Summary
"Case studies provide a valuable real-world context for applying managerial economics principles. For example, a brand-new Capstone Case Study at the end of Part Three details the dramatic downfall of Arthur Andersen and asks students to apply the concepts to determine what went wrong. Working with real troubled companies such as Arthur Andersen, Enron, and WorldCom gives students greater insight into the importance of sound decision-making in managerial economics and provides a great opportunity for group assignments and in-class discussions."--BOOK JACKET
