1. Recent Developments in the Economics of Information

    Recent Developments in the Economics of Information

    Edited by Cristiano Antonelli
    This volume presents a compilation of key papers chronicling the evolution of the economics of information into the economics of knowledge. It traces the unfolding of the fertile ambiguity and ambivalence of the notion of information with the identification and eventual separation of its two basic, quite distinct meanings: knowledge and signals. It documents the progressive understanding that it is not only necessary to search, screen and understand signals, but also to assess and select them so as to distinguish between true, false and fake ones. The capability to process signals and transform them into actual information stems from the stock of competence and knowledge that individuals and organizations possess and mobilize. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this collection will be an indispensable research tool for economists and scholars alike. Learn More

    Incomplete Markets

    Edited by Michael Magill, Martine Quinzii
    This two-volume set offers an extraordinary précis of classic articles on the general equilibrium theory of incomplete markets.

This setting provides the simplest version of the incomplete-market model. However, the study of incomplete markets has evolved from finite to infinite horizon economies. The second volume examines the interesting new technical and conceptual issues that arise from the exploration of incomplete market economies over an open-ended future. Learn More

  16. Pricing Tactics, Strategies, and Outcomes

    Pricing Tactics, Strategies, and Outcomes

    Edited by Michael Waldman, Justin P. Johnson
    The economics literature on pricing and pricing tactics has made huge progress in the last few decades mostly due to the influence of the asymmetric information and game theory revolutions in microeconomic theory. This authoritative two volume collection brings together some classic contributions which predate these revolutions, and older and newer papers which have employed these modern techniques to further our understanding of how pricing works in real world settings. Pricing Tactics, Strategies, and Outcomes approaches the subject mainly from the theoretical perspective, but includes also some important empirical papers. Important topics covered include entry deterrence, reputation formation, product line pricing, collusive behavior, tying and bundling, leasing, and sales and couponing strategies. The book should prove a useful reference tool for marketing students and faculty interested in the literature on pricing. Learn More
