Economist: Stadium won't do much for d'town FoCo
Not a lot, according to Dr. Joel Maxcy, the Temple University economist hired by the stadium's opponents.
Maxcy's presentation at CSU in September, which focused on the financial feasibility of the stadium, included little-noticed commentary on what he deemed "spillover effects" on the community.
Stadium proponents aren't going to like what he had to say:
The congestion, noise and waste likely to come with the raucous football fans may detract would-be shoppers, diners and drinkers from heading downtown on game days, according to the economist.
Game attendees will likely stay on or near campus for food and drink, benefiting the university but of little good to the city itself.
So there you have it. Let the arguing begin.
