Managerial Economics: Foundations of Business Analysis and Strategy https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260004759.jpeg 13 9781260004755 - Thomas and Maurice's goal for Managerial Economics is to teach students the economic way of thinking about business decisions and strategy. The 13e continues to develop critical thinking skills and provides students with a logical way of analyzing both the routine decisions of managing daily business operations as well as the longer-run strategic plans that seek to manipulate the actions and reactions of rival firms. - Managerial Economics is a self-contained textbook that requires no previous training in economics. While maintaining a rigorous style, this book is designed to be one of the most accessible books in managerial economics from which to teach and learn because of its clarity of presentation and strong end of chapter problems. Rather than parading students quickly through every interesting or new topic in microeconomics and industrial organization, this 13th edition instead carefully develops and applies the most useful concepts for business decision making and strategic planning.

Christopher Thomas

S. Charles Maurice

Professor Emeritus of Economics at Texas A&M University. He spent 30 years in the Department of Economics at Texas A&M, where he served as Department Head from 1977 through 1981, and held the Rex B. Grey University Professorship of Free Enterprise from 1981 through 1985. Professor Maurice published numerous articles on microeconomic theory in the top economic journals. He co-wrote two scholarly books on natural resource depletion: The Doomsday Myth and The Economics of Mineral Extraction. He also wrote with Charles Ferguson, and later Owen Phillips, the widely used intermediate level microeconomics textbook Economic Analysis, which was published from 1971 to 1996. Professor Maurice retired to Gainesville, Florida, where he lived until his death in the Spring of 1999.
