Oakland A's moving to Las Vegas


Recommended Posts

Below is the link to the story. However, the real story is the use of public funds to pay for sports stadiums. This is nothing new or special to Las Vegas. However, now that we have sufficient data... it is clear that public funding generally does not pay off. Pro sports, while I love them, are not job creators. Nor do they create any real indirect economic impacts. An example of indirect is manufacturing where you put parts x, y, and z together to make a widget. Well, this spurs on the manufacturing x and y and possibly all that go into them. What is your take on this topic as a whole? I am 100% opposed to this from both an economic point of view as well as that of a sports fan.
