The olympic motto is ”Citius, altius, fortius” – faster, higher, stronger. You can add a word: expensive.
have pulled over their budget as a gambling Las Vegas-a tourist with my dad's credit card. The winter games in Sochi in 2014 would have cost 10 billion dollars, the bill climbed to more than 50. The summer olympics in Rio two years later, had a budget of 14 billion, cost 20. And so on.
the Figures come from a report by the Council on foreign relations, which also affirms: ”the OLYMPIC games in Los Angeles 1984 were the only games that gave surplus, thanks in large part to the city could rely on the existing infrastructure.”
that would fit very well on OS 2026 reads ”this time it's different”. Now namely the International olympic committee arrived at a supersmart model that allows the organising country and the city will not have to pay a thing. Brilliant!
For a bit of snow is a disaster for the games, too much make chaos with all who visit them.
Peter Reinebo, head of division at the Swedish olympic committee (SOK), told TV4 that the OS will be a pure special assistant": ”these games will not affect the taxpayer, without adding to the taxpayers.”
Then there is the question of why the government must go into with the warranty at all. Private actors should climb on each other to invest in this profit maker on skis.
in the OLYMPIC repertoire would arrangörsländerna have a guaranteed gold. The applications are characterized always by galloping so-called ”optimism bias” where the profits are overstated and the risks blundas for.
What, for example, the government guaranteed the security cost in the terrorism era?
And what resources will be added on to keep out the snow at the right level – too little is a disaster for the games, too much make chaos with all who visit them?
it is a city where the metro is standing still, the commuter is set, the escalators cannot be repaired in months, buses slip as the injured moose in the icy upward slant, and gaturöjningen fail as surely as the slush follows snow.
the Infrastructure is not in the vicinity of to withstand even warm winters, with the existing population. Add to that the 700 000 tourists, which is expected to come to an OLYMPICS and to think about what would happen if the capital is hit by a several-day chaos as during the corresponding weeks in the year.
Congratulations to the OLYMPIC competitor Milano, the government Leaves threw itself right up and TORE the Black Peter from your välmanikyrerade Italian hands.
