Economics for Mathematicians
November 16, 2012 2:25 AM Subscribe
Economics Mathematics: I have a Maths degree but lately I've become interested in Economics (Microeconomics and Macroeconomics) and have been reading some textbooks and classic texts and doing some online lecture courses on Economics. But find many of that the "handwaving" graphical "proofs" of economic theories lack a sense of mathematical robustness.
Do more thorough mathematics for these ideas exist? Where can I find them?

Secondly, what mathematical theory would be most useful in Economics? Statistics seems the obvious thing ( Statistical Methods / Regression Analysis etc..) - unfortunately that was never my favourite subject at Uni.
(I was more of an Algebras, Group theory, Combinatorics type.)
