About this book


This new text deals with topics that are at the core of microeconomic theory - the economics of uncertainty and the economics of games and decisions. It contains a chapter on non-expected utility theory and very up to date coverage of such topics as risk aversion, stochastic dominance and mean-variance utility theory as well as a number of chapters that discuss and illustrate the use of game theory in making decisions under uncertainty.
