Blogging from Portland

The Western Economic Association, International conference is taking place in Portland right now.  Besides being an excellent regional economics conference, the Westerns also serve as the annual meeting of the North American Association of Sports Economists (NAASE), and represents one of the largest gatherings of sports economists in the world.  TSE co-bloggers Dennis Coates, Stefan Szymanski, Victor Matheson, and I are all here at the conference.  NAASE organized 16 sessions of sports economics research this year, including 63 papers.

I’ll try and provide some updates from the conference, which kicks off this morning at 8:15 with a session on “Measuring Performance in Sport.”

  1. If any of you sports economists care to chat, you are attending the event in my fair city. Contact me, and would be happy to meet for coffee.

  2. Maury,

    Sorry to get to your comment so late, after the conference was over! I wasn’t there but appreciate your suggestion, as I’m sure others do as well.
