This book explores economic concepts and theory for industrial organization, public finance, and labor economics in the context of applications and examples from American and international sports. The book includes many of the recent events in the sports industry and broader economy.
The sports industry can be the ideal paradigm to illustrate economic concepts such as industrial organization, public finance, and labor economics. This book consists of the latest issues and research, such as stadium attendance demographics, business models of successful teams, and the growing internationalization of sport.
The Economics of Sports 4th Edition introduces the essentials of economics in three sections that illustrate key areas, industrial organization, public finance, and labor economics. The final section covers theories related to the not-for-profit sector such as the theory of bureaucracy. Biographical sketches of highly influential people in the economics of sports are included in each chapter to help students appreciate the formative roles they played in defining teams and leagues.
Providing flexibility and seamless organization: Divided into five parts that build upon one another as the material progresses, this textbook provides students with a full view of sports economics. Chapters 1 and 2 provide an introduction to sports economics and a review of principle level tools. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 focus on the industrial organization of the sports industry.
