The Kindle edition of the greatest book ever written is now available

I have just noticed that the Kindle edition of the greatest book ever written, aka The Theory of the Firm: An overview of the economic mainstream, is now available.

The big advantage of this edition is the price, US$43.53 compared to US$135.20 for the hardback. Still not exactly cheap but it is cheaper, by a reasonable amount, than the hardback.

I have also, unfortunately, had to update the errata section on the webpage for the book.

Glad you have a Kindle/Amazon version. That's how we buy now.

Gonna pick up a copy after Xmas (when our Southern-side-house renovation is finished or at least cost known )

I might've come back in price by then too :)

Whoops. 'It' might have come back in price. I never come back in price.

Great news, Paul. Can we put it on layby?

Mark: the book may well cost you as much as the renovation! An interesting question is how prices change over time. Are they lowered in an attempt to get those buyers with a lower willingness to pay to buy? Is pricing just price discrimination? Time well tell.

Peter: the hardback version could bankrupt several small nations! The Kindle version is at lest a bit cheaper. But no academic books these days seem cheap.

No. No they aren't.
