31 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this introduction to microeconomics we stress the interrelationship of theory and economic issues. In each chapter we rely on applications to test the insight of theory, and we rely on theory to provide the context for understanding real-world events. We think this is the best way to prepare students to appreciate the power of economics and the issues confronting them on television, in newspapers, in the voting booth, and in their careers
Secret origins of modern microeconomics : Dupuit and the engineers by Robert B Ekelund( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did contemporary microeconomic theory emerge? Who were its chief architects? Conventional wisdom points largely to the work of Alfred Marshall (1842-1924) and his colleagues in England. In this original contribution to the history of economic thought, Robert Ekelund and Robert Hebert convincingly argue that the intellectual tradition of microeconomic inquiry was initiated by members of the Corps des Ingenieurs des Ponts et Chaussees (French corps of state civil engineers), most notably Jules Dupuit (1804-66)

Politicized economies : monarchy, monopoly, and mercantilism by Robert B Ekelund( Book )

Politicized Economies illuminates the high tide of mercantilism in England and the entrenchment of controls in the French and Spanish economies between 1540 and 1640. Ekelund and Tollison subject mercantilist foreign trade to neoclassical-neoinstitutional analysis, examining the general economic organization of the mercantile companies and focusing on the economic inner workings of the East India Company. The authors probe for the origins of the modern corporation in the early joint stock companies of England and analyze the effects of regulatory forms on the business organizations that emerged to engage in foreign trade
Economic origins of Roman Christianity by Robert B Ekelund( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the global marketplace of ideas, few realms spark as much conflict as religion. For millions of people, it is an integral part of everyday life, reflected by a widely divergent supply of practices and philosophical perspectives. Yet, historically, the marketplace has not always been competitive. While the early Common Era saw competition between Christianity, Judaism, and the many pagan cults, Roman Christianity came eventually to dominate Western Europe. Using basic concepts of economic theory, Robert B. Ekelund Jr. and Robert D. Tollison explain the origin and subsequent spread of Roman Christianity, showing first how the standard concepts of risk, cost, and benefit can account for the demand for religion. Then, drawing on the economics of networking, entrepreneurship, and industrial organization, the book explains Christianity's rapid ascent. Like a business, the church developed sound business strategies that increased its market share to a near monopoly in the medieval period. This book offers a fascinating look at the dynamics of Christianity{u2019}s rise, as well as how aspects the church{u2019}s structure{u2014}developed over the first millennium{u2014}illuminate a number of critical problems faced by the church today."--Publisher's description

The economics of Edwin Chadwick : incentives matter by Robert B Ekelund( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Edwin Chadwick (1800 - 1890) is hardly a household name among economists, although he is a well-known hero to sanitation engineers and utilitarian social reformers. His brilliant and cunning ideas relating to contemporary economic policy are illuminated for the first time in this pioneering study. The authors detail Chadwick's sophisticated conceptions of moral hazard, common pool problems, asymmetric information, and theory of competition, all of which differ starkly from those promulgated by Adam Smith and other classical economists. Also examined are Chadwick's views on government versu
