So here is an idea off the top of my head. Forgive me for not thinking out the logistics of it all, but I’m allowed to dream so let me be.
What if the summer Olympics had a permanent location, and that location was Haiti. I think we are at about the point where the Western world owes some poorer countries that we’ve oppressed could use some favour coming their way. Hosting the Olympics would mean massive amounts of infrastructure upgrades for their major cities and would be a major source of employment for all kinds of Haitians. The western countries, who are all bidding to bring the Olympics to their countries could all pitch in large sums of money to benefit the Haitian people and have an excellent permanent facility for the games every four years.
Each country would get a certain amount of ticket allocated every four years and that many people from their country could come. It could also be used as an international training facility for the other 3 years and 50 weeks, which would mean you would have to keep employing Haitians all year long. Basically, Haiti’s export market would be the Olympics.
It will never happen. Countries are all too prideful and want to show off their sites and spend billions of dollars on flashy opening ceremonies and HD camera shots of their tourist sites. They wouldn’t want to throw any real money at benefiting and uplifting another country out of debt when they don’t stand to directly benefit from it (ie. we will give them our rice really cheap so we don’t have to buy their rice from their markets).
Find the poorest cold country in the world and do the same for the winter Olympics. Permanent location. I think it has potential. That’s my idea before I go to bed.
