Economía y Juegos Olímpicos

Mañana inician los Juegos Olímpicos..... y claro, es un tema para la economía.... que tal este reporte de Goldam Sachs. En este post pueden obtener el documento!!!   Por cierto, uno de los responsables es José Ursúa, un brillante economista mexicano egresado del ITAM, que estudio en Harvard con Barro y un buen amigo!!!!

Esto podría ser bueno para UK dado que acaba de reportar un decremento en su PIb durante el segundo trimestre.... esta en recesión!!!!

The short-term effects derive from the expenditure on goods and services related to the hosting of the Olympics, which are recorded as output when the expenditure occurs. The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) estimates that it is likely to spend around £2bn in total—in temporary employment of staff, security, etc.—with more than half of this amount (around 0.3%-0.4% of GDP) likely to be spent within Q3 itself.2 Hoteliers, restaurateurs and retailers are also likely to witness an increase in output as they cope with the additional demand from overseas visitors. Set against this, however, some tourists may avoid coming to the UK because of the Olympics and the output of other businesses is likely to suffer as a result of transport disruption related to the Games indirect and other offsetting effects will be. As a central estimate, we have assumed that these effects will net out and that the overall short-term effect of staging the London Olympics will be to boost UK economic output in 2012Q3 by around 0.3-0.4ppt qoq (+1.2-1.6%qoq annualised).3 This short-term benefit will be largely reversed in Q4.


Chequen otro ejercicio interesante en este documento   ¿cuál es el efecto que tiene el nivel de ingreso de un país sobre la obtención de una medalla por tipo de disciplina?   que tal!!!!
