Assembles 22 key papers that Varian (information management and systems, business, and economics, U. of California-Berkeley) has published over the past two decades. They highlight his contributions to equity, dynamics, price discrimination, economic incentives, revealed preference, econometrics, public goods, and economic methodology. Among the topics are two problems in the theory of fairness, boundary restrictions in the global Newton method, the nonparametric approach to analyzing demand and production, a Bayesian approach to assessing real estate, a model of sales, differences of opinion and the volume of trade, a solution to the problem of externalities, economic incentives in software design, and how to build an economic model in your spare time. Many of the papers are not readily available elsewhere, so the collection could be very useful for scholars and graduate students. He does not index subjects. Annotation c.
