Ryan Leary's insight:

I feel that every business owner or manager should consider this strategy of working with their employees to try and better the experience. This has to do with concession stands at a stadium and the manager trying to improve upon it.

This article explains how the state legislation wants to approve a tax that would give the Miami Dolphins football statium $400 million dollars to improve their stadium. I found this article interesting because it showed the banter between politicians and blue collar workers and how they thought the money could be used elswehere. It relates closely to opportunity costs which were explained in our book.
