  1. You clearly haven’t studied the undisputed economic benefits of holding the games (see http://www.pages.drexel.edu/~rosenl/sports%20Folder/Economic%20Impact%20of%20Olympics%20PWC.pdf)

    One of the post-olympic economic benefits (among many achieved by Sydney holding the Olympics) is the time it takes to travel by train from Sydney to Newcastle is now slower than it was in the 1930’s.

    So enjoy the festivities while you can. If Sydney and Atlanta are anything to go by it will take a least a decade to recover from the hangover.
