U. B. C. Professor Chris Shaw warned of corporatized Olympics gangsterism in FIVE RING CIRCUS, 2008 TYEE article by Andrew MacLeod

The Tyee carried a prophetic article written by Andrew MacLeod about University of British Columbia Professor Chris Shaw, author of the hard-hitting primer for anti-Olympics activists, FIVE RING CIRCUS: Myths and Realities of the Olympic Games, in 2008.

Calling the shameful thing a ‘corporate scam’ and a ‘$6 billion party,’ the UBC neuroscientist’s book, published by New Society Publishers, will likely prove to be conservative in its final cost estimates.

A link to the article and interview with Prof. Shaw is found in the Comments section below.
