Microeconomic Theory: Basic Principles and Extension
Microeconomic Theory: Basic Principles and Extension
by Walter Nicholson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £52.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Graduate textbook for microeconomics, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well written book for use by students at the graduate level. So when I get done working on Besanko and Perloff I will be ready (I hope) for Nicholson and Snyder. I can handle parts of it now, and am greatly aided by having bought Geoff Renshaw's 'Maths for Economics'.


Economics Evolving: A History of Economic Thought
Economics Evolving: A History of Economic Thought
by Agnar Sandmo
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.97

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent History of Economic Theory book, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only criticism of this book that I have is that when the book got translated the people doing the translation seemed unaware that Part 2 and 3 of von Thunen's 'Isolated State' has been translated into English and is sold online. That was the only glich that I came across. This and Jurg Niehans book do a great deal to fill in missing parts of my economics education.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely practical microeconomics textbook, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I also bought the previous edition and felt it was money well spent. It is a little harder to work with than Besanko's book, but the material included made me feel it was worth it. The last several chapters tell one a great deal about how job candidates are evaluated and the economics that stand behind that. Very insightful.


Microeconomics: An Integrated Approach
Microeconomics: An Integrated Approach
by David Besanko
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and filled with lots of help along the way, 20 Feb 2014

This a very user friendly microeconomics textbook. It is fully suitable for the Intermediate Microeconomics level. It reads well and for self-study this book is a winner.


Maths for Economics
Maths for Economics
by Geoff Renshaw
Edition: Paperback
Price: £39.59

5.0 out of 5 stars The first aid kit for my intermediate microeconomics textbooks, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maths for Economics (Paperback)
Here is help for Microeconomics w/Calculus by Perloff; Microeconomics with Calculus with Nicholson and Snyder; and Microeconomics with Besanko and Braeutigam. You all wrote excellent microeconomics textbooks and with Geoff Renshaw riding shotgun I think I can handle all of you on a self-study basis.


Researches Into the Mathematical Principles of the Theory of Wealth (Nabu Public Domain Reprints)
Researches Into the Mathematical Principles of the Theory of Wealth (Nabu Public Domain Reprints)
by Antoine Augustin Cournot
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.76

5.0 out of 5 stars Old, but still extremely readable, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book for a pittance and was I surprised. The funniest thing about this edition is that when Irving Fisher added in the mathematical economics bibliography in 1927 at the very end of the book he added in an advertisement for a short book he had written to help students deal with the math in this book. It isn't just a problem with this book, but modern students need a companion math help book with most of the Intermediate microeconomics textbooks as well. He was just more honest and says explicitly that it is a companion for the Cournot treatise.


Mathematics for Economists: An Introductory Textbook
Mathematics for Economists: An Introductory Textbook
by Malcolm Pemberton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £31.90

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for self-study, 20 Feb 2014
From the reviews listed I was under the impression that this would be a good self-study help. I will give it to Hebrew University where someone with either the math skills or someone to work with them can use it. I also bought Geoff Renshaw's 'Maths for Economics' with which I am pleased. Renshaw's is the self-study book I was looking for in the first place.


The Economic Conditions of Judaea After the Destruction of the Second Temple
The Economic Conditions of Judaea After the Destruction of the Second Temple
by Adolph Buchler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent older monograph returned to in print status, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thanks go to Wipf & Stock of Eugene, Oregon for putting this monograph back in print. I actually live in North Jerusalem and know the places mentioned in this study. Of course if you really know all of the sources you could pull this stuff together on your own, but this is a whole lot easier. This should be of use for those working in Economic History and/or Judaism in the period of the Mishnah. For me this was a perfect match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jurg Niehans wants to be your Economics learning Coach, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a learning coach Niehans has teamed up with online booksellers and tried to cover as wide a range of economic topics as economists have written books to cover. Niehans tries to tell you why you should dig up these books and about the treasures you will find if you do. He does not always utter words of love for every prior economist who might have written a book, but Niehans tries to tell you where some of the gold is hidden. In so doing he is acting as a learning coach for the independent student who may live anywhere in the world and have access to the Internet and a stable and convertible currency for buying books online. As you would expect in a free market he has competitors such as Mark Blaug who also wants to be your learning coach for Economics.


The Economics of Time
The Economics of Time

5.0 out of 5 stars Early treatment of the Economics of Time, 15 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Economics of Time (Paperback)
This is a serious economic treatment of the Economics of Time. Author deals with leisure, time spent in transportation and work time. When this first came out the Western world was still in the Industrial Age and since then has come into the Information Age when time is much more a central concern in Economics than it was then. Missing in his treatment is a valuation of time, what is time worth?
