Atlanta Forward: Quality of Life

Public subsidy of sports stadiums is a passionate topic in metro Atlanta these days, as the Braves and Falcons move forward with plans to construct new stadiums partially financed by taxpayer dollars. Recently, two economists steeped in the topic argued the pros and cons of decisions to underwrite splashy, state-of-the-art homes for local sports teams. The debate, held at the Georgia-Pacific building downtown, was sponsored by the conservative America’s Future Foundation.
