About The Sports Economist

The Sports Economist is produced by a group of scholars who apply economic thinking to sports. Sports provide an entertaining and unique canvas for illustrating economic forces at work. We try and lend an assist to that at TSE.

The material is written for students, scholars, and fans who want to think about economics and sports. TSE provides commentary and links to issues in the news, along with an occasional essay.

The site was founded by Clemson Professor Raymond Sauer, aka Skip, in February 2004. The Sports Economist became a multi-author blog in January 2005.
