Handbook on the economics of discrimination (Book, ) [iamccc.com]This book is the second volume of the two-volume The Oxford Handbook of the Economics of Sports which includes articles by nearly all of the important authors in the quickly growing field of sports economics. The two volumes consider in depth the ways that economics and sports interact with each other. To start with, economic analysis has helped with the understanding of many of the different institutions in sports. Secondly, quality data about individual productivity, salaries, career histories, teamwork, and managerial behavior has been useful in helping economists study topics as varied as the economics of discrimination, salary dispersion, and antitrust policy. The volumes are also rich from the point of view of the sports fan. Every major team sport is covered, and many interesting comparisons can be made especially between the North American League organization and the European-style promotion and relegation leagues. Keywords: sports economics , economic analysis , salaries , managerial behavior , discrimination , salary dispersion , antitrust policy , team sport , North American League , European leagues.

Using the statistical theory of discrimination, we argue that initial wage offers may be lower for minority workers, but that wage differences for a given level of productivity should diminish with the worker's job tenure. If a wage subsidization policy is designed so that initial wage offers are equal for majority and minority workers and is maintained for a time period sufficient to demonstrate true productivity, then wage differences for a given level of productivity should disappear. We also provide an empirical test of the effectiveness of such a policy by using a sample of participants in a government job program that enforced equal wage schedules for White and Black workers. Our results show that measured discrimination declined among program participants, supporting the hypothesis that wage subsidies would be an effective anti-discrimination policy.
