New article on the Olympics

My latest article for FEE is “Cities Can’t Win the Olympics — They Can Only Lose.” I don’t get to pick the titles for my articles, but this one isn’t bad. The piece is about how disastrous the Olympic Games are for the people they displace; public landmarks are shut away, the city is militarized, and the locals are left paying for the cost overruns. Most people in Boston don’t want the 2024 bid, and they’re fighting back and winning.

As with all my articles for FEE, I’m grateful if people share the link and get it more readers.
