**Economic Theory**

**2.1 General Textbook:**

Mas-Colell, A., Whinston, M. D., & Green, J. R. (1995).

*Microeconomic theory*(Vol. 1). New York: Oxford university press.

Kreps, D. M. (2012).

*Microeconomic foundations I: choice and competitive markets*(Vol. 1). Princeton University Press.

Rubinstein, A. (2012).

*Lecture notes in microeconomic theory: the economic agent*. Princeton University Press.

__MWG worth reading for at least three times for every econ student. But for those who are interested in being a theorist, it's not deep enough. More serious treatment is needed and Kreps (2012) would be a great advanced reference. Rubinstein (2012) on the other hand is a well-written but much easier book. Read it for fun and insights.__

**2.2 Decision and Market:**

Fishburn, P. C. (1970).

*Utility theory for decision making*(No. RAC-R-105). Research analysis corp McLean VA.

Chipman, J. S. (1971). Preferences, utility, and demand.

Debreu, G. (1987).

*Theory of value: An axiomatic analysis of economic equilibrium*(Vol. 17). Yale University Press.

Arrow, K. J. (2012).

*Social choice and individual values*(Vol. 12). Yale university press.

Chambers, C. P., & Echenique, F. (2016).

*Revealed Preference Theory*.

Deaton, A., & Muellbauer, J. (1980).

*Economics and consumer behavior*. Cambridge university press.

__Arrow, Debreu and Deaton are three super famous and classical books, especially the first two. Fishburn and Chipman are two excellent references for serious technical treatment in decision theory. Chambers & Echenique (2016) is of great help in terms of linking classical topic of choice-based theory to modern applications.__

**2.3 Game Theory:**

Fudenberg, D., & Tirole, J. (1991). Game theory, 1991.

*Cambridge, Massachusetts*,

*393*.

Myerson, R. B. (2013).

*Game theory*. Harvard university press.

Maschler, M. S., & Zamir, E. Sh.(2013): Game Theory.

Mailath, G. J., & Samuelson, L. (2006).

*Repeated games and reputations*(Vol. 2). Oxford: Oxford university press.

Mertens, J. F., Sorin, S., & Zamir, S. (2015).

*Repeated games*(Vol. 55). Cambridge University Press.

__Needless to say, FT is the "Bible" in game theory, just like MWG in microeconomics. Myerson is an extremely insightful one, but you'd better read some other "more standard" game theory textbooks before going to Myerson. MSZ (2013) is more up-to-date, with a nice treatment in epistemic foundation and universal type space part. MS is famous in repeated games, but I haven't read it yet. MSZ (2015) is exciting for its technical style.__

*The theory of incentives: the principal-agent model*. Princeton university press.

Salanié, B. (2005).

__I'm not familiar with this field so sorry for the incompleteness.__
