The Economic Dimension
- 73 Downloads
Many experts have written about the economics of mega-events. As a result of their impact and how important they are for the sake of final evaluation, we should like to present the Barcelona Olympics from not only the analytical point of view but also in relation with other dimensions. According to Chappelet (2008), the most common criticism of the Games is that their total cost is very high. Indeed, this is the objective of this chapter: namely, to address the economic dimension of the Barcelona’92 Olympic Games. Our proposal to cover the basic contents will be based on the economic model, the economic situation at that time, the economic impact and tourism, and the perception impact.
