Applied Microeconomic Theory presents a seminal collection of the author’s influential papers in a number of areas of applied microeconomic theory. This invaluable volume contains a selection of both published and unpublished papers written over a period of thirty years and reveals Curtis Eaton’s profound economic insight and ability.

Topics covered include:

• Strategic market structure. Beginning with Eaton’s pioneering 1975 paper on pre-emption by product proliferation in a differentiated oligopoly and ending with his paper – in collaboration with Nicholas Schmitt – on the implications for market structure of flexible manufacturing published in 1995.
• Efficiency wages, including two of the very earliest papers on the subject written in collaboration with William White.
• Theory of price in both labour and output markets.
• Collusive behavior, including a number of important papers written in collaboration with Mukesh Eswaran.
‘This is an excellent collection of papers written by a leader of thought in industrial organisation for the last twenty years.’
– Kevin Lawler, Economic Issues
