VIDEO: 2014 World Cup Economics

With all the buzz surrounding the 2014 World Cup in Brazil beginning this week, it’s no secret that FIFA stands to gain from this event. The follow-up question is usually, “How much?” John Oliver (of Daily Show fame)¬†paints a cheeky picture on his show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver about the economic effect of this this year’s event on Brazil and how it factors in to FIFA’s shady reputation.

Of course, the video is biased but it sums up everything I’m feeling about the information I’ve encountered about FIFA in recent years. Especially about Qatar hosting World Cup 2022.
Just some food for thought.

I’m sure I can speak for most of us when I say: We are still watching World Cup football.
And I leave you with the feature image. It’s just too good not to leave out.
