Economic principles inform good business decision making. Although economics is sometimes dismissed as a discourse of practical relevance to only a relatively small circle of academicians and policy analysts who call themselves economists, sound economic reasoning benefits any manager of a business, whether they are involved with production/operations, marketing, finance, or corporate strategy. Along with enhancing decision making, the field of economics provides a common language and framework for comprehending and communicating phenomena that occur within a business, as well as between a business and its environment. This text addresses the core of a subject commonly called managerial economics, which is the application of microeconomics to business decisions. Key relationships between price, quantity, cost, revenue, and profit for an individual firm are presented in form of simple conceptual models. The text includes key elements from the economics of consumer demand and the economics of production. The book discusses economic motivations for expanding a business and contributions from economics for improved organization of large firms. Market price quantity equilibrium, competitive behavior, and the role of market structure on market equilibrium and competition are addressed. Finally, the text considers market regulation in terms of the generic problems that create the need for regulation and possible remedies for those problems. Although the academic literature of managerial economics often employs abstract mathematics and large corporations create and use sophisticated mathematical models that apply economics, this book focuses on concepts, terminology, and principles, with minimal use of mathematics. The reader will gain a better understanding of why businesses and markets function as they do and how those institutions can function better.

Boyes introduces non-majors to the power of economics in business decision making. The text's intuitive approach clearly highlights how economics influences marketing, management, and other business-related decisions. In addition to traditional principles of price theory MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS examines organizational behavior, strategic management, human resource management, and emerging issues such as game theory, TQM, and information economics. MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS departs from convention to illustrate the role of economic intuition in making sound business decisions. While other texts focus on quantitative analysis, this book enphasizes logic and conceptual modeling -- reinforced by real-life examples -- to highlight the pivotal link between economics and key business concerns such as costs, prices, markets, and personnel. Students learn to weigh the strategic costs and benefits of each business choice, instead of relying on popular quick-fix solutions. Ideal for students in MBA programs and less quantitative courses, MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS demonstrates the power of economic insight on business decision making.

Each year, thousands of businesses file for bankruptcy protection because managers fail to efficiently organize the company’s operations, misread market trends, pay inadequate attention to product quality, or misinterpret the activities and intentions of rival companies. Perhaps they fail to formulate optimal advertising or financing strategies, procure raw materials and components at least cost, or provide adequate incentives to motivate workers to put forth their best efforts. Managerial economics is the application of economic principles to topics of concern to managers. This textbook develops a framework for predicting managerial responses to changes in the business environment. It combines the various business disciplines with quantitative methods to identify optimal solutions to more efficiently achieve a firm’s organizational objectives. The topics discussed in this textbook are readily accessible to students with a background in the principles of microeconomics and business mathematics. The selection and organizations of topics makes the textbook appropriate for use in a wide range of curricula by students with different backgrounds.
