Money Talks: Doctor of Soccernomics

On this episode of Money Talks, Mo is joined by the co-author of Soccernomics and Professor of Sport Management at the University of Michigan, Dr. Stefan Szymanski. A wide variety of subjects relating to the economics of football are discussed, including FSG's operating model, John W. Henry's views on sports ownership, the concept of financial self-sustainability, the European Super League, why the Boehly consortium invested as much as they did to take over Chelsea, broadcast rights, player wages, the merits (or otherwise) of incentived contracts, the transfer system plus more besides. Immensely educational as well as thought-provoking, this is essential listening.
