The study of industrial organization (IO) -- the analysis of the way firms compete with one another -- has become a key component of economics and of such related disciplines as finance, strategy, and marketing. This book provides an issue-driven introduction to industrial organization. Although formal in its approach, it is written in a way that requires only basic mathematical training. It includes a vast array of examples, from both within and outside the United States. This second edition has been thoroughly updated and revised. In addition to updated examples, this edition presents a more systematic treatment of public policy implications. It features added advanced sections, with analytical treatment of ideas previously presented verbally; and exercises, which allow for a deeper and more formal understanding of each topic. The new edition also includes an introduction to such empirical methods as demand estimation and equilibrium identification. Supplemental material is available online.

Introduction to Industrial/Organizational Psychology provides an accessible approach to psychological theory and its applications to the world of work. Using both classic theories and research along with the latest developments and innovations, this student-centered text shows practical applications of theoretical concepts using examples from work situations that students may be familiar with—such as service industries, internet companies, and startups—in addition to traditional office and factory work settings. Each chapter includes key terms and review questions, and the text features special sections highlighting applications of I/O psychology theories, psychological approaches to everyday work situations, and current areas of research and practice. The seventh edition is thoroughly updated to include the latest research on each key topic. It also includes expanded coverage of international issues, job engagement, and emerging topics in the field, such as workplace bullying, virtual teams and organizations, agile organization structures, and web-based training and assessment. The book will be of interest to undergraduate students in introductory I/O psychology or psychology of work behavior courses. For additional resources, please consult the Companion Website at www.routledge.com/cw/riggio, where instructors will find an expanded instructor’s manual, test bank, and lecture slides, and students will find chapter summaries and learning objectives.

This upper-level undergraduate text provides an introduction to industrial organization theory along with applications and nontechnical analyses of the legal system and antitrust laws. Using the modern approach but without emphasizing the mathematical generality inherent in many of the arguments, it bridges the gap between existing nontheoretical texts written for undergraduates and highly technical texts written for graduate students. The book can also be used in masters' programs, and advanced graduate students will find it a convenient guide to modern industrial organization.The treatment is rigorous and comprehensive. A wide range of models of all widely used market structures, strategic marketing devices, compatibility and standards, advertising, R&D, as well as more traditional topics are considered in versions much simplified from the originals but that retain the basic intuition. Shy first defines the issues that industrial organization addresses and then develops the tools needed to attack the basic questions. He begins with perfect competition and then considers imperfectly competitive market structures including a wide variety of monopolies, and all forms of quantity and price competitions. The last chapter provides a helpful feature for students by showing how various theories may be related to particular industries but not to others. Topics include: the basics needed to understand modern industrial organization; market structure (monopoly, homogenous products, differentiated products); mergers and entry; research and development; economics of compatibility and standards; advertising; quality and durability; pricing tactics; marketing tactics; management, compensation, and information; price dispersion and search theory; and special industries.

In part I hedevelops the modern theory of monopoly, addressing single product and multi product pricing, staticand intertemporal price discrimination, quality choice, reputation, and vertical restraints.In partII, Tirole takes up strategic interaction between firms, starting with a novel treatment of theBertrand-Cournot interdependent pricing problem. He studies how capacity constraints, repeatedinteraction, product positioning, advertising, and asymmetric information affect competition ortacit collusion. He then develops topics having to do with long term competition, including barriersto entry, contestability, exit, and research and development.

Now in its 4th edition, Work in the 21st Century: An Introduction to Industrial and Organizational Psychology is the most current, engaging, and highly regarded text for the industrial and organizational psychology course.

Although recent I-O research provides a wealth of new material to explore, the book’s length has been reduced in this edition by omitting, or streamlining the discussion of, less current material. The 4th edition presents many new topics, including social networking sites (e.g., Facebook) and the workplace, I-O psychologists’ role in sustainable and environmentally conscious organizations, employee engagement, genetics and entrepreneurship, SIOP’s new status as a consultative non-governmental organization (NGO) to the United Nations, and evidence-based I-O psychology. There is expanded coverage of many topics including international and cross-cultural issues, competency modeling, core self-evaluations, legal issues, entrepreneurial motivation, authentic leadership, personality-based job analysis, emotional intelligence, bullying, leader stereotypes, emotional labor, procedural justice in performance evaluations, and telecommuting.

Economic Models for Industrial Organization focuses on the specification and estimation of econometric models for research in industrial organization. In recent decades, empirical work in industrial organization has moved towards dynamic and equilibrium models, involving econometric methods which have features distinct from those used in other areas of applied economics. These lecture notes, aimed for a first or second-year PhD course, motivate and explain these econometric methods, starting from simple models and building to models with the complexity observed in typical research papers. The covered topics include discrete-choice demand analysis, models of dynamic behavior and dynamic games, multiple equilibria in entry games and partial identification, and auction models.

Introduction to Industrial Engineering, Second Edition offers an in-depth analysis of the industrial engineering profession. While also providing a historical perspective chronicling the development of the profession, this book describes the standard duties performed, the tools and terminologies used, and the required methods and processes needed to complete the tasks at hand. It also defines the industrial engineer’s main areas of operation, introduces the topic of information systems, and discusses their importance in the work of the industrial engineer.
