About this product
- DescriptionA wealth of research in recent decades has seen the ecomic approach to human behavior extended over many areas previously considered to belong to sociology, political science, law, and other fields. Research has also shown that ecomics can provide insight into many aspects of sports, including soccer. Beautiful Game Theory is the first book that uses soccer to test ecomic theories and document vel human behavior. In this brilliant and entertaining book, Ignacio Palacios-Huerta illuminates ecomics through the world's most popular sport. He offers unique and often startling insights into game theory and microecomics, covering topics such as mixed strategies, discrimination, incentives, and human preferences. He also looks at finance, experimental ecomics, behavioral ecomics, and neuroecomics. Soccer provides rich data sets and environments that shed light on universal ecomic principles in interesting and useful ways. Essential reading for students, researchers, and sports enthusiasts, Beautiful Game Theory is the first book to show what soccer can do for ecomics.
