The Brookings Cafeteria

Oct 20, 2017

Juliana Barbassa and Theresa Williamson, two contributors to "Rio 2016: Olympic Myths, Hard Realities" from the Brookings Institution Press, discuss the corruption, disruption, and overall economic costs of hosting last year’s summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Also in this episode, David Wessel stops by for his regular economic update, and Bill Galston, senior fellow in the Governance Studies program, answers a question from one of our listeners.
