Professional sports give people pride and a sense of community. But who should pay for the stadiums? Proponents say that subsidizing sports stadiums is justified because of the economic impact it will have on the community. First, sports stadiums are huge construction projects. In fact, they are often compared to the medieval cathedral in their attempt to dominate the skyline and inspire civic pride. Proponents of a new stadium often laud the project's ability to generate new construction jobs. Although construction jobs eventually disappear once a stadium is built, once the games begin, so does consumer spending.
