This book presents a scientific and systematic development of the underlying concepts of microeconomics, with due emphasis on analytical and mathematical treatment of the discipline, so that the students develop skills to apply these concepts, in the light of current developments, to real-world problems. The book is organized into four units. The first unit is an introduction to the study of the science of economics. It defines the central problems of economics and outlines the tools to solve them. The students are introduced to the meaning and role of Production Possibility Curves to solve application-oriented problems in economics. The second unit gets students started on the study of microeconomics. It explains interaction of demand and supply curves and concept of equilibrium price. The factors affecting elasticity of demand and supply are discussed. This unit also looks at behaviour of consumers and explains several tools used to analyse demand. The third and fourth units elucidate the factors of production, the theory of costs and revenue, different forms of markets, and price-output determination in competitive markets. Though the book is primarily intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of economics and commerce, it would be immensely useful to management students as well. KEY FEATURES  Over 250 neatly drawn figures to clarify the concepts. Chapter-end summaries as ‘Key Terms and Concepts’ to facilitate quick revision. Chapter-end short and long type questions of numerical and analytical nature with hints and answers as appropriate to probe the student’s understanding of the material covered. Numerous illustrative examples throughout the text to illustrate the application of concepts.  Two case studies to encourage application orientation among the students.

In this novel introduction to modern microeconomic theory, Samuel Bowles returns to the classical economists' interest in the wealth and poverty of nations and people, the workings of the institutions of capitalist economies, and the coevolution of individual preferences and the structures of markets, firms, and other institutions. Using recent advances in evolutionary game theory, contract theory, behavioral experiments, and the modeling of dynamic processes, he develops a theory of how economic institutions shape individual behavior, and how institutions evolve due to individual actions, technological change, and chance events. Topics addressed include institutional innovation, social preferences, nonmarket social interactions, social capital, equilibrium unemployment, credit constraints, economic power, generalized increasing returns, disequilibrium outcomes, and path dependency. Each chapter is introduced by empirical puzzles or historical episodes illuminated by the modeling that follows, and the book closes with sets of problems to be solved by readers seeking to improve their mathematical modeling skills. Complementing standard mathematical analysis are agent-based computer simulations of complex evolving systems that are available online so that readers can experiment with the models. Bowles concludes with the time-honored challenge of "getting the rules right," providing an evaluation of markets, states, and communities as contrasting and yet sometimes synergistic structures of governance. Must reading for students and scholars not only in economics but across the behavioral sciences, this engagingly written and compelling exposition of the new microeconomics moves the field beyond the conventional models of prices and markets toward a more accurate and policy-relevant portrayal of human social behavior.
