Abstract

This chapter reexamines the impact of cultural and language diversity on the production of winning hockey games to discern the underlying source(s) driving the effects. It makes inferences based on various analyses of micro-level data that include information relating to player interactions, which suggest that the diversity effects are a result of lower off-ice communication costs rather than reduced cultural dominance of the domestic group or on-ice synergies amongst homogeneous players. The inferences are of general interest to managerial economists who can increase firm-level productivity by hiring employees that speak similar languages and share ideas regardless of their cultural background.
