Der Holzbau hat sich grundlegend erneuert. Er hat gegenüber Konkurrenzbaustoffen deutlich an Marktanteilen gewonnen und wird von Systemen wie Rahmen-, Skelett- und Massivholzbau dominiert. Jeder Holzbau ist durch Struktur bestimmt. Dabei ist es wesentlich, die Zusammenhänge vom Entwurf bis zur Konstruktion zu kennen."Holzbau mit System" geht dieses Thema auf völlig neue Weise an. Es ist eine analytische, visuell aufgebaute Gesamtdarstellung vom einfachen Einfamilienhaus bis zum mehrgeschossigen Grossbau. Einbezogen sind auch die für das Energiesparen so wichtige Gebäudehülleund die konstruktiv grundlegenden Systeme für Decken und innen liegende Trennwände. Dieses Werk zeigt mit Plänen, schematischen Zeichnungen und Bildern den aktuellen und zukunftsweisenden Stand der Technik, konkretisiert am Beispiel derSchweiz, einem führenden Land im innovativen Holzbau.

In this novel introduction to modern microeconomic theory, Samuel Bowles returns to the classical economists' interest in the wealth and poverty of nations and people, the workings of the institutions of capitalist economies, and the coevolution of individual preferences and the structures of markets, firms, and other institutions. Using recent advances in evolutionary game theory, contract theory, behavioral experiments, and the modeling of dynamic processes, he develops a theory of how economic institutions shape individual behavior, and how institutions evolve due to individual actions, technological change, and chance events. Topics addressed include institutional innovation, social preferences, nonmarket social interactions, social capital, equilibrium unemployment, credit constraints, economic power, generalized increasing returns, disequilibrium outcomes, and path dependency. Each chapter is introduced by empirical puzzles or historical episodes illuminated by the modeling that follows, and the book closes with sets of problems to be solved by readers seeking to improve their mathematical modeling skills. Complementing standard mathematical analysis are agent-based computer simulations of complex evolving systems that are available online so that readers can experiment with the models. Bowles concludes with the time-honored challenge of "getting the rules right," providing an evaluation of markets, states, and communities as contrasting and yet sometimes synergistic structures of governance. Must reading for students and scholars not only in economics but across the behavioral sciences, this engagingly written and compelling exposition of the new microeconomics moves the field beyond the conventional models of prices and markets toward a more accurate and policy-relevant portrayal of human social behavior.

It is often said that everyone understands precisely what is meant by the notion of probability-except those who have spent their lives studying the matter. Upon close scrutiny, the intuitively obvious idea of probability becomes quite elusive. Is it a subjective or objective concept? Are random variables simply improperly measured deterministic variables, or inherently random? What is meant by the phrase "other things held constant" that often appears in descriptions of probability? These questions involve fundamental philosophical and scientific issues, and promise to elude definitive answers for some time. The same type of difficulty arises when attempting to produce a volume on microeconomic theory. The obvious first question-what is microeconomic theory?--

The Southern Africa region has experienced more than its fair share of problems in recent years. Just when it seemed that the hardships wrought by the devastating cycle of droughts and floods of 2000 to 2002 were a thing of the past, other problems emerged. At one level, there have been the weak and often erratic governance mechanisms and political crises in some countries of the region, leading to severe disruptions in agricultural production to the point that supplies and markets have virtually disappeared. At another level, socio-cultural rigidities have often militated against the adoption of efficient farming practices, resulting in sub-optimal choices that lock smallholders into a low equilibrium trap. In the face of the disappearing supplies and missing markets, these have engendered hyper-inflationary trends of a magnitude unknown anywhere else in the world. But in the midst of all this apparent dreariness, cases are emerging from which immense lessons can be drawn. This book assembles a collection of research papers based on studies completed in 2008 and 2009 in Southern Africa that examine various dimensions of the institutional constraints small farmers are facing in the region and how they are going about dealing with them. The papers draw from these diverse and polar experiences and present some theoretical and practical insights that should form the basis for more in-depth, country-level, sector-specific analyses, focusing mainly on citrus, horticultures, cotton and livestock. The thematic issues of income inequality, land reform, natural resource management and value chain governance and chain choice, are covered in this book and are expected to be of interest for a wide constituency, including researchers, development practitioners, rural animators, and policy makers.

This classic text has introduced generations of students to the economic theory of consumer behaviour. Written by 2015 Nobel Laureate Angus Deaton and John Muellbauer, the book begins with a self-contained presentation of the basic theory and its use in applied econometrics. These early chapters also include elementary extensions of the theory to labour supply, durable goods, the consumption function, and rationing. The rest of the book is divided into three parts. In the first of these the authors discuss restrictions on choice and aggregation problems. The next part consists of chapters on consumer index numbers; household characteristics, demand, and household welfare comparisons; and social welfare and inequality. The last part extends the coverage of consumer behaviour to include the quality of goods and household production theory, labour supply and human capital theory, the consumption function and intertemporal choice, the demand for durable goods, and choice under uncertainty.

This book is intended to be a comprehensive and standard textbook for undergraduate students of Microeconomics. Apart from providing students with sufficient study material for examination purpose, it aims at making them understand economics. An effort has been made to explain abstract and complex microeconomic theories in a simple and lucid language without sacrificing analytical sophistication. The subject matter has been structured in a systematic manner without leaving gaps for the readers to fill in. Though the approach is non-mathematical, simple algebra has been used to give a concrete view of economic concepts and theories and to show the applicability of economic theories in decision making.

The new and updated edition of Microeconomic Policy provides an excellent blend of theory and application to foster understanding of economic-based policy making. The book is eclectic in its approach and addresses a rich set of current applications. It is an ideal book for teaching microeconomic-based policy analysis to students. Todd Sandler, University of Texas at Dallas, US Designed for students who have already encountered the microeconomic principles, this valuable text focusses effectively on their policy implications, imbuing the apparently dry theory with its insights for the general welfare. William J. Baumol, New York University, US and Princeton University, US A distinctive feature of this book is the application of microeconomics to public policy. As to be expected given the international reputation of the authors there is a thorough treatment of global environmental policies, including the Stern Report, and a very useful chapter on issues of defence, conflict and terrorism. What this text offers, and most competing books do not is the breadth of coverage. In this revised edition we have integration into the topics of advances in behavioural, evolutionary and Austrian economics. The relevance to business management and government policy of the material presented makes the subject come alive in application. . . a refreshing change from the curve-shifting that dominates traditional microeconomic texts which turns-off so many of our students and prevents them from seeing the crucial importance of economics to almost every aspect of our well-being. John Lodewijks, University of Western Sydney, Australia This thoroughly accessible textbook shows students how microeconomic theory can be used and applied to major issues of public policy. In this way, it will improve their understanding of both microeconomic theory and policy and also develop their ability to critically assess them. Clem Tisdell and Keith Hartley have expanded upon their previous successful work on microeconomics. As a result, this new book is considerably updated with substantial chapter revisions, as well as new chapters dealing with business management, ownership, environmental issues, public choice, defence, conflict and terrorism. Promoting a thorough understanding of this complex yet fundamental topic, Microeconomic Policy: A New Perspective will undoubtedly prove an invaluable textbook for all students, academics and researchers of economics and public policy.

'This is an important, rigorous, and thoroughly engaging text on the economic theory of market behavior. It is unique in the attention devoted to the philosophical underpinnings and the historical background of the Walrasian Theory. Professor Katzner challenges his readers to understand the strengths and the limitations of what has gone before, and he provides guidance as to how he would like to see price theory develop in the future. This is among those rare texts that is designed to inspire further research.' - Hugo Sonnenschein, University of Chicago, US
