This article mentions how a "scheme" to fund the Vikings' stadium fell through and now the Minnesota taxpayers will have to "bail out" the stadium. It is interesting because the scheme that fell through is one that was not mentioned in our textbook.

I wish I had found this article earlier. It touches on some key points on why public subsidies are not beneficial to the community. Also, it mentions how some companies do not take all factors into consideration when they assess subsidy effects on a community.

Massive Green Building Projects Aim to Create a Sustainable 2014 World Cup

Massive Green Building Projects Aim to Create a Sustainable 2014 World Cup | Sports Facility Management 4234857 | Scoop.it

For the 2014 World Cup, Brazil will roll out impressive facilities that could score LEED certification and add to its rich modern architecture legacy.

Describing any massive construction project as “green” is a stretch, especially when it comes to sports facilities. But in football-mad Brazil, plans for a bevy of new and refurbished football stadia for the 2014 World Cup are well underway.

Brazil's projects could both score international green building certifications such as LEED while adding to the country’s rich modern architecture legacy. Much of the credit for Brazil’s greening of the World Cup goes to Vicente Mello and Ian McKee, two architects who drafted the CopaVerde plan, which advocates for the most responsible construction practices possible for the event’s venues...

What a building!  Everyone is getting on board with Green Buildings and LEED certifications.  Turner is also on the Green and LEED Certified train. It's the new IN thing. 

Kenneth Hadden Miller's curator insight, April 26, 2015 3:56 AM

An earlier scoop showed the issues that Rio was going to have with disabled patrons who attend the 2016 Olympic Games.  This is a bit more positive as it shows the green facilities that were created or rebuilt for the 2014 World Cup.  One of these even had its own solar power plant, which is extremely impressive!

Maybe nine out of ten economists agree, but one out of one here thinks along with the nine; subsidies only help owners and players, not the little people that have to pay for it.
