Who Are the Real Winners and Losers of the Olympics?

by Viva Avasthi

A very thorough video created by The Economist to provide a useful overview of the impacts of the London Olympics 2012. It is definitely worth watching the entirety of this video as it makes the impacts on many types of people very clear.

 In my opinion, the point made in this video about how there are no children's pools in the Olympics stadium is a particularly relevant one considering that schools are supposedly going to be making use of the Olympic venues in the future! Could this be seen as a sign that the legacy of the Olympics has not been very well planned by the government, despite what they say?

What do you think of the idea of The Teen Economists authors making their own videos in this way?

Please comment below and tell me if you would like to see more of these types of videos on the blog.
