    Sports Through the Lens of Economic History

    Edited by Richard Pomfret, John K. Wilson

  2. Public Policy and Professional Sports

    Public Policy and Professional Sports

    John K. Wilson, Richard Pomfret
    Public Policy and Professional Sports is a comprehensive analysis of public policy aspects of the economics of professional sports, supported by in-depth international case studies. It covers regulation and competition in the sports industry and its labour markets, public spending on stadiums and mega-events, and governance issues including unethical behaviour (corruption, doping, etc). The innovative feature of the work is the combination of economic analysis and well-known international examples with detailed case studies of public policy as it relates to sport in Australia. Australia is an excellent case study due to the high profile of sport in the national psyche and the range of popular professional sports. Learn More

  3. The Economics of Staging the Olympics

    The Economics of Staging the Olympics

    Holger Preuss
    The Olympic Games is a unique event centering global interest on its host city. The financing of the Games has changed dramatically since Munich (1972) and economic interests and effects are increasingly paramount. It is therefore an anomaly that accurate economic analysis and comparison is not readily available. This is the most detailed study on the economic implications of recent and future Olympic Games over four decades. Learn More
