“The Theory of Industrial Organization” is the first primary text to treat the new industrial organization at the advanced-undergraduate and graduate level. Rigorously analytical and filled with exercises coded to indicate level of difficulty, it provides a unified and modern treatment of the field with accessible models that are simplified to highlight robust economic ideas while working at an intuitive level. To aid students at different levels, each chapter is divided into a main text and supplementary section containing more advanced material. Each chapter opens with elementary models and builds on this base to incorporate current research in a coherent synthesis. Tirole begins with a background discussion of the theory of the firm. In part I he develops the modern theory of monopoly, addressing single product and multi product pricing, static and intertemporal price discrimination, quality choice, reputation, and vertical restraints. In part II, Tirole takes up strategic interaction between firms, starting with a novel treatment of the Bertrand-Cournot interdependent pricing problem. He studies how capacity constraints, repeated interaction, product positioning, advertising, and asymmetric information affect competition or tacit collusion. He then develops topics having to do with long term competition, including barriers to entry, contestability, exit, and research and development. He concludes with a “game theory user’s manual” and a section of review exercises. Jean Tirole is a Professor of Economics at MIT.

Investments AGE is adaption of Investments, Ninth Edition, by Zvi Bodie, Alex Kane, and Alan J. Marcus. It blends practical and theoretical coverage, while maintaining an appropriate rigor and a clear writing style. Its unifying theme is that security markets are nearly efficient, meaning that most securities are priced appropriately given their risk and return attributes. The text places greater emphasis on asset allocation and offers a much broader and deeper treatment of futures, options, and other derivative security markets than most investment texts.
This Asia Global Edition puts the spotlight on financial instruments, markets, trading practices, institutions, and regulatory framework pertinent to the Asian financial landscape.

With this text, they will have a ringside perspective of both Asian and global markets and be able to form a clear stand on emerging trends. The theoretical and conceptual aspects of investment analysis are not context specific so very few changes were made to such material.
