After more than a year of postponement, the 2020 Olympics start on Friday in Tokyo. Although long waited, the Olympic games display a reality far from over. The increase in COVID 19 cases led Japan to declare a state of emergency. All spectators were banned, meaning a total of 0 fans attending the event. The pandemic also brought more than $3.3 billion in extra costs for the Tokyo Olympics, a 22% higher-than-expected price to host the games. Although the IOC claims the Olympics are an engine of economic growth and urban revitalization, it seems that Tokyo is far from seeing any economic benefits during the games.
