The Economics of Contracts (International Library of Critical Writings in Economics)

Patrick Bolton, Barbara and David Zalaznick

The Economics of Contracts provides a guided tour to the leading ideas in contract theory. It assembles some of the foundational writings on contracting under limited and asymmetric information, incentives and mechanism design. It contains, in particular, the key contributions of five recent Nobel Prize winners in economics and brings together the most important articles that have followed these path-breaking works.(Edward Elgar Pub)
