Müller, Martin (2009). Measuring the regional economic impact of mega-events: what are the benefits of the 2014 Olympics for Sochi? In: Romanova, G. Professional training for the XXII Olympic and XI Paralympic Winter Games: problems and perspectives. Sochi: Sochi State University for Tourism and Recreation, 192-201.

Abstract

The economic benefits of mega-events such as the Olympic Games are much touted but little quantified. This paper first presents a systematisation of the money streams associated with hosting the Olympic Games and then introduces basic concepts from regional economics. On this basis it outlines a general model that could be employed to estimate the regional economic impact of tourism associated with the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in 2014.
