“"The first outstanding quality of this textbook is that, in comparison to other textbooks, it gives a much more thorough account of modern thinking. The second is its clarity and precision. This book was clearly written by a master of the field." Jean-Michel Grandmont , CEPREMAP, Paris”
“Laffont's book has the great merit to treat a variety of topics which are not covered by a unique textbook. In fact, many subjects are not considered, to the best of my knowledge, by existing textbooks. Laffont's book, and this is one of his strengths, deals very clearly subjects of high scurrent interest.”
Roger Guesnerie, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales
