This book seeks to train learners to think analytically in a business context. Specifically, it uses over 300 real-world, managerially-oriented applications to show readers how managers apply theories and techniques to solve real-world business problems. The book includes extensive coverage of the latest analytical tools in managerial economics: game-theoretic tactics, best-practices mechanism design, information economics, and organizational architecture, as well as a thorough integration of both international issues and "green" or environmentally friendly businesses and business practices.
