Christopher Decker, Ph.D., Lucas Diamond Professor of Economics, University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) College of Business Administration, answers the question: “What kind of economic impact does the cancellation of March Madness, the College World Series and many fall sports have on our state and is the impact statewide or limited to Omaha and Lincoln?”
An expert in areas that include microeconomics, business economics, economic forecasting, and natural resource economics, Decker has discussed with media the economic impact of events in the Omaha area such as the College World Series. Decker has also partnered with several organizations to conduct economic assessments and forecasts of city and regional economies, including the production of a large number of economic impact studies using IMPLAN.
