Angus returns to the NBA

Even though Bill Simmons has severely truncated me and Tyler's hustle, I still get to do some fun economics of sports stuff now and again.

Heres a link to the recording of my lengthy interview on BYU radio. We start at the 24 minute mark of the recording.

I try to explain increasing returns to talent, the median voter theorem, and the difficulties involved in getting people to pay for public goods, all in the context of why top NBA stars are likely underpaid.

I also enjoyed briefly getting to compare the socialist NFL to the much more Darwinian English Premier League.

Thanks to the folks at BYU radio for having me on.
