Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book uses in contrast to other books of that topic only a little math (just like Mankiws' Macroeconomics). Varian uses a very understandable language and is always straight to the point although at some points I miss a little more depth in his explanations.
All in all can this book be regarded as the "Masterpiece" among other just average microeconomic books.

8 von 15 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Professor Joseph L. McCauley am 20. Dezember 2003
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A very well-written introduction to the theory of neo-classical economic belief. States the (nonempirical) postulates explicitly (excepting the postulate of stability), illustrates how this leads to the prediction that regulations reduce efficiency, discusses game theory, law and econ, IT, and assymetric information. See my review of Microeconomics by the same author. Note also that, as in Microeconomics, there is no discussion of real empirical data. With only three exceptions there are no graphs obtained from real market data in Intermediate Microeconomics. Also, no mention of Radner's proof that equilibria make demands of information acquisition and processing on agents that cannot be met even by a Turing machine. Also, no discussion of the fact that (a) financial market data indicate stochastic dynamic models that have no equilibria either dynamically or statistically, and (b) when equilibria do occur in stochastic models of financial markets, then they are unstable (financial markets are not discussed in the text aside from the CAPM: there is no demand for liquidity in neo-classical economic theory, money is unnecessary, as is the Fed). The student should keep in mind that this is an already-falsified theory (a belief system) that does not describe how any market works in reality. In order to understand where and why this text goes wrong, read mirowski's Machine Dreams'.

It's the economics, stupid 16. Februar 2004
Von Stephen Turnbull - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Sorry about the epithet, but in the election season, I couldn't resist! The book's detractors (relatively speaking) obviously aren't "stupid", but they do miss the point---which Varian tries to explain in the preface. So let's try a different tack. Today writing a computer program to do the math used in graduate economics is an undergraduate CS project. Let's let computers do the heavy lifting, and save people for the creative work.
That's what Varian is about. What the world needs is not more people who can manipulate derivatives of implicit functions, but more people who can connect data and stylized facts to appropriate (already known) theories. That's what this book tries to teach, and it is best of breed. Although it's not clear to me that "thinking like an economist" can be taught with great effectiveness (it's a "knack", not an algorithm), Varian over and over again demonstrates that he can clearly express the "inner working" of that mode of thought. As in Information Rules, he demonstrates that he can bring these ideas to those who are not going to be professional economists, but need to understand the analysis.
Of course, some in the audience for this book will make careers in which they seek, and find, data and facts that defy existing theory. For them, of course there are better ways to prepare for the technical prerequisites for graduate school. But years later, none of those books will be nearly as much help in avoiding a dissertation proposal that crumbles into dust, too dry to support itself.
Belongs with Samuelson's classic introductory text on your bookshelf.

Excellent microeconomics book, but falls short on math. 1. Juni 2004
Von Chris Bolts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is an excellent bridge from principles of microeconomics. However, while I am very good at applied economics, it falls short on explaining the mathematical concepts it introduces in the appendices. The most calculus I've had experience with is Brief calculus, but if you are to understand the equations in the appendices you'll need a little more calculus (unless you're born a math genius). The theories introduced in the book are clear and precise and make for easy reading and studying. If you want more concise understanding of the concepts, then I highly recommend purchasing the companion workbook.

Very conceptual! 11. Januar 2006
Von Samia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a Public Policy student at the University of Chicago and used this book for an introductory Microeconomics course. Varian explains the concepts of Microeconomics well. Many of the previous reviews state that the book does not have many mathematical examples or questions. This is because there is a supplementary workbook that addresses only the math. (My professor assigned weekly problem sets based on the workbook problems.) By the end of the course, I felt that I understood the concepts and had a good foundation for future coursework. I believe this is very important for anyone who plans to take more Economics courses.

This book is considered the standard in the field of Economics. I recommend this book if you want to understand the concepts instead of just number crunching.

Only for basic economics 14. Oktober 2003
Von "mexicaninscotland" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is what I call "literary economics"; there is very little mathematical explination, which is good for students in the usual 100/200 level economics courses, but completely useless afterwords. I was assigned to read this in my junior year, and after the first ten chapters, reverted to another book, called 'MicrcoEconomics with Calculus'. I do not believe that the professors who recommend this book for juniors (or God forbid, seniors) have actually looked in it, for the math proofs are few and far between, and fairly simple. However, for Freshman/Sophomores, I recommend it; it is a good base of theory, from which you can (if you wish) continue later on with math proofs, which are vital for higher level economics.
If you are in an advanced course and need help with math, I cannot recommend Alpha Chiang's 'Fundamental Methods of Mathematical Eocnomics' high enough. This book was a God-send to a economics student who needed to bring his understanding up quickly. Thank you, Alpha.

Expect to need some back-up ... 21. Oktober 2003
Von Streakblondie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am using this book at the moment for an undergraduate intermediate microeconomics course ...
The text is quite verbose, and it really requires reading twice in some parts to pick out what you really need! I suggest having some mathematic text books with lots of economic examples, as a back-up ... this is because I feel the examples in the book are hard to use, in the sense that you are learning something new and the examples are not straight-forward, so make the concepts hard to pick up in some parts of the book.
However, microeconomics is a huge subject and I wouldn't expect any one book to cover everything .... so expect to do some further reading to "catch" all concepts and get a good understanding of all the topics.
Overall, the book covers what you need to know ...
