Ed. by Brad R. Humphreys and Dennis R. Howard.



299 pages



Praeger perspectives


Humphreys (economics, U. of Alberta), Howard (business, U. of Oregon) and their contributors take a close look at what the industry does, costs, and produces, with articles on the scope of the industry, its international profitability, and the state of the industry in China, the US, college campuses and PC screens. Articles focus exclusively on such financial aspects as team ownership, distribution of awards, competition, government subsidies, pay and performance of players and the valuation of non-market aspects of sports, and others focus on the financial end with such topics as models of worker productivity, statistical analysis in sport, urban redevelopment to support sport, efficiency in sports organizations, the college post-season, player drafts and the globalization of labor markets and the industry itself.
