Winter Olympics have never been my jam. Maybe it’s because I’m from Hawaii and I used to be a gymnast when I was younger (if you can call it that) or maybe it’s because I hate being cold and (not-so-) silently judge everyone who voluntarily spends more time than absolutely necessary in the snow. I don’t know. But I’ve never been that keen on them. (But Boyfriend loves them so what can I do?)
But as an economics major, I don’t see snowboarding and bob-sledding anymore. I see a mega-event. And economists have mixed emotions about those. Easy there, don’t start begging – I’ll tell you why.
I’ll give you the cliff notes version (if you want the extended version, you know all you have to do is ask).
