Why doesn't the United States dominate soccer internationally...and how can it? Which is the best soccer nation on Earth? Who has the most passionate fans? What impact does soccer have on suicide rates? Which sport will dominate the Earth? NFL or the English Premier League? Why are the people who run soccer clubs so dumb? These are some of the questions that every soccer fanatic has asked. "Soccernomics" answers them. Written with an economist's brain and a sports writer's skill, it applies high-powered analytical tools to everyday soccer topics, looking at data in new ways, revealing counterintuitive truths about the world's most loved game. It all adds up to a revolutionary way of looking at soccer that could affect the way the game is played internationally.
