5.0 von 5 Sternen Big Book, 24. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The critics of this book fail to mention the fact that if you are a graduate economics student you must be able to grasp the mathematical concepts utilized in this book. (Which are not as monstrous as some reviewers seem to think. Real Analysis, for example, is not needed to get through any important chapter). It (this book) may be dense and lacking explanatory power in terms of intuitive statements, but it certainly is the only graduate textbook which could principally be used as a stand-alone text for a complete Micro sequence. For example, Kreps' book treats 3/4 of its relevant material in exercises. Varians' text has even less wording about it than this one. If someone criticises this book on the grounds of its mathematical sophistication he is basically criticising what modern Microeconomics amounts to. As noted by another reviewer the section on Individual Decision Making is fabulous. The same, in my opinion, can be said of the section on General Equilibrium. The Game Theory chapters are very simple, but still concise, likewise the two chapters on Information Economics. Furthermore, there are three very good (but difficult) chapters on Welfare Economics and Incentives, topics hardly treated in any other textbook.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory. (Taschenbuch)
I like the book, it's certainly rigorous and explains the concepts reasonably well, at an advanced level. I have little to add to the other reviewers' comments on that.
I'd like to add that this textbook is definitely the most carefully produced I own. Even though it's in its first ed. there are very few typos. More importantly, the layout is very convincing. Even complex graphs are are clearly and beautifully drawn, the typesetting is 100% consistent throughout the book.
OK, you might say what the heck? But I regrettably have to admit that I currently spend as much time with "MWG" as with my girlfriend. So, I learnt to appreciate that it looks as good as she does (in relative terms: for a book compared to other books as her compared to other women, that is). All of you who still remember Greene's 4th ed (the blue letters...) will agree with me that a well-produced book is something to which some attention should be paid!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Best Micro Graduate Text on the Market, 27. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Mas-Colell et al.'s Micro Theory is the only truly comprehensive graduate text in Microeconomics. I found it dense and unecessarily burdened by set theory when I first attempted reading it in the first year of grad school. Yet by the end of the year I found its level and depth to be just right.
Kreps' Micro Theory is too conversational to be truly considered a graduate text, but it can be a good read at the begining of your first year. Overall, I think Mas Colell is the better book because its treatment has more depth and balance. Mas Colell's other competitor Varian's Micro Analysis sadly falls short on both those categories.
I would only fault Mas Collel et al. for, in many cases, spending half a page defining things in terms of superfluous variables and sets when a two line word definintion would suffice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen IT IS THE BIBLE OF MICROECONOMICS, 17. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The most complete Microeconomics text ever written. One who completes the text (like me) before starting Graduate school, can be guranteed a faculty position at either M.I.T., Chicago, Harvard or Stanford, but nothing less than that, once rest of the Economics Grad School training is built on that foundation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The way a textbook should be., 23. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
After years of the poor, imprecise and bad written Varian's Microeconomic Analysis, the serious reader has an opportunity to have a book that is rigorous, well written, clear, and complete. Of course, a book like this requires some math foundations.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE BEST EVER - rigorous, comprehensive, very clear., 18. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Easily the best micro-text available on the market. The authors have done a great job in explaining the concepts. Following the rigorous mathematical derivations is the economic intuition behind the results. All the assumptions underlying the results are clearly stated. They prove many of their claims. They cover a topic fairly completely unlike Varian who seem to be in hurry to finish off as soon as he has started. Unlike Kreps they don't waste time and space chatting with the reader. Most importantly, investing time and effort solving the exercises gives one great confidence and ability to read research papers in professional journals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best book ever!, 29. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This text is brilliant! Thorough, yet not quite comeplete, the phrase 'this is too adavanced for treatment here,' appeared much too often. However, working through this book offers confidence and courage to the otherwise meek student (just be sure said student doesn't kill herself along the way). Kudos to the authors. Though the typos can make it tricky....

5.0 von 5 Sternen The math is good for you., 21. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
When was the last time you saw a physics textbook that wasn't mathematical?
Without math, they can talk about momentum, black wholes, and relativity they same way that introductory and some intermediate microeconomics textbooks talk about indifference curves and perfect competition. There are many similarly written physics books, but you won't find them being used as textbooks outside courses for freshmen with no intention of majoring in a science.
The thought of a physicist complaining about the math used in their textbook is silly. The thought of a physics grad student complaining is absurd.
In my opinion, the problem here isn't with MWG's Microecononic Theory but with the undergraduate economics curricula at most schools, which leaves students unprepared mathematically and mentally for rigorous graduate level work in economics.
If you wan't a less mathematical treatment there are plenty out there. I'm greatful for a rigourous treatment with a more textbookish and current treatment than in Kreps and a more thorough analysis of both the economic intution and the economic models than Varian.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It is excellent mathematical econimics, 10. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Microeconomic Theory (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Up-to-date economics without math formulae is impossible. I only have looked over the book and find it splendid. Of cause it's too tedium for grandfather but contents background for seriously studing of economics, not in words and curves appeared from somewhere. The book is very good for my students in Belarus (as well in Russia). I suppose American Professors use it too.
