topics by building simple extensions of the basic model. My students love it and I can also highly recommend it to any reader interested in money, banking, and monetary policy.” Aleksander Berentsen, University of Basel, Switzerland

MACROECONOMICS 2ND EDITION
Principles of Financial Economics Stephen F. LeRoy University of California
and Jan Werner University of Minnesota
This new edition provides a rigorous yet accessible graduate-level introduction to financial economics, retaining its emphasis on the link between financial economics and equilibrium theory.

New chapters address infinite-time security markets, exploring, among other topics, the possibility of price bubbles. • Stresses the link between financial economics and equilibrium theory
With this new edition, LeRoy and Werner have solidified the standing of their Principles of Financial Economics as the ideal introduction to neoclassical asset pricing models. The coverage is authoritative, rigorous, elegant, and now even more comprehensive.”
Darrell Duffie, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, California

Dynamic Economic Analysis Deterministic Models in Discrete Time
Gerhard Sorger University of Vienna
For advanced students in economics, this textbook provides a clear and concise introduction to dynamic economic theory and analysis. Sorger guides students step-by-step through the most popular model structures and solution concepts, from the simplest dynamic economic models to complex problems of dynamic general equilibrium frameworks. • Analysis is demonstrated through 75 worked examples that offer step-by-step solutions to the models • A further 64 exercises allow students to self-assess their understanding, with solutions (password-protected) available online for instructors • Focuses purely on deterministic models in discrete time and avoids the more complicated stochastic and continuous-time models that students find confusing
This book offers a comprehensive vision of economic dynamics suitable for graduate students and professionals alike. Gerhard Sorger is a leading researcher with a flair for presenting mathematically challenging theories carefully and rigorously. …There is no other single book readily accessible in the economics literature covering the same wide range of deterministic dynamics and optimization theories with detailed illustrations of those theories in action. It is accessible to students engaged in a self-study program for students engaging with dynamical systems for the first time. Better yet, it offers the topics and treatments for a course in dynamics.” Robert A. Becker, Indiana University, Bloomington

Financial Markets and Institutions A European Perspective
Jakob de Haan
University of Groningen
Ministry of Finance, The Netherlands
and Dirk Schoenmaker Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam
Written for undergraduate and graduate students of finance, economics and business, this successful textbook examines and explains financial markets, infrastructures and institutions from a European perspective. The third edition features greater discussion of the financial and Euro crises and provides wider international coverage of countries outside the European Union. • The text is clearly signposted and presented with learning objectives, boxes for key concepts and theories, end-of-chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading • A companion website features exercises for students, and password-protected figures, tables, solutions and PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors • Covers both European and national financial systems, leading students to a deep understanding of integrated and non-integrated markets
A quarter of a century ago, the European financial system consisted of segmented national markets and institutions. The process of creating a single unified system has made considerable progress but still has some way to go. This book provides an excellent account of why this process is important, the current situation, and how it will proceed in the future. It is very well suited for its target audience of advanced undergraduates and Masters students and will be useful to all those interested in the topic. I highly recommend it.”

This is a clear, comprehensive and incisive look at Europe today and its relevance to global business in the twenty-first century. The author is both eloquent in explaining even the more difficult concepts and judicious in forming conclusions about where Europe stands today in the globalized world. He lucidly explains the leading scholarship in the field and, as importantly, pinpoints its relevance to on-the-ground business practice within the European context. This book will be of great interest to academics, researchers and global business practitioners. It should become the standard textbook for students of modern European business.” Sanford L.
