The Wage Premium of Two-footed Footballers

The study of football Ð the clubs, the players, the managers, the referees<br />

Ð is telling us more and more about the operation of labour markets and<br />

incentives. Here, Alex Bryson and colleagues show that two-footedness<br />

Ð the rare ability to use both feet equally well to pass, tackle and shoot Ð<br />

commands a large wage premium.
