The Economics of the Super Bowl

Roy GreenI’ll be on The Roy Green Show today, talking about the misleading economics of the Super Bowl.

In short, the NFL says the economic impact of hosting a Super Bowl is about $300 million. Serious sports economists say it’s closer to $30 million, for a whole host of reasons.

Tune in to find out why, on the Corus Radio Network in Canada at 3:30 p.m. EDT.

About Mark Yost
Mark Yost is the author of the Rick Crane Noir series, published by Stay Thirsty Press. Rick Crane is a classic, quirky private eye in the spirit of Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. He works in the unmistakably noirish underworld of Upstate New York, made dark by the economic decay and bleak winters that distinguish the region. And while he supplements his P.I. work by running errands and fixing problems for one of Upstate New York's most notorious crime bosses, readers quickly learn that deep down, Rick Crane is one of the good guys. The first book in the series is "Cooper's Daughter," a fast-moving tale in which a heartbroken father comes to Rick and asks him to find out what really happened to his daughter, who was murdered and the details buried in the Unsolved Crimes File of the local police department. The second book in the series is "Jimmy's Nephew," which begins with the death of Joey "Boom Boom" Bonadeo, nephew of Rick's underworld boss, Jimmy Ricchiati Sr. What starts out as a routine investigation turns into a case that will test Rick's faith -- in the Catholic Church and his fellow man. Book No. 3 in the series, "Mary's Demise" is due out in July 2015. Mark Yost also writes for The Wall Street Journal Arts in Review page, as well as the Book Review section. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America -- Midwest Chapter, International Thriller Writers, and a number of other author groups. He is also a member of the Amazon Author's Program. Mark lives in the Loyola neighborhood of Chicago, but he and his son, George, call the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn "home."
