Editorial Reviews

"This unique textbook presents classic models and new results in finance, skillfully couched within the more general framework of economic decision-making under uncertainty. Throughout, Danthine and Donaldson carefully balance the need for both intuition and technical detail."  --Peter Ireland, Boston College
