“Beautiful Game Theory”

That is the title of this book which explores the relation between economics and football (or soccer, for sportifs in the US) and which we will be reading in the coming days … between first-stage matches, that is. “Beautiful Game Theory” was written by Ignacio Palacios-Huerta, a professor at the London School of Economics, who builds on some of his previous work, such as “Professionals Play Minimax“, and uses football to test various theories of economics. We are especially interested in Chapter 3 of his book “Lessons for Experimental Design.”
