European soccer followed an open-league system: clubs could be promoted or demoted between the premier and secondary national leagues according to performance. Even within premier leagues, clubs often varied greatly in terms of wealth and prestige. Unlike the U.S. sports model generally characterized by some redistribution of economic resources and player talent to maintain competitive balance, European soccer had relatively few regulations to interfere with free market principles.

Introduction: A senior executive from Sun Microsystems, after staying at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Vancouver, congratulated the hotel’s vice-president and general manager, Steve Halliday, on how well his staff read her mind.
