"An extremely impressive synthesis of the ideas that make up modern contract theory. It will undoubtedly be the definitive text on the topic for many years to come."--Oliver Hart, Andrew E. Furer Professor of Economics, Harvard University ' Contract Theory is certainly the most important textbook on the frontiers of microeconomics since Tirole's celebrated Theory of Industrial Organization. Bolton and Dewatripont have done a marvelous job of providing an exhaustive account of the field, using only very simple and self-contained models and relying on a whole battery of economic applications. All this contributes to making the book not only the unavoidable teaching and research reference on contract theory, but also a unique tribute to economics at its best.' Philippe Aghion , Department of Economics, Harvard University "Barter is the oldest form of economic exchange, but, in the modern world, it has largely been superseded by monetary and credit transactions. Nevertheless, Dalia Marin and Monika Schnitzer make a compelling and intriguing case that, if planned with care, barter can play a valuable role in both international trade and transitional economies."--Eric S. Maskin, A.O. Hirschman Professor of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study "Herve Moulin is one of the deepest thinkers in welfare economics. His book on fair division is an elegant overview of modern contributions to an ancient problem."--Eric S. Maskin, A.O. Hirschman Professor of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study "Evans and Schmalensee's *Paying with Plastic* provides a rigorous analysis and deep insights about the payment card industry's fascinating institutional features. This book will appeal not only to policy-makers and business executives, but also to the theoretically inclined economist. The second edition incorporates much new material, including recent advances to two-sided market economics (to which the authors have made substantial contributions). A remarkable achievement."--Jean Tirole, Institut d'Economie Industrielle, University of ToulousePlease note: This new quote arrived too late for the jacket, so the first quote will be used there. This version should be used for all other purposes. Thanks! "This is as edifying a course on contract theory as a primer could ever hope to be -- the little book that could."--Bengt Holmstrom, Paul A. Samuelson Professor of Economics, MITPlease note: Arrived too late to appear on book jacket. "Google, eBay, mobile phones, and the Xbox have a lot more in common that you might suspect. *Invisible Engines* builds on recent thinking about two-sided platforms, including the authors' substantial contributions to it. Evans, Hagiu and Schmalensee beautifully blend economics, history, and business analysis to shed light on how businesses and policy makers should design their strategies. This exciting book will be a key resource for practitioners and academics interested in knowing how software platforms work and where information technologies are heading."--Jean Tirole, Institut d'Economie Industrielle, University of Toulouse "*Invisible Engines* describes the economics of operating systems, those fiendishly complex pieces of software that provide the nervous system for computers, cell phones, game consoles, and a host of other devices. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the economic forces that drive high-tech industries."--Hal Varian, Haas School of Business and Department of Economics, University of California, Berkeley

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Although on the backcover some Authors say how well and how easy this book is written I have found it to be unnecessarily difficult from the mathematical point of view as well as the English language used to explain the concepts.

First the Maths:

They often use a lot of Maths instead of explaining it in words. It is beautiful to have a lot of formulas but it would be even better to have some explanation. You lose a lot of time to understand concepts where a simple sentence whould have been enough to check it much faster.

The layout:

May in itself be a reason not to buy the book. It is very difficult to read through the book because in a sentence they put 3 or 4 formulas without even taking a new line...

To sum it up:

From the economic point of view and if you are interested in the models and how they came about it is a great book. For students who wish to understand the intuiton or to have great examples (like in varian's, mankiw's books) it is not because you take a lot of time to digest mathematic formulas instead of getting the intuition...

It was well received, quickly and perfectly packed. Excellent service.

The Best Book on Contract Theory 8. Januar 2005
Von Sameer Mathur - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
We used selected parts of a preview version of this book at Carnegie Mellon in Fall 2004. This book is the best - better than Salanie's primer, which I am familar with in depth and also better than Laffont's Theory of Incentives, which I am familar with in parts.

The authors do a brilliant job of synthesizing hard to read Econometrica, JET, AER, QJE, articles down to key insights and managable proportions. They present results in a manner a graduate student can have a shot at understanding.

They discuss the expected topics - Adverse Selection and Moral Hazard; Screening, Signaling, Auctions. They do a particularly good job of explaining Adverse Selection and Moral Hazard in a dynamic framework.

This is hard material, certainly not trivial reading. You need some prior background in Microeconomic Theory of the level of Mas Collel / Reny and Jehle / Kreps and Game Theory of the level of Osbourne & Rubenstein / Fudenberg & Tirole. You also need to be a self-absorbed academic - ideally an enthusiastic and masochistic graduate student in Economics or closely related discipline. None of these books are of any damned use in the "real" world.

Exceptional 18. Februar 2005
Von Sang Kim - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Despite more than 20 years of research there are not many books out there on contract theory. Laffont & Martimort and Salanie are perhaps the most widely read ones. What distinguishes this book from others is its comprehence coverage of modern contract theory: unlike the others, it allocates sizable portions on multilateral/multiagent/dynamic/incomplete frameworks, which until now only had to be learned by reading journal articles. This book picks out the most important and influential models and present them in depth, while not losing sight of other streams of literature. My only complaint is the book is not exactly user-friendly in some places. I had to spend quite a bit of time trying to figure out some missing steps in derivations. Usually these were resolved in second reading, so it is not a major issue (reminded me of reading quantum mechanics...) The benefit of having a single definitive source of modern contract theory (as opposed to flipping through hundreds of journal articles) is enormous for a student like me who is new to the subject. I suggest reading Salanie along with it. Salanie is more readable and short, and these two complement each other very well.

A fun book to read for laymen in contract theory. No modern methodology is included in the book tho.

It's a good book! 2. Mai 2008
Von W. Lian - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is strongly recommended by our professor. I read some chapters and find it very clear. It does not over-use math, but empahsize the intuition of contract theory.
