Overview

Microeconomic Analysis has been a fixture of graduate programs in economics for fifteen years, providing unique authority, clarity, and breadth of coverage.
The Third Edition continues to supply the building blocks of microeconomic analysis: a thorough treatment of optimization and equilibrium methods, coupled with numerous examples of their application. The Third Edition expands on the earlier editions in two ways. First, the coverage has been rewritten and rearranged. Second, chapters have been added on game theory, oligopoly, asset markets, and information economics. The new chapters fully update the text, highlighting significant developments of the last decade at a level that is accessible for first-year graduate students.

    A well presented text of microeconomic analysis for graduate students.

    Hal Varian's MICROECONOMIC ANALYSIS is a widely used textbook for graduate studies in economics. I recall it being the standard reference guide for my first year microeconomic classes in graduate school. The chapters are presented clearly and coherently for the reader to follow and to comprehend without missing the key concepts. The book emphasizes quantitative analysis and assumes that the student using the text has a sufficient background in quantitative methods to be able to understand the applications of microeconomic theory. Without having this background, one would probably be at a disadvantage in trying to decipher the material presented in each chapter.

    Varian's approach is reader friendly and makes numerous references to the the continuously dynamic world of economics. The math applications are quite practical and provide for a useful learning tool to understand the quantitative aspects of microeconomic theory. It is not surprising that the most of the top graduate economic programs require this text for their first year graduate microeconomic classes. This book is a valuable foundation for more advanced graduate economic training, where both quantitative analysis and critical thinking are necessary to formulate viable research projects and to write substantive policy analyses.
