Overview

The long-awaited second edition of an important textbook on economic growth—a major revision incorporating the most recent work on the subject.

"*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 ofEconomics, Harvard University
