The Olympics cost a lot to set up and overall it will cost the government of the country that holds the Olympics more than what they would get back from the competition. Also the country that holds the olympics in the years leading up to the Olympics spend more money building these stadiums and clearing space for everything to be built than they spend on building up the local infrastructure.

The Olympics do a lot of good. First, they spur countries and municipalities to invest in better infrastructure. That alone benefits the people of the hosting area. Also, the games bring in a lot of tourists, and that injects a massive amount of money into local economies. Lastly, the games promote international peace, and that is priceless.

Olympics are not a waste of money because it only happens every 4 yrs. In that time the country that hosts the Olympics can save a lot so there would be less or even no deficit. Olympics are not a waste money as it brings countries closer in an interactive way.

We end up loosing money instead of gaining it because the stadiums and facilities cost so much money only to get knocked down a couple weeks later, and there are so much better ways to spend money for example we could be donating money to charity or homeless sick people.

I understand that there is a strong sentiment which surrounds the Olympic games, and it's not that I have anything against them in and of themselves, but I think the amount of ceremony, media hype, and flare which is used is certainly excessive. Instead of using that money to further lavish the leaders of the globe and create a spectacle, we could be using these resources to SOLVE PROBLEMS.

At the same time, Rio 2016 will be an opportunity to deliver the broader aspirations for the long-term future of the city, region and country – an opportunity to hasten the transformation of Rio de Janeiro into an even greater global city.

They have been planning this for a long time and I hope they have the security aspects flawless. This will be the biggest event since the terror has started around the world. This will be a joint effort from countries around the world and I want to see if they can get it done right. If not this could turn into a disaster quickly.

I have family living in Brazil and I cannot wait for the games to begin. It will be like have a festival that doesn't end. I am a little concerned about security and I will not be going to the stadium.

Greece’s Hellenic Olympic Committee denies accusations that costs to host the Games contributed to Greece’s debt crisis that exploded in 2009 and forced it to seek two bailouts worth €240bn (Dh 1.2 trillion) from the European Union and International Monetary Fund.
