How Americans play baseball and the rest of the world plays soccer

how have baseball and soccer developed economically and socially around the world

Industrial economist and author specialising in the business of sport, Professor Stefan Szymanski takes a penetrating, if somewhat irreverent, look at how these two sports have developed economically and socially around the world. More and more premier soccer clubs are falling into American hands. Are they cash cows or are they being used in a global cultural war? What game will dominate the Chinese appetite for sport whetted by the Olympics? Who wins and loses economically at the Olympics?
