‘I was an athlete masquerading as a student’

Daniel Rubinfeld quoted in The Chronicle of Higher Education, June 10, 2014

Mr. Hausfeld showed excerpts of a book by Daniel Rubinfeld, an economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley, describing the association as a “cartel organization” with a “persistently high level of profits” inconsistent with competition. According to one excerpt, Mr. Rubinfeld once wrote that, to reduce the bargaining power of athletes, the NCAA creates and enforces rules regarding eligibility and terms of compensation.
