$US51 billion and counting. That’s the amount spent – so far – on staging the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
The team at Bproperty has done the math: for the cost of the most expensive Olympics ever, you could buy 58km2 of land in Saudi Arabia. Or for the price of the Olympic Village alone, you could build more than 300,000 average-size apartments in Pakistan.
So what else could you get, property-wise, for the money spent on Sochi?
