Notes
  • The economic benefits of hosting mega-sporting events are often exaggerated. "Ex-ante" impact studies typically overestimate the gains and underestimate the costs involved. It is therefore difficult to explain in economic terms the intense competition among cities to hold such events. Copyright (c) 2009 The Author.
