    Didn’t China already learn it’s lesson. What are they trying to do with all their left over ’08 Olympic stuff, that has fallen into disuse or much needed repair. Now to show off they’re spending grand sums on an over sized solar garden light. Promoted as example of “sustainable development” yet the costs involved in dismantling the stadium (if need be) have not been factored in. While the 84′ games actually made surplus money. The organizing committee had been able to create such a surplus in part by selling exclusive sponsorship rights to select companies. The IOC originally resisted funding by corporate sponsors. Nowadays the IOC incurs none of the cost, yet controls all the rights and profits from the Olympic symbols. The IOC also takes a percentage of all sponsorship and broadcast income. Athens bankrupted itself for the right to host the games.
