Insuring the 2016 Summer Olympics
Kathy Bergen, Todd Lighty and David Heinzmann
"Mayor Richard Daley's Olympics team has fashioned a unique package of insurance for the 2016 Summer Games designed to protect taxpayers from an array of unforeseen events such as a terrorist attack, a stadium collapse or even a pandemic. "But insurance can't protect against human incompetence, poor performance or corruption, and there's still the unsettled issue of potential cost overruns at the proposed Olympic Village. "Despite assurances that taxpayers would be protected by added insurance policies -- promises made by Daley after agreeing this summer to an unlimited financial guarantee backing the games -- no insurance fully protects the city from the overruns that have plagued previous high-profile projects."
