This is a level two course that explores the analytical frameworks used by Economists in assessing the impact and value-added of sport development, sports infrastructure and sporting events. The Economics of Sport has become a major area of research in Economics as a complement to research in Sport in the areas of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminology thereby making it an important public policy issue. This course requires students to engage the international literature with a critical eye and with a view to assessing the various sporting events and developmental strategies pursued within the Caribbean and more specifically in Jamaica.
