Gassler (economics, Vrije U., Brussels) tries to establish some order in the chaos he sees resulting from economists expanding their portfolio to deal with just about everything in society. He does not offer a new theory, but reformulates existing theory to make it more applicable across disciplines, illuminate its limitations and point out necessary extensions, show its successes, and provide some new extensions of his own. First he sets out the scope, method, foundations, and taxonomy of the theory; then he surveys applications in such contexts as interactions, non-profits, and planets. He writes for upper-division, graduate, and professional economists who are conversant in intermediate microeconomic theory, multivariable calculus, and statistics.
