The Brattle Group Selected to Analyze Potential Impacts of 2024 Summer Olympics in Boston

The Brattle Group has been selected to provide an independent analysis of the potential impacts of the 2024 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games being hosted in Boston. The analysis, which will be completed by mid-August, will evaluate aspects of financing, infrastructure, economic impacts, and Commonwealth and taxpayer responsibilities relative to Boston 2024’s bid preparation. Brattle will be working with Professor Brad Humphreys of West Virginia University and Professor Allen Sanderson of The University of Chicago, and assisted by financial reporting and accounting experts from Floyd Advisory LLC.

Brattle’s involvement in this effort was announced today by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, House Speaker Robert DeLeo, and Senate President Stan Rosenberg. “Bringing the Olympics to Massachusetts is an extremely complicated endeavor and we must remain vigilant to protect the taxpayers,” said Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst). “The Brattle Group brings third party expertise to help analyze Boston 2024’s plans when they become available. I look forward to working with them to provide additional transparency and accountability during this process.”
