The Theory of General Economic Equilibrium: A Differentiable Approach (Econometric Society Monographs)

Andreu Mas-Colell

Best price for this book: $ 71.16

Buy
Andreu Mas-Colell has been doing pioneering work using differential topology in the analysis of general equilibrium. This work is regarded as outstanding and one of the major contributions to the development of rigorous economic theory in the last twenty years. The articles he has written have been difficult and technically demanding. In this book he brings this work together to show its scope and its power. He presents the analysis in a way which makes it accessible to the broader range of economic theorists and advanced students. This book has been long awaited as a seminal contribution to the subject.

Andreu Mas-Colell, un 'minnesoto' que fracasó en política (Spanish Edition)

Las élites políticas catalanas se dejan juzgar por su capacidad de desafío al Estado y olvidan su gestión sobre la vida de las personas. Andreu Mas Colell es quien más y mejor se ha beneficiado de ese absentismo social del poder.
Un académico notable y un político mediocre se dan cita en el mismo personaje. Quien pudo aspirar a un Premio Nobel de Economía acabó cuadrando sus números sin alma.
La historia del consejero de Economía y Finanzas de la Generalitat de Cataluña es la de un hombre que pasó de tocar la cumbre universitaria a dirigir el quebranto de las cuentas públicas catalanas, el ridículo de la aerolínea Spanair o la venta del ajuar ciudadano con privatizaciones sospechosas y fallidas como la de las aguas catalanas.
Este libro narra esa historia de éxitos y fracasos desde la perspectiva de diferentes protagonistas, todos ellos próximos al profesor minnesoto.

Simple Adaptive Strategies: From Regret-Matching to Uncoupled Dynamics (World Scientific Series in Economic Theory)

Sergiu Hart

Best price for this book: $ 52.5

Buy
This volume collects almost two decades of joint work of Sergiu Hart and Andreu Mas-Colell on game dynamics and equilibria. The starting point was the introduction of the adaptive strategy called regret-matching, which on the one hand is simple and natural, and on the other is shown to lead to correlated equilibria. This initial finding — boundedly rational behavior that yields fully rational outcomes in the long run — generated a large body of work on the dynamics of simple adaptive strategies. In particular, a natural condition on dynamics was identified: uncoupledness, whereby decision-makers do not know each other's payoffs and utilities (so, while chosen actions may be observable, the motivations are not). This condition turns out to severely limit the equilibria that can be reached. Interestingly, there are connections to the behavioral and neurobiological sciences and also to computer science and engineering (e.g., via notions of "regret").

Simple Adaptive Strategies is self-contained and unified in its presentation. Together with the formal treatment of concepts, theorems, and proofs, significant space is devoted to informal explanations and illuminating examples. It may be used for advanced graduate courses — in game theory, economics, mathematics, computer science, engineering — and for further research.

Readership: Graduate students and researchers in game theory, economic theory, econometrics, computer science and engineering.

General Equilibrium and Game Theory: Ten Papers

Andreu Mas-Colell revolutionized our understanding of competitive markets, price formation, and the behavior of market participants. General Equilibrium and Game Theory offers readers a compendium of his most important scholarly contributions, gathering in a single volume the groundbreaking papers that have solidified his standing as one of the preeminent economic theorists of our time.

Built upon the foundations of neoclassical economics, Mas-Colell’s work is distinguished by a mathematical and analytical elegance that brings theory closer to real-world situations. He overturns the standard assumption of general equilibrium theory―that markets are perfectly competitive and their participants are perfectly rational―and concludes that neither the law of supply and demand nor the existence of equilibrium prices depends on the rationality of agents. Similarly, Mas-Colell (working with Sergiu Hart) challenges classical game theory’s reliance on rational behavior, demonstrating that adaptation and learning shape the dynamics of repeated games.

Addressing central questions of finance, trade, industrial organization, and welfare economics, Mas-Colell shows the surprising power and versatility of differentiability and linear-space mathematical techniques, and he emphasizes the fruitfulness of cooperative game-theory approaches, such as Shapley value theory and the Bargaining Set, for understanding competition and distribution. General Equilibrium and Game Theory is a signal contribution to economic theory and an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to study the craft of a master of economic modeling.

Cooperation: Game-Theoretic Approaches (Nato ASI Subseries F:)

Best price for this book: $ 195

Buy
Issues relating to the emergence, persistence, and stability of cooperation among social agents of every type are widely recognized to be of paramount importance. They are also analytically difficult and intellectually challenging. This book, arising from a NATO Advanced Study Institute held at SUNY in 1994, is an up-to-date presentation of the contribution of game theory to the subject. The contributors are leading specialists who focus on the problem from the many different angles of game theory, including axiomatic bargaining theory, the Nash program of non-cooperative foundations, game with complete information, repeated and sequential games, bounded rationality methods, evolutionary theory, experimental approaches, and others. Together they offer significant progress in understanding cooperation.
