Economics of College Sports

A Topical Reading List


  • Rodney Fort University of Michigan



In this reading list, journal articles and chapters from collected works of my acquaintance are organized under a set of college sports topic headings. Rather than the usual “economics” topics (demand, supply, market structure, labor, business and government), the aim is to inform a more general audience. There is no claim to exhaustive coverage and no detailed review of any topic that would guide future research. Instead, it is hoped that the list is helpful to those wishing to simply delve into economics offerings under topic headings that match a reader’s interest.
