American labour market v cricket debut analysis

I'm a fan of the Freakonomics books and their latest piece of Freakonomics analysis assesses the impact of getting the right first job on your future career prospects by looking at how player's faired on Test cricket debut and whether they played home or away....

I did consider commenting about how much luck there is involved in poor umpiring decisions or dropped catches etc, but decided to leave the brakes on that particular bandwaggon this time!
