We welcome David Berri as a contributor to The Sports Economist. Dave is Associate Professor of Economics at Cal State Bakersfield, and is a prolific contributor to the literature on Sports Economics. With coauthors Martin Schmidt and Stacey Brook, he's the author of the forthcoming (in May) book, The Wages of Wins: Taking Measure of the Many Myths in Modern Sport.
Wages of Wins is published by Stanford University Press, and has been endorsed by Alan Schwarz as "some of the most intelligent yet readable sports analysis I've seen in a long time." Intelligent and readable describes Dave's body of work in general, and it is great to see more members of the Econ tribe place their work in accessible form for a general audience. Welcome aboard, Dave!
