Sport and economy are connected! And here’s how it works.

It is not an everyday occasion that the historical development of sport is considered by economic historians. But a new anthology, Sports Through the Lens of Economic History by Richard Pomfret & John K. Wilson (Edward Elgar) aims at filling that gap. Not bad, concedes our reviewer Susanna Hedenborg; still, a wider geographical scope would have increased the efficacy of the this rather slim volume.
