A Closer Look at Stadium Subsidies — The American Magazine | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

"The typical economic impact study gathers data on all aspects of spending related to a stadium, including the money spent to build it and the money spent by fans in connection with the stadium (including on tickets, at restaurants, and at hotels). The impact of this spending ripples outward into other areas of the economy through a multiplier. By linking spending to employment, the study then calculates how many jobs a stadium has created. It does not perform a cost-benefit analysis, which would address the opportunity costs of raising taxes to pay for a stadium and consider alternative uses of those funds."

I absolutely love this idea, reason being that it will save Americans money by going green. The more engery we conserve, the money in our wallets, the more we recycle the less we have to put out for new bottles and other things of that nature. Going green is the way to go!

This is a popular article on how far security officers have taken the issue of security at a major event. Is this taking it too far. I believe so. There are other ways to maintain a crowd.
