Global Depression, the New Cold War and the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games
by George Wright
When the IOC awarded the Olympic Games to Rio in 2009, Brazil was considered an economic powerhouse. Over the past decade, owing to geo-political and economic conditions, Brazil is facing perhaps the worse political-economic crisis in its history. This presentation will discuss that crisis and its impact on the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. The presentation will also provide a preview of what to watch for at the Rio Olympic Games.
George Wright is a professor, who is an expert on the history of sports and class.
