Major contributions have been the simplification of econometric techniques, and the propagation of recent developments in the field of the theory of the firm. First publication dealt with applications of econometric methods to particular microeconomic aspects (demand, supply, production). Concerned with the complexity of presentation of econometric techniques in established textbooks, I wrote Theory of Econoetrics using summations instead of
linear algebra, thereby rendering the powerful tools of econometrics accessible to professional economists and students of economics who are averse to mathematics and statistics.
In later years, I became increasingly preoccupied with the content of standard microeconomics textbooks, which largely ignore the changed economic conditions of the countries of the Western world, dominated as they are by large oligopolistic conglomerates. In Modern Microeconomics and NonPrice Decisions, oligopoly is treated as the general case rather than the exception in the contemporary business world. Students of economics are exposed to the recent developments on the oligopoly front, thus being equipped with knowledge that will hopefully enable them to contribute to the solution of current economic problems.
Recent research involves tests of alternative hypotheses regarding the goals of firms, assessment of some economics effects of multinational corporations, and development of a novel approach to the measurement of risk.
