A fresh, modern approach to intermediate economics, this book breaks with tradition in a number of innovative ways. The author uses a game-theoretical and experimental point of view and presents an unfolding theme that provides a cohesive framework for the theory. In an effort to develop students' critical thinking, he asks them to question the theory they are learning and presents them with unsolved problems and unanswered questions in microeconomic theory to motivate the subject and make it real.
