Objectives To examine the determinants of the duration time of drivers in the Formula One (F1) competition, which is an industry with high physical capital investment and requires labor with very high human capital. Methods Since estimates may be biased when the whole F1 history, starting with the 1950 season, is considered, unlike prior studies i...

This is all the more important in the sporting world with a further emphasis on the everyday Turkish woman.

The year 2020 met us with the COVID-19 pandemic. The covid-19 pandemic has gone past a mere health challenge. Its effect can be felt in the economy and society in general. Women form a large chunk of the response efforts geared at flattening the curve of the COVID-19 scourge. As the first point of contact, caregivers, medical personnel, volunteers,...
Article
Professional soccer is the world’s most popular sport; a number of National Leagues are under the control of National Associations. The economic theory behind soccer is the continuing competition to earn much more than other sports do in the sports market. Since the supply of talent is limited, teams’ demand for certain professionals is so strong t...

Formula One (F1), the top tier auto racing organization of the fastest cars, is followed by billions of people on TV. Since the first drivers' championship in Formula One in 1950, more than 180 teams waved the red flag, i.e., exited Formula One, before the flagman waved the chequered flag-the sign of successful completion of a race. The purpose of...

Throughout the years, women have suffered from oppression delivered by the male chauvinism. This maltreatment was present in every aspect of life, and surf was no exception. Since surfing has existed, it has been thought to be a sport just for men. Has this misconception driven women to avoid the sport at all costs for several years or dedicate the...

This study identifies the determinants of the sporting performance of countries at the Mediterranean Games. Performance is measured by the share of medals won in each Mediterranean Games, rather than total number of medals, since the total number of medals available has increased substantially over time. Tobit estimation is employed for all 16 Medi...
Article

Numerous prior studies have attempted to ascertain the determinants of Olympic medals awarded. Most studies have found that population and GDP were positively related to the number of Olympic medals awarded. The present study generally confirms these earlier results. In addition, lagged values of medals awarded were also significant, suggesting tha...

All of the work done on the roommates problem, a one-sided matching market, is either studying the existence of a stable matching or searching for an efficient algorithm. This paper departs from the main stream of this literature and analyzes via simulations the effect of correlation in the preference lists on the aggregate satisfaction of the part...
Article
Since it was first introduced in 1962, matching theory has been very well studied in all aspects but one, namely correlation in the preference lists. This missing factor in the preferences might cause underestimation in the results of the studies on the matching markets. Moreover, it might be misleading in the analysis and the evaluation of the mar...
Article
Full-text available
Authors of experimental, empirical, theoretical and computational studies of two-sided matching markets have recognized the importance of correlated preferences. We develop a general method for the study of the effect of correlation of preferences on the outcomes generated by two-sided matching mechanisms. We then illustrate our method by using it...
Article
Full-text available
Despite an extensive literature exploring two-sided matching problems, there remains much to learn about even the simplest marriage matching model. We adopt as our primary tool a simple measure of how well men do and how well women do under a given matching, and use this tool to demonstrate that a group with randomly generated preferences does very...
