Patrick Rishe, PhD
Professor of Economics

Patrick Rishe, PhD, professor of economics at Webster University’s George Herbert Walker School of Business, has earned his fourth publication of 2014 for the paper, “How Event Significance, Pent-up Demand, Playoff Saturation and Fan Euphoria Can Impact Baseball’s Postseason Secondary Market Behavior.” Rishe penned this paper with co-authors Dr. Brett Boyle of Saint Louis University and Jason Reese of Stephen F. Austin University. Their paper will appear in the Journal of Sports Management and Commercialization. Earlier works by Rishe in 2014 appeared in Sport Marketing Quarterly and the International Journal of Sport and Society.

In addition to his publication success, Rishe has been retained to assess the economic impact of the 2014 Quick Lane College Bowl game, which will be played in Detroit, Michigan on December 26. The City of Williamsburg, Virginia has also tendered his services to assess the economic impact of various large youth sporting events hosted by the region.

A recognized expert in the field of sports economics, Rishe continued his recent string of high-profile media engagements with an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on November 20.  The discussion centered around recent debate regarding the merits of widespread legalization of sports betting.
