Richard Pomfret

This chapter examines the origins of modern professional sports, and the increase in the geographical scope of professional sports in the second half of the twentieth century, associated with radio and TV and air transport. It analyzes the distribution of the large rents being generated from sports as a result of these historical trends, as well as the professionalization of management and use of big data to improve sporting performance and to increase the size of revenues or influence distribution of rents. Sports industries have often obtained general exemptions from competition policy, workplace rules, and other regulations, as well as attracting state spending both in support of professional sports and associated with the mega-events controlled by monopolies such as the International Olympics Committee, FIFA or Formula One car racing, whose governance has been associated with corrupt practices. The final section offers concluding observations.

Constructing a Market Economy

Diverse Paths from Central Planning in Asia and Europe

Richard Pomfret

During the 1990s over two dozen countries in Europe and Asia underwent a transition from centrally planned to more market-oriented economies. In Constructing a Market Economy, Richard Pomfret reviews their diverse experiences and assesses the outcome of transition in each case. The book includes an extensive review of empirical evidence and, uniquely, aims to cover all the transition economies in a comparative fashion rather than focusing on any particular country.
