How ’bout That, Sports Fans?

The Economics of Sports, a new textbook by Peter von Allmen of the Department of Business and Economics and Michael Leeds of Temple University, already has been adopted as a course book at more than 20 colleges and universities. Written for von Allmen’s own “Economics of Sports” class, the book discusses industrial organization, public finance and labor economics, illustrating these issues with case studies from the sports world. Karl Einolf of Mount St. Mary’s College in Emmitsburg, Md., said: “Leeds and von Allmen turn every sports enthusiast into a fan of economics.”

The Economics of Sports by Michael Leeds and Peter von Allmen is published by Addison Wesley. For additional information:
