Overview

Over the past twenty years, the study of industrial organization--the analysis of imperfectly competitive markets--has grown from a niche area of microeconomics to a key component of economics and of related disciplines such as finance, strategy, and marketing. This book provides an issue-driven introduction to industrial organization. It includes a vast array of examples, from both within and outside the United States. While formal in its approach, the book is written in a way that requires only basic mathematical training. Supplemental materials posted on the Web make more extensive use of algebra and calculus.

    Too mundane

    This is suppose to be an introduction to industrial organization, but instead turns out to be a summary type of a book. If you are a college student in the field of business, I recommend that you take good notes in class because this text is of no measurable aid. In particular when you are studying game theory, this text just browses at the topic and does not get at the heart of the matter. All in all, forego this book.
