MLS Talk Podcast: Joel Maxcy, on MLS Labor Issues


In the second of three podcasts Major League Soccer Talk will be devoting to collective bargaining and labor negotiations, I was joined by Joel Maxcy.

Joel is an Associate Professor at the University of Georgia where he also serves as the Sports Management Program’s coordinator. He has a Ph.D. in economics from Washington State University, and his research interests include labor economics, sports law, and antitrust.

We start this podcast by picking-up on the American Needle case but eventually transition into talk of single-entity and its effects on incentives to compete.
