Economic Topics in Sports
ECON 221
Spring 2022
Section: 01  

This course intends to provide students with a new perspective on both sports and economics. It will not only shed light on the business components of professional sports, but also lead students through analyses of other aspects of sports such as the nature of the game on the field, how leagues are organized, how playing rules are formulated and enforced, and how owners and coaches make personnel decisions. The goal of this course is to reveal the persuasiveness of economic reasoning underlying such decision-making in the world of sports.
