Abstract:
A fortnight-long extravaganza of sporting events, records, medals and tears, mesmerised audience, spectacular stadiums, floodlit-bathed city centers, folks from across the globe, scintillating structures and breathtaking moments. Thus goes the description of the Olympics for the general audience. However, for the economists, it translates into billions of dollars invested in infrastructure and thereby injecting a growth pill into the economy.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the short and the long- term economic benefits that prompt nations to bid for Olympics despite the colossal investments involved.
