Directed primarily toward undergraduate/MBA students in Economics, this text also provides practical content to current and aspiring industry professionals.
This text will excite readers by providing a more linear progression, while proving the consistency and relevance of microeconomic theory.
The Seventh Edition welcomes a new co-author, Stephen Erfle of Dickinson College, who has contributed many revisions and improvements to the quantitative sections of the text, as well as provided a major addition: the use of Excel in the presentation of many of the numerical and graphical illustrations presented throughout the text.
To strengthen readers’ ability to use Excel—a critical skill in today’s job market–new Excel Applications (Excel Apps) allow readers to turn the static figures and tables in the text into dynamic illustrations.

Stephen E. Erfle began his career as a managerial economist during a 1994—1995 sabbatical at Seagram Classics Wine Company (SCWC). During those fourteen months, he maintained offices at Sterling Vineyards and at Mumm Cuvée Napa, where, respectively, the finance and marketing departments of SCWC resided. Trained as a microeconomic theorist, he began to use his economist’s toolkit to analyze concrete business questions, such as, Should Mumm raise the price of Brut Prestige a dollar a bottle? When does it make sense to have another tasting room associate on the floor in Sterling’s tasting room?
On returning to Dickinson College, Dr. Erfle decided to refocus his teaching in a more applied direction. He helped found the International Business and Management department and major during the late 1990s. One of the core courses in that major is his course, Managerial Economics, which uses Excel as a teaching platform. This course is modeled after what he did during his SCWC sabbatical. In the past fifteen years, he has taught more than a thousand undergraduates how to build economic models in order to do comparative statics analysis and how to do regression modeling in Excel.
Dr. Erfle received a B.S. in mathematics and B.A. in economics from the University of California, Davis, and a master’s and Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University. He has also taught in the Economics Department at Dickinson College and in the School of Social Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. He is also involved in wine education; he has taught wine-tasting classes and conducted wine tastings since his graduate school days as the resident economics and wine tutor for Harvard’s Leverett House.
