The Economic Effects of Professional Sports in America

REMI Webinar


As spring arrives and the fervor left over from college basketball subsides, Americans change their focus to baseball’s opening day, basketball’s playoffs, and football’s draft. The excitement and glitz of these events often overshadow the overall influence of these industries on their communities and the nation as a whole. In this presentation, we will examine the far reaching impacts of professional sports, ranging from regional employment to tourism. We will also look at counterfactual simulations to gauge the economic impact of our favorite pastimes and engage in a discussion of modeling strategies.

Finally, you will have a chance to engage in Q&A after the presentation.

This presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it at no charge via the Citrix GotoWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click on one of the links in the sidebar to register online.
