Professor Sagers Publishes Op-Ed in Plain Dealer

Professor Chris Sagers published an op-ed in the October 30 edition of the Plain Dealer entitled “Why fans can’t win when it comes to buying concert, game tickets.” 

In this op-ed, Professor Sagers criticizes ticketing policies for major sports/concert events by big ticketing companies, such as Ticketmaster and Veritix.  These ticketing companies already controlled initial ticket sales, but are now attempting to control ticket re-sales as well.  According to Sagers, “[t]he end result will likely be higher ticket prices all around. ”  Sagers thus argues that policy makers should step in, to prevent further abuses and ensure that healthy competition regarding ticket re-sales continues.
