From the Publisher

Product description

Review

An excellent introduction... presents mathematical and statistical findings in straightforward prose. ― Financial Times

I wish more people would read Dasgupta's book, and I wish more economists would write variations on its theme. It is a model specimen. ―
www.economicprincipals.com

The text is direct, rigorous and thought-provoking. It provides an intelligent, rigorous and readable introduction to economics. ―
London Book Review.com

About the Author

Partha Dasgupta is Frank Ramsey Professor of Economics, University of Cambridge and Fellow of St John's College. His book, An Inquiry into Well-Being and Destitution (OUP, 1993) was praised as 'a tour de force... a model of good economics' (Joseph Stiglitz) and 'philosophically sophisticated, empirically well-informed, ambitious and lively' (James Griffin).
