America Has a Stadium Problem
Pacific Standard
CVM asks people a hypothetical question: suppose their local team was going to move if they didn't get a new arena.
Al Franklin's insight:

This is how teams hold city's and states hostage. Threatening to move and relocate the team if they don't get new stadiums. There's a lot that goes into getting new stadiums, planning, location funding, subsidies. The sticking point is usually money and using public subsidies to pay for the new stadiums. Some city's would rather let the sports team leave than fork over millions of dollars that they have to front and will never get back to keep a team that really isn't that good. But the question would be if they are that good and its time to upgrade still where does the funding come from? I think the team and owners should bite off a bigger piece of the pie and concede more funds generated back to the city.

What's the total price tag on Harbor Point's public subsidies?
Al Franklin's insight:

The public's concern on buidling onto the inner harbor in baltimore show's that we still don't like to use public funds for city projects. The prices of these subsidies and the realization that most of these funds will not be returned to the tax payer and are they really worth it?

That same argument is used to justify subsidies for stadium projects all over America, but some folks don't buy it.
Al Franklin's insight:

Detroit now in the mist of bankruptcy are wondering how to pay for new sports arena with publics funds when there are no funds period. I can say that this will not happen and would be a big risk because of the current state of their financial situation. This is the exact reason the public doesn't like using public funds because other policys and programs suffer.

Risk Talk on mega events - planning for the unforeseeable

23 Jan 2013
Organised by: Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue

 

The Risk Talk series organised by the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue brings together international experts and practitioners to discuss current and future economic, political and societal risks and opportunities.

 

What is a mega event? They can be defined as “short-term events with long-term consequences for the cities that stage them … associated with the creation of infrastructure and event facilities often carrying long-term debt and always requiring long-term use programming.” The general public knows mega events by names such as the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, Street Parade and Züri Fäscht. How do you plan for and mitigate against risks for such an event?

 

The Centre is pleased to present experts on the organisational, risk management and crowd control aspects of planning and running mega events. Of equal concern is the fact that mega events are becoming ever more commercial. This development prompts organisers and sponsors to protect valuable brands and related content through the use of intellectual property law (eg trademarks, copyright). Using logos, photographs and even mere words without obtaining the rights can infringe upon them and cause problems for corporations and individuals alike.

 

The presenters at the Risk Talk are:

Alexander Koch, Deputy Head Corporate Communications, FIFA
Will Jennings, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Southampton
Dirk Helbing, Professor of Sociology, Modeling and Simulation, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich)

 

Donatella Fiala & Ivan Mijatovic, Senior IP Counsel at Swiss Re will be the co-moderators for the event.

Al Franklin's insight:

A lot of planning goes into risk management. From this article we can see that the risks are studied from many angles from finance to security and planning.

A study conducted over two years by the National Research Council has concluded that subsidies for green energy have had close to zero effect in reducing.
Al Franklin's insight:

Looking at this article one could draw the consclusion that going green does not help with emissions and pollution. But we are just starting and doing nothing would be the greatest failure ever.
