Common Pool Resources

Common Pool Resources: Strategic Behavior, Inefficiencies, and Incomplete Information, with Felix Munoz-Garcia, Cambridge University Press, Forthcoming June 2021.

Main features:

  • The textbook uses a game-theory approach to help readers understand the mathematical representation of how to find equilibrium behavior in CPRs, how to identify the socially optimal appropriation, and how to measure the inefficiencies that arise.
  • Algebra and calculus steps are clearly explained, so students can more easily reproduce the analysis and apply it in their own research.
  • Summarizes experimental studies that tested theoretical results in controlled environments, and provides references for further reading.
  • Solutions to all odd-numbered exercises at the end of the book.

Ancillary materials for instructors: 

  • Solutions Manual, with detailed answer keys to all end-of-chapter exercises.
  • PowerPoint slides of all chapters to facilitate teaching preparation.

Intermediate Microeconomic Theory: Tools and Step-by-Step Examples, with Felix Munoz-Garcia, MIT Press, November 2020.

A short, rigorous introduction to intermediate microeconomic theory that offers worked-out examples, tools for solving exercises, and algebra support.

This book takes a concise, example-filled approach to intermediate microeconomic theory, focusing on worked-out examples and step-by-step solutions. Each chapter presents theoretical models and then offers several examples and applications. The book provides step-by-step tools for solving standard exercises, offering students a common approach for solving similar problems. The book walks readers through algebra steps and calculations, so only a basic background in algebra and calculus is assumed. The book includes 140 self-assessment exercises, giving students an opportunity to apply concepts from previous worked-out examples.

Ancillary materials for instructors: 

  • Solutions Manual, with detailed answer keys to all self-assessment exercises and all end-of-chapter exercises (481 exercises in total).
  • PowerPoint slides of all chapters, which should facilitate teaching preparation for instructors teaching the class.
