I have recently purchased: Economic and Financial Modelling with 
Mathematica by Hal R. Varian (ed). 1993. TELOS, Springer-Verlag.. 

I am not an economist so I can't comment on the economics. There are a 
number of interesting mma applications with code on disk. The book may me 
getting a bit outdated now, but it may be a good place to start. Beware 
though, TELOS books are not for the faint of heart and require quite a bit 
of background knowledge to properly use them!

Take care
