"mandalit" Discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money
"N. p. r. this the indicator from planet money. I'm stacey vanik smith. The olympics is wrapping up this weekend and this has been a strange olympics. Nobody in the stands kovin spreading through the olympic village protests in tokyo while. I'm in my tiny tiny hotel room which I can't even stretch my arms out to yoga in the hallway. It's only a few steps away. it's It's very very tiny. Our own mandalay. Del barco has been reporting on the olympics for npr from tokyo. It's been very interesting and strange and kind of humbling to be here as a journalist as well. There's not a lot of us here kind of a lonely olympics. I should say mandalit says these olympics have also been marked by all these protests a lot of them over the cost of this olympic games which is one of the most expensive olympics on record. I know cost a lot to put these Olympic games on and the some of the venues were or the venues were paid for by tax dollars here in japan largely so i think there was a lot of feelings about that but here tokyo is in the majority cities that host the olympics. Almost always lose money on it. So why did they do it today. On the show we take a look at the costs and benefits of hosting the olympics. Right after the break this message comes from. Npr sponsor fund rise making investing in private real estate as easy as investing in stocks bonds or mutual funds build a more diversified portfolio today at fundraise f. u. n. d. r. i s. e. dot com slash indicator.

What's in your wallet. Terms and conditions apply more at capital. One dot com slash auto navigator. We're joined by kenneth shropshire. Ceo of global sport institute at arizona state university and victor matheson professor of economics at college holy cross in massachusetts. So victor let's start with you. How much did the summer games cost. The olympics in tokyo were hugely problematic from an economic standpoint way before kovin hit so they originally had a price tag of seven point. Three billion dollars. That's a lot of money just to start with. But those numbers had risen to fifteen and a half billion dollars officially and over twenty five billion dollars. Unofficially by december twenty nineteen so before a single person in japan ever got sick from cova. Did we already had an olympic games that we were looking at a twenty five billion dollar price tag and there's just simply no way that the money amount of money generate from the olympics can possibly cover those sort of classes. Okay kenneth. i'm gonna throw this question to you. Which is i think the question that always comes into my head about the olympics. Why does anyone want to host the olympics. This is extenuating circumstances but it seems like almost every single city that's ever the olympics has lost money sometimes. There are like political issues that happen. I mean why does anyone want to host the olympics. Chroma sofas devil's advocate. I love it. Devil's advocate but it is the or of that brings to your community. It's what it brings to your city. You are mexico city in nineteen sixty eight. And you want the world to know that. Latin america's a place to go to your tokyo and sixty four where maybe it made more cincinnati does today and you wanna know twenty years after world war two. This is a city. This is a country that part of the global community. If you're los angeles in eighty four. We're not just hollywood. Were part of the pacific rim. So it's so it's big issues like that and it's infra cities who are the ones had been on this. It is like building infrastructure. It's like building roads and highways and parks. And the like but this is this is not a mutual fund where there's a return on investment and victor. What is your take on this issue. I mean from what i understand. It's very rare for cities to be able to make money on the olympics. I think one of the few was los angeles in nineteen eighty-four right so first of all los angeles was just a very remarkable and unique situation. And what had happened. There is that los angeles was left as the only bidder. Back in one thousand nine hundred four for the games and when you're the only bidder of course you can dictate the terms of the bid to the i o c. Rather than the other way around and so they said. Hey we'd we'd love to host the games but we're not building new facilities you can use the rose bowl you can use the coliseum. These facilities that even then we're already over fifty years old and when you do that you can really keep those costs down. A worth of the info four olympics in my youth. I ran the sport of boxing initially sponsorship in licey. yes. I did sponsors licensing. I am forced gulf so. La was that unique situation. Ironically there was one city that was still bidding theron and that was during the hostage crisis so wisely there was the decision. Well we will include them in this conversation and so la have this tremendous leverage. Is there a kind of kenneth mentioned. Is they're kind of like a softer sort of pay off. I mean is there like a payoff in like maybe not right away but in like visibility for your city long-term tourism on the answer for that is yes and that's of course what we call the legacy effect right and you can have a couple of kinds of legacy here number. One part of this is actually real infrastructure. You you make your roads better and you build your airport. Expansions and and both greece in rio have expanded subway systems. Thanks to the olympics. And then there's that lasting there's that intangible thing about becoming a major league city right or putting you're sitting on the map but even there requires a very unique situation. I think the best two examples of this. We have our barcelona which was kind of in the shadow of madrid and lesser known as a tourist destination it was about tenth or twelfth in in europe in tourist destination before the early nineteen ninety s After the olympics it's jumped into the top five and tourism in europe and so there's a good example Salt lake city also following the olympics. Ski visits to utah. Significantly outpace ski visits to colorado. So there's some legacy effect that you're getting out of these things. Are you guys going to be watching the olympics. I'm a big fan. I have devolved away a little bit. I was caught up old enough. Where the medal. Count things a big deal and we get more this. This media presentation the athlete back story than we had in the past. And you got so many options of ways to watch the good or bad thing now is you can almost watch every event if you want to as opposed to just wait and see what. Abc would share with you on a given day again. Some of these great powerful moments that you get from sport. That again is worth something.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be indicted on corruption charges
"Israel last night. The attorney general announced his intention to indict prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on charges of bribery fraud and breach of trust. When then Yahoo becomes the first sitting prime minister of Israel to be indicted, pending a hearing for criminal offenses Roger McShane Middle East editor, and it's happening less than sixty days before an election. Exactly as Mr Netanyahu alleged to have done. So the potential charges stem from three cases, I you have case one thousand where he's alleged received expensive gifts from wealthy patrons in return for political favors. Then you have case two thousand where he sent to discuss colluding with the newspaper publisher he was going to curb one of their papers competitors in return that paper was gonna tone down its negative coverage of him and the mysterious cases case four thousand in which she's accused of intervening and regulatory decisions in favor of a company called basic and one of the websites that basic owns was going to provide glowing coverage in return, right? And how strong is the case against him. The cases would seem to be pretty strong. They've been in the works for three years, some of Mr. Netanyahu's closest aides have turned state witness, and you have an attorney general Abaci mandalit who was appointed by Netanyahu who was once Netanyahu's. Cabinet secretary. This isn't a man who seems to be out to get Netanyahu. He's quite deliberative. And I don't think he would take a shot at a sitting prime minister if he thought he was going to miss, and what does Mr Netanyahu have to say about all this. So he says he's completely innocent. He says investigations are going to collapse like a house of cards. He calls the witch hunt. He says the reports are corruption are fake news. Is this sounds a little bit familiar? Yes. There are a lot of people who say that Netanyahu's adopting the rhetoric of Trump. In fact, Netanyahu was was first to adopt this type of rhetoric. He's long been able to harness the politics of resentment for his own political gain. He says division and Stokes fear in order to whip up his supporters, and frankly, he's much better at it than Donald Trump. What happens next end this pending a hearing stuff? So legally Netanyahu's lawyers will have a chance to dispute decision. That seems unlikely to six. Exceed then you'll get formal charges, and then you'll get a trial, politically, we're going to have an election on April ninth and right now Netanyahu's coalition of right-wing and nationalist parties, which still probably get a majority in the next Knesset. But a new party a centrist party called blue and white is leading in the polls, and is gaining it would seem, but a lot can change before election day, and probably will Roger thanks very much. Thank you. This news of the planned indictment comes just as Mr Netanyahu was hoping to win another election and become Israel's longest serving prime minister. He spent a total of thirteen years leading the country, and is known for his grandiose speeches together, we've transformed bludgeoned Jewish people left for dead into a vibrant, thriving nation defending itself with the courage of modern mccabe's, some of his critics say he has a belligerent foreign policy has fostered prejudice among Israelis and that he's been intransigent on the issue of seeking peace with Palestinians. UCLA? Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN in two thousand fifteen blamed mister Netanyahu for undermining efforts toward a two state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Assess to shut up. So how has mister Netanyahu changed Israel during his long rule? I think BB more than reshaping Israel has put Israel much more on a path towards being a divided successful yet, very exhibitions and almost info big society. Actual Feffer has written a biography of Mr Netanyahu and reports for the economist from Israel Netanyahu is unique so far in being the only prime minister of Israel to have been born after the state's foundation his formative years both as a teenager and young men were made in the United States. And then in many ways form the way, he makes politics, what can you tell me about his early life and how that shaped his politics later? Well, he was brought up in a very political home. His father was an ideologue and a journalist working for the revisionist movement, which is the branch of the right wing branch of Zionism. And that was the atmosphere which shouldn't and yeah, it was brought up and that was fear of very bleak. Nationalist, politics, and how did his political career start? Well, listen ya'll be became into the public eye at a relatively young age as the brother of Israel's great hero in ninety seventy six Colonel Jonathan to who was killed in the famous Entebbe raid and his brother was the only Israeli soldier killed in that, right? He was one of the commanders of that. Right. And that thrust the family into the into the public spotlight over the next few years as part of the commemoration of the dead, brother. They they set up a think tank and BB became a speaker on issues of counter-terrorism and at the young age of thirty two he was offered to become the number two at Israel's embassy in Washington five years later when he left when he left it lower c- to become a full-time liquid politician. He already had quite a high, name recognition and Israel. He had a very polished television. Performance. We not that many Israeli politicians had that time. Tell me about that. How did he come to have that polish wasn't the now's diplomatic and political roles before becoming Likud leader were involved in presenting Israel's case to the world. His main political role was as a deputy foreign minister and his brief was was made public diplomacy. That was the time of the first Gulf war and the scene that everyone remembers from that from that period isn't into now sitting in the C N N CNN's local studio in Jerusalem. Deputy foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is here with us during this rate Sumitomo and the into we're both sitting wearing gas masks during an air raid. I must say that this is the darnest way to conduct an interview and during his periods and power Wednesay had the most impact the main period, we continue I really has formed. Current Israel has been the last ten years in which he's been in power. He's won three consecutive elections in that time, and it's been a decade for for many aspects, a great decade for Israel. Israel's had uninterrupted economic growth. It's foreign relations of burgeon with countries from Africa to up to the theories to Latin America, even even Sunni Arab countries in the Middle East, which don't have diplomatic relations with Israel have improved that under the under the surface ties with Israel. They have a joint interest together into now in confronting Iran. For the first time in my lifetime. Many other states in the region. Recognize that Israel is not their enemy. They recognize that Israel is the ally. How have mister Netanyahu's US towards the Palestinians of all over? The course of his political career is used to have not vote in the course of his political career. If you read a book Netanyahu wrote twenty six years ago place among the nations, he explains then this was even before the Oslo process began he explains that the best solution for Israel is never to compromise with the Palestinians and allow them at the most to live in a semi autonomous and Claes in the West, Bank and Gaza never to allow them full state and to continue Israeli security control over the entire region. And as we've seen over the last ten years with into now in power he has paid lip service to the two-state solution. But in reality is nothing to go to good to go towards that solution, certainly not since Trump and to the White House. So a lot of. Have gone his way, but we're looking to an uncertain future here with us in indictment. If this is the end of his political career, what do you think is legacy will be slowly building and continuing to enhance Israel's perspective and military power. And it's relationships both in the region and across the world. Now, if it is forced to resign that legacy will still we'll still remain the other legacy of toxic buying relations between the different communities within Israel will certainly need detoxifying once. He leaves.
