The motive driving Olympics push in Boston

LOOK NO further for the motive driving proponents for holding the 2024 Olympics in Boston than this sentence from the Globe news article “Championship pedigree to join Boston 2024 board” (Page A1, April 23).

“Boston 2024 has proposed a roughly $9 billion Olympics, for the most part privately financed through corporate sponsorships, broadcast revenue, ticket fees, and capital from private investors to build key Olympic facilities, which the investors would control after the Games for commercial uses” (my italics).
