An issue-driven introduction to industrial organization, thoroughly updated and revised.

The study of industrial organization (IO)-the analysis of the way firms compete with one another-has become a key component of economics and of such related disciplines as finance, strategy, and marketing. This book provides an issue-driven introduction to industrial organization. Although formal in its approach, it is written in a way that requires only basic mathematical training. It includes a vast array of examples, from both within and outside the United States. This second edition has been thoroughly updated and revised.

In addition to updated examples, this edition presents a more systematic treatment of public policy implications. It features added advanced sections, with analytical treatment of ideas previously presented verbally; and exercises, which allow for a deeper and more formal understanding of each topic. The new edition also includes an introduction to such empirical methods as demand estimation and equilibrium identification. Supplemental material is available online.

Editorial Reviews

Cabral introduces the theoretical ideas and frameworks of contemporary IO expertly, succinctly, and with flair. Motivating examples and stylized facts bring the theories alive. The new edition of Introduction to Industrial Organization updates and improves the organization of the first, while keeping its expository charms.
