Are the Rams Worth It?
St. Louis public officials are pushing plans for a new stadium to keep the Rams from leaving town. About half of the roughly $1 billion cost will be billed to city and state residents. The Show-Me Institute's Joseph Miller and Michael Rathbone will discuss what previous economic studies have to say about the economic benefits of new stadiums and present new research on how much the city really stands to gain - or lose - if it pays to keep the Rams.
Joseph Miller grew up in Itasca, Ill. He earned an undergraduate degree from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and a master's degree from the University of California-San Diego's School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. His focus has been international economics, international politics, and China studies. He is a policy analyst at the Show-Me Institute.
Michael Rathbone is a native of Saint Louis, and a 2008 graduate of Saint Louis University, where he earned a degree in biomedical engineering (B.S.). In 2010, Michael obtained an M.B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis with concentrations in finance and healthcare management. First introduced to free-market economics circa 2007, today Michael considers free markets vital for continued economic prosperity. Working at the Show-Me Institute is Michael's first foray into public policy.
