9780324359817: Managerial Economics: A Problem Solving Approach (Thomas South-Western's Mba Series in Economics)

This breakthrough text shows MBA's how to use economics to solve business problems. Succinct, faced paced, and challenging, students should be able to read the book from cover to cover and come away with a good understanding of how to diagnose business problems, and then fix them. With a lively, interactive approach, MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS focuses on the kinds of decisions managers face on a daily bases, making it an excellent resource for students pursuing business -- rather than academic -- careers. "Managerial Economics: A Problem Solving Approach is a breath of fresh air. After having taught managerial economics for 20 years, I became dissatisfied with texts that confront students with graphs, economic principles only loosely connntected to business problems, and tedious calculations. I wanted a text that really helps students to see how economic principles could help them solve business problems. This new text does just that."--Ed Millner, Chairman, Department of Economics, Virginia Commonwealth University. "With no experiece in business and no exposure to math since a D in high school trig, I found economics utterly incomprehensible. Then [the text] spoke one sentence to me, ... It all became clear."--PJ O'Rourke, one of America's leading political satirists and best-selling author of Eat the Rich: a Treatise on Economics. "In twenty years, it will be seen as the standard way to teach economics."--Robert Litan, Vice President for Research and Policy at the Kauffman Foundation.

About the Author:

Professor Froeb received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. When the antitrust agencies began using his models to predict the competitive effects of mergers, his academic research passed what he calls "a market test." This resulted in his 2003 appointment to Chief Economist of the Federal Trade Commission where he enforced the antitrust and consumer protection laws of the United States. He also managed 75 economists who tore down barriers to competition (often erected by well-meaning bureaucrats). In July 2005 Dr. Froeb returned to Vanderbilt University where today he holds the William Oehmig Chair of Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise. He used to win the "Most Outstanding Teacher" award, but now he finishes behind his co-author, Brian McCann. His textbook, MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS: A PROBLEM-SOLVING APPROACH is well recognized for teaching students to apply economics to real business problems. It is filled with real world problems (and solutions) from Professor Froeb's students and clients. Dr. Froeb's research focuses on the economics of competition policy. He has taught at Tulane University, worked at the U.S. Department of Justice, and spent a year at the University of Chicago Law School.

Dr. Brian T. McCann has taught courses in managerial economics, strategic management, and entrepreneurship at the undergraduate, MBA and executive education levels. He holds an MBA from Vanderbilt University where he earned the Founder's Medal as the top graduate of the class. Dr. McCann received his doctoral training in strategic management at Purdue University's Krannert School of Management where he was awarded the Ross Fellowship, the Krannert Certificate for Distinguished Teaching, and the Purdue Research Foundation Research Grant. His more than 10 years of industry experience include operating a residential land development company, serving as the CFO for an Internet start-up, and implementing new strategic initiatives for a non-profit economic development group. In addition to co-authoring this MBA-level textbook in managerial economics, Dr. McCann's work has appeared or is forthcoming in journals, such as STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT JOURNAL, JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT, and JOURNAL OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES. His current research interests span strategic management and entrepreneurship and include the performance implications of firm agglomeration, the effects of ownership structure on competitive behaviors, and the role of threshold-based decision making in the entrepreneurial process.
