What do Economics and Sports have in common? Plenty! “To Build or Not to Build a Stadium?” Why Did Yasiel Puig Flee Cuba?” “Why are Diamondbacks Tickets So Cheap?” “NASCAR, Cartels and Labor Costs” “Why Do Athletes Make More Money Than Teachers?” “Worshipping at the Altar of Adi, Phil, and Kevin; Adidas, Nike & Under Armour” “Why is it Hard for Pro-athletes to Preserve Wealth?”

The Economics of Sports workshop will use NEW & CURRENT, real-world sports examples to cover important economics concepts, including: human capital, wealth creation, entrepreneurship, incentives, trade-offs, fiscal policy, taxation, market vs. command economies. You can teach half a semester of economics using SPORTS as a backdrop!

 Meet athletes, athletic directors, or sports managers for an interactive panel discussion.
