DescriptionMicroeconomic Theory is a modern treatment of the neoclassical paradigm which is essential for understanding microeconomics. The author has carefully applied this theory in a non-mathematical and intuitive way. The special features include: * emphasis on the nature of the neoclassical paradigm * introduction to game theory * minimal mathematical content * intuitive exercises and examples * written in a concise format This book is one of the more simple yet focused texts available for Microeconomic theory. It is geared for first year graduate students of economics.
