    Jeanine Miklós-Thal and co-author Hannes Ullrich were looking for a way to test whether future career prospects affect current effort incentives when they hit upon the perfect testing ground: European soccer. “Soccer is a nice way to test these incentives,” says Miklós-Thal, assistant professor of economics and marketing at the Simon School. “You need an environment where some people have a chance to be promoted and others do not. You can’t test the same thing in a business environment.”
