Here is my preliminary reading list for the spring semester; the class is for Ph.d. students and some Masters students. I always have them read one atheoretical, typically lousy management book for purposes of contrast. I then ask them why abstract theory is any better. Most of all I try to teach the core mechanisms of microeconomics. I believe in enforced self-constraint, no matter what the academic level, so they have a brief quiz on the assigned readings every week. Additional reading suggestions would be welcome, I have turned on the comments function for this purpose. If you wish, check out part I of the class from this fall, can you guess who taught that…?
