With a lively, interactive approach, MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS focuses on the kinds of decisions managers face on a daily bases, making it an excellent resource for students pursuing business -- rather than academic -- careers. "Managerial Economics: A Problem Solving Approach is a breath of fresh air. After having taught managerial economics for 20 years, I became dissatisfied with texts that confront students with graphs, economic principles only loosely connntected to business problems, and tedious calculations. I wanted a text that really helps students to see how economic principles could help them solve business problems. This new text does just that."--Ed Millner, Chairman, Department of Economics, Virginia Commonwealth University. "With no experiece in business and no exposure to math since a D in high school trig, I found economics utterly incomprehensible. Then [the text] spoke one sentence to me, ... It all became clear."--PJ O'Rourke, one of America's leading political satirists and best-selling author of Eat the Rich: a Treatise on Economics. "In twenty years, it will be seen as the standard way to teach economics."--Robert Litan, Vice President for Research and Policy at the Kauffman Foundation.
