Now in its third edition, this textbook develops the economic way of thinking through problems that MBA students will find relevant to their career goals. Theory and mathematics are kept as simple as possible and illustrated with real-life scenarios. The textbook package includes online video tutorials on key concepts and complex arguments, and topics likely to be assessed in exams. The distinguished author team has developed this textbook over twenty years of teaching microeconomics to MBA students. Chapters are clearly structured to support learning: Part I of each chapter develops key economic principles, whilst Part II draws on those principles to discuss organizational and incentive issues in management and focuses on solving the 'principal-agent' problem to maximize the profitability of the firm - lessons that can be applied to problems MBA students will face in the future. Economics and management are treated equally; this unique textbook presents economics as part of the everyday thinking of business people.

In The Press

'In the third edition, McKenzie and Lee extend the economic way of thinking further into how the structure of firms' organization, finance, and pay affect their profitability and, in the process, make a significant contribution to the science of managing people in the firm setting. With updated sections on the housing bubble, its collapse, and the policies that produced it, they offer more coverage on public policy than the traditional managerial economics text and solid explanations of the actual human behavior 'behind the curves'. With behavioral economist's findings infused and analyzed throughout the text, this is a 'must see' for faculty teaching the MBAs.' J. R. Clark, Probasco Chair, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga
