Victor Matheson, professor of economics at the College of the Holy Cross, agrees with her. “Any bid that would make economic sense would never win,” he says.
“It’s [Boston hosting the 2024 Olympics] a major long shot,” Matheson says. Hosting the Olympics is an awfully expensive way to get infrastructure done. And while having a sword — or five rings — hanging over your head might be good motivation to get projects finished, it can also lead to problems. In Rio, which will host this year’s World Cup and the 2016 Games, projects are being rushed and are coming in over budget.
