Book: Bounded Rationality and Industrial Organization (OUP 2011)




This book synthesizes a recent theoretical literature that analyzes market models in which profit-maximizing firms interact with consumers whose behavior departs from the standard rational-choice model. The book is meant to serve as a textbook for graduate courses in microeconomic theory, industrial organization or behavioral economics.
