An Economic Analysis of the Subjective Health and Well-being of Physical Activity
Paul Downward and
Simona Rasciute ()
Chapter 2 in The Economics of Sport, Health and Happiness, 2011 from Edward Elgar Publishing
Including an array of distinguished contributors, this novel book fills a gap in the literature by addressing an important, yet under-researched, issue in the field of sports economics. It places great emphasis on the notion that sport is a significant component for improving the happiness, health and well-being of citizens, communities and society as a whole. In so doing, it addresses whether, in an environment of increasing pressure on public spending, governments should continue to subsidize sporting activities at the expense of other public resources.
