What are the costs and benefits of a Boston Olympics? – Metro – The Boston Globe

Olympics seems like a losing economic prospect, no matter how you slice it. We shouldn’t have to mount a massive, money-losing endeavor just to get the infrastructure upgrades we need now. We CAN invest in Massachusetts; we just need to find the political will. Talk to your legislators! From the Boston Globe:

If Boston is chosen as the official US nominee for the 2024 games, we’re likely to see a broader and more transparent public discussion, particularly since legislators will have to decide to commit taxpayer dollars to cover the likely cost overruns.

If, instead, Boston doesn’t take the gold in this competition, we can still enjoy the Olympics. We can even undertake massive construction projects, if we choose.
