Episode 118: Ian Fillmore - Economist and co-author of Technological Change and Obsolete Skills: Evidence from Men’s Professional Tennis

February 4, 2019

What effect does technology have on golf? Maybe the question lies not in golf but elsewhere...

Economist Ian Fillmore joins us to discuss how the change from wooden racquets to composite racquets in tennis parallels the game of golf. Ian is an associate professor at Washington University of St. Louis and earned his PHD from the University of Chicago. You can read he and Jonathan Hall's paper Technological Change and Obsolete Skills: Evidence from Men’s Professional Tennis (link) and follow his website (link).
