  • The (Peculiar) Economics of NCAA Basketballby T. McFall

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2014; US$ 95.58

    The economics of the NCAA Division I men's basketball league are peculiar because it fails to hire the best college-aged players and does little to enhance competitive balance within the league.
