Umschlagtext:

"This stimulating book shows that an understanding of economic ideas gives deep insights into soccer play, and that soccer provides important evidence to test various theories of economic behavior, such as efficient markets and social influences on behavior. You do not have to be a soccer fan to learn from and enjoy this engaging book."--Gary S. Becker, University of Chicago and Nobel Laureate in Economics


"This is an excellent book by an author who has made innovative and powerful contributions to our understanding of soccer and economics."--Stefan Szymanski, coauthor of Soccernomics


"Palacios-Huerta is perhaps the preeminent economist using sports applications to help us learn about economics."--J. James Reade, University of Reading
