I don't know about the world cup but the olympics leaves every city in it's wake bankrupt. People are blinded by the prestige of alot of these events, but don't take into account the true impact. I honestly think Atlanta made a turn for the worse after the olympics back in the 90s. I don't know the impact after a world cup because Im not familiar with what it takes to run it and rules and stipulations involved, but it does make sense to spend that same amount of money on the citizens if they're not doing so.valid points, but i do honestly think the world cup and olympics will make a positive change for the country. people are forced to be on their best and withhold their reputation. they also giving the country new infrastructure. not only new football staidums are built, but roads and public transport are fixed, and like she said street hustlers would make more money.
