Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
...Arrow and Hahn have provided a definitive analysis (of general equilibrium) that is likely to stand for some years to come ... The book ... is far and away the best and most definitive work on general equilibrium ... It is clearly a must for every economic theorist.

    Rigorous analysis of the foundations of neoclassical microeconomic theory

    Arrow & Hahn remains a classic in its field. It presents a rigorous account of the logical and mathematical foundations of the theory of economic equilibrium. It looks at the assumptions required to prove existence, uniqueness, and stability. The text includes chapters on the relationship between equilibrium and the core (a game-theory concept involving bargaining coalitions), a simple model of out-of-equilibrium trading, and a model with some Keynesian features. This is not an easy book or subject--I read it in grad school in preparation for oral exams in mathematical economics--but it is very clearly written and certainly important.
