Applied Economics Letters, 1995, vol. 2, issue 7, 220-222

Abstract: Carmichael and Thomas (1993) recently examined the transfer market for association football within a Nash bargaining framework, and explored empirically some of the determinants of association football transfer prices for the 1990-91 English league season. The purpose of this paper is to examine the role exerted by race in the determination of association football transfer prices. Using data from the 1991-92 English league season, transfer price equations are estimated to establish if black players encounter unequal treatment in the transfer market.
