5/4/06: Public Financing and Real Salt Lake

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – On Wednesday, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Carroon announced his decision to deny Real Salt Lake's request for 35 million dollars in public financing to build a soccer stadium in Sandy. Franchise executives have argued that the funding is critical to the team's survival in Utah. Doug Fabrizio and guests look at the economics of public money and private sports teams, and at the value and culture a team brings to a community that can't be measured in currency.
