    Recent Developments in Monopoly and Competition Policy

    Edited by George Norman

They provide comprehensive coverage of the theory that underpins competition policy, and of the econometric tests that demonstrate its effects and violations. This timely book will be an invaluable resource to researchers and practitioners alike with an interest in this important subject. Learn More

    The Economics of the Mass Media

    Edited by Gillian Doyle
    The study of the mass media has flourished over recent decades. Whereas media and communications have traditionally been studied via the lens of sociology or other non-economic disciplines, the perspectives and frameworks offered by economics are now properly recognised as central to our understanding of the organization and behaviour of the mass media – a fact reflected in this unique collection. As more and more economists have turned their attention to media firms and industries, a rich and diverse body of literature has emerged. The articles drawn together in this volume present a survey of the papers that have contributed in important ways to this developing field of enquiry. Learn More

  19. Trust


    Edited by Elias L. Khalil
    Trust is an authoritative collection of previously published articles and is unique in the growing literature on trustworthiness. The broad ranging articles are organized into three parts, expressing three definite answers to the question posed in the introduction: Why does trustworthiness pay? Part I, ‘Trust as Strategy’, stipulates that trust is an investment in reputation. Part II, ‘Trust as Taste’, argues that agents have a preference for trustworthiness, which may explain the anomaly of trustworthiness in single-shot games. Part III, ‘Trust as Trait’, maintains that trust is a trait that evolutionary selection may favor. In his extensive introductory essay, Elias Khalil elaborates and contrasts the strengths and weaknesses of each answer. Learn More
