Description

“Stadiums, Mega-Events, and Public Finance Follies” with Victor Matheson ‘91. Victor Matheson specializes in sports economics, specifically the economic impact of “mega-sporting events” on host cities; public finance; the economics of lotteries and gambling; and natural resource economics. In particular, his sports economics research, which dispels the notion that major events equal large economic dividends for host cities have made him a widely sought-after expert. Victor is the author of “A Fall Classic? Assessing the Economic Impact of the World Series” published in the International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing, and co-author (with Anthony Becker) of the book The Sports Law Casebook: Milestones in Sports Recognition.
