Matthew Kiefer on the Right Questions about the Olympics

Matthew Kiefer (LF ’96 and UPD visiting lecturer on land use planning) and his co-author Samuel Tyler, president of the Boston Municipal Research Bureau, point out that contrary to what we’ve been reading in the media, the questions about financing for the 2024 Olympics are more complex than public versus private funding. They argue that the expenses for operations, venues and infrastructure entail different considerations, and they suggest metrics for making the judgments. And they propose that Boston residents and Olympic bid organizers address one other question: “how the Games can help us become the city we aspire to be.” Read "What we should be asking about Boston’s Olympics bid."
