The Political Economy of Governance Reforms in Central Asia

This chapter addresses a simple problem that nonetheless defies any simple solution. The
main thrust of the argument is neither novel nor surprising.
Measuring Corruption: Myths and Realities

Over the past decade measuring corruption has become an ever-growing empirical field.
Since the mid-nineties, we have undertaken v
3 Consumer Theory
Where does the demand curve come from? In order to explain why individuals
choose different quantities at different prices, we will use a model with three
Consumers have certain restrictions on
A producer uses raw materials, capital, and labor to produce goods and services. Here, we will present a simple model for how they decide how much to
produce and which technology to use for the production.
A large pa
4.1 Individual Demand
We will now show how to use the theory of preferences from last chapter, to
derive an individuals demand curve. Remember that the consumers budget
line can change because of changes in prices or because
9 Perfect Competition
So far, we have discussed how the consumers make their decisions, and what
the producers production possibilities and cost of production look like. The
consumers often take prices a
Supply, Demand, and Market Equilibrium
2 Supply, Demand, and Market
We begin our study of microeconomics by looking at a market with many buyers and sellers, i.e. a market where there is a large amount of competition. We
Choice under Uncertainty
6 Choice under Uncertainty
The situations we have discussed up to this point have all lacked any elements
of uncertainty. Individuals and firms have made their choices knowing what
the outcomes would be. That is, of
So far, we have only studied how different combinations of inputs produce different quantities of a good. Now, we will instead look at the cost of production.
As before, we distinguish between the short and the long run.
Income and Substitution Effects
5 Income and Substitution Effects
In Section 4.1.1, when we derived the individual demand curve, we saw how
the quantity demanded changed when the price changed. We will now use consumer theory to perform a s
Market Interventions and Welfare Effects
10 Market Interventions and Welfare Effects
There are many different opinions about what welfare is. When one talk of
welfare effects in microeconomics, then it is most often about how much utility
