For courses in Managerial Economics.

 

A Problem-based Approach that Uses Modern Theories and Real-world Examples

Managerial Economics and Strategy uses real-­world issues and examples to illustrate how economic principles impact business decisions. Emphases on agency and contract theory, managerial behavioral economics, game theory, and pricing are especially valuable to future managers. In-text examples and boxed mini­-cases use actual data to illustrate the use of basic economic models, while Q&As pose important managerial or economic problems and demonstrate a step-by-step approach to solving them.

 

The Second Edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect new supply-and-demand curves and include discussions of corporate social responsibility, opportunistic behavior, and innovation. It also features new learning objectives, examples, end-of-chapter questions, and spreadsheet exercises.

Product Description:

Intended primarily for Managerial Economics courses, this text also provides practical content to current and aspiring industry professionals.

 

Economics is a powerful tool that can help managers to manage effectively. In Managerial Economics Jeffrey Perloff and James Brander use real-world issues and examples from actual markets to show future managers how economic principles can be used in business decisions.

 

In text examples and boxed mini-cases use actual data to illustrate how to use basic models. For example, to illustrate rivalry in oligopolistic markets, the authors look at rivalry between United and American Airlines and between Coke and Pepsi. Mini-case examples include why American Apparel is vertically integrated and why upscale manufacturers limit the number of designer hand-bags a customer is allowed to buy.

 

To help future managers learn to solve new problems, Perloff and Brander repeatedly demonstrate problem-solving through in-text Q&As. Each Q&A poses an important managerial or economic issue and demonstrates how to solve it using a step-by-step approach.
