Information rules : a strategic guide to the network economy by Carl Shapiro( Book )

66 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Information Rules, authors Shapiro and Varian reveal that many classic economic concepts can provide the insight and understanding necessary to succeed in the information age. They argue that if managers seriously want to develop effective strategies for competing in the new economy, they must understand the fundamental economics of information technology. Whether information takes the form of software code or recorded music, is published in a book or magazine, or even posted on a website, managers must know how to evaluate the consequences of pricing, protecting, and planning new versions of information products, services, and systems. The first book to distill the economics of information and networks into practical business strategies, Information Rules is a guide to the winning moves that can help business leaders navigate successfully through the tough decisions of the information economy. Subjects covered include: Competitive advantage, Economic analysis, Game theory, Information age, Information economy, Information technology, Intellectual property, Marketing strategy, New economy, Pricing, Pricing strategy, Value of information

Internet publishing and beyond : the economics of digital information and intellectual property by Brian Kahin( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rapid growth of the Internet and the World Wide Web is transforming the way information is accessed and used. New models for distributing, sharing, linking, and marketing information are appearing. This volume examines emerging economic and business models for global publishing and information access, as well as the attendant transformation of international information markets, institutions, and businesses. It provides those in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors with a practical framework for dealing with the new information markets. Topics addressed include the effects of various technological factors and market environments on pricing; the relationship among classic production costs, transaction costs, and the economic value of intellectual property; the effects of different pricing practices for telecommunications and Internet services on the pricing of information; the bundling and unbundling of information services; changing cost structures and the allocation of rights among authors, publishers, and other intermediaries; the effects of markets for complementary products and services, including advertising, on the pricing and use of information; and policy implications of different pricing models.

Introduction à la microéconomie by Hal R Varian( Book )

97 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hal R. Varian expose les fondements de l'analyse dans une perspective nouvelle et moderne, avec la clarté et l'autorité dont seul un enseignant et un chercheur de sa valeur était capable. L'ouvrage se concentre sur les concepts microéconomiques fondamentaux et leur puissance analytique. Il a pour objectif de préparer les étudiants à faire eux-mêmes de la microéconomie et à dépasser l'attitude passive d'écoute du professeur. L'auteur a enrichi son ouvrage d'une sélection d'exemples qui illustrent la puissance analytique des concepts présentés. Cette édition contient un nouveau chapitre consacré à l'économie comportementale. Ce chapitre offre un complément utile à la théorie classique du consommateur et permet d'en comprendre les limites. L'économie comportementale offre des perspectives très intéressantes pour l'analyse économique et les choix politiques. En outre, le chapitre sur la technologie de l'information a été développé. Particulièrement intéressant pour les étudiants, il envisage notamment les questions relatives aux réseaux d'information, aux coûts de changement et à la gestion des droits de propriété sur les biens d'information. Chacun des chapitres de cet ouvrage est court et concentré sur un seul objet de façon à faciliter la tâche des enseignants et des étudiants. L'auteur y analyse à plusieurs reprises des thèmes habituellement réservés à des livres plus spécialisés. Citons les fonctions de demande inverses, les axiomes des préférences révélées, l'équation de Slutsky, les marchés des actifs, la théorie des jeux, l'économie de l'information et un chapitre entier consacré aux ventes aux enchères

Economic and financial modeling with Mathematica by Hal R Varian( Book )

31 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematica is a computer program (software) for doing symbolic, numeric and graphical analysis of mathematical problems. In the hands of economists, financial analysts and other professionals in econometrics and the quantitative sector of economic and financial modeling, it can be an invaluable tool for modeling and simulation on a large number of issues and problems, besides easily grinding out numbers, doing statistical estimations and rendering graphical plots and visuals. Mathematica enables these individuals to do all of this in a unified environment. This book's main use is that of an applications handbook. Modeling in Economics and Finance with Mathematica is a compilation of contributed papers prepared by experienced, "hands on" users of the Mathematica program. They come from a broad spectrum of Mathematica devotees in the econometric and financial/investment community on both the professional and academic fronts. Each paper provides a set of tools and examples of Mathematica in action. These tools will also be made accessible to users via a DOS-based floppy disk which will contain Mathematica Notebooks and Packages, and be packaged with the book

Intergenerational risk sharing by Roger H Gordon( )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we argue that in designing government debt and tax-transfer policies, it is important to consider their implications for the allocation of risk between generations. There is no reason to presume that the market or the family can allocate risk efficiently to future generations, implying that stochastic government policies have the potential to create first-order welfare improvements. The model provides a non-Keynsian justification for debt-finance of wars and recessions, as well as an added rationale for Social Security type tax-transfer schemes which aid unlucky generations, e.g., the Depression generation, at the expense of luckier generations
