The use of sports settings is a novel approach in Economics that is gaining substantial attention in the literature. This course will go over a number of important research contributions in Economics that have been recently obtained in sports settings. These contributions have pushed the frontier of our knowledge, for instance, by providing the first test of a theory or the first or best empirical evidence of an economic phenomenon. Similarly, it will also go over research that shows what economics can do for sports. Economics is an approach to human behavior that is not only applicable but can also turn out to be very useful to study human behavior in sports settings and generate novel insights.
