In the Balance - London's Olympic Legacy
Manuela Saragosa and her guess discuss whether the Games delivered lasting economic benefits to the UK? Are they - and other big sporting events like them - worth the money?
As London's Olympic Park comes back to life this weekend with athletes marking the first anniversary of the start of the London Olympics, In the Balance puts its metaphorical trainers on to ask whether the billions of taxpayers' money that went into the Games was worth it. Manuela Saragosa and guests discuss whether there is a lasting economic legacy to those two weeks in the summer of 2012, or to any big sporting event anywhere in the world. And we pull Colm O'Regan off the subs' bench to reflect on what sport can teach business.
