Recent media coverage featuring Webster University faculty includes:

Rishe on Euro 12

For its article on the economic impact of this month’s Euro 12 tournament, The Hollywood Reporter turned to sports economics expert Patrick Rishe, associate professor in Webster University’s George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology.

van Marissing on Dutch Beer Competition

Monday, June 4, Jean Paul van Marissing was interviewed live on Business News radio, the most important radio station for business in the Netherlands, for his assessment of the news that the biggest Dutch beer brewers  – including Heineken – are being sued for participating in a beer cartel.

van Marissing is director of Webster University’s campus in Leiden, the Netherlands.

The European Commission already imposed more than 250-million-euro fines on the beer brewers for illegal antitrust practices — representing public enforcement. Now in a private enforcement measure, a Dutch association of pubs, restaurants and hotels are submitting the case to a court so that individual companies, who suffered from the cartel, will be able to claim damages.

Business News radio turned to van Marissing for the 15-minute interview because antitrust policy is his field of expertise.
