This capstone analyzes the for-profit resale market for tickets to large concerts in British Columbia and identifies policy options that address this public policy problem. Following a brief background on the subject in British Columbia, this capstone advances through a mixed-methods research methodology consisting of an academic literature review, case study analysis, qualitative analysis, and quantitative analysis. From this research base the capstone then outlines three policy options: the status quo, prohibition, and regulating the for-profit resale market. Five criteria are established against which the options are evaluated, and the option of regulating the for-profit resale market for tickets to large concerts in two phases is recommended.
