Celtic 'contribute more to Scottish economy

I'm surprised no-ones mention this...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46276000

Some interesting facts I certainly didn't know.

Aye it does..

"3.1 As specified by the study brief, the visitor economic impact of the Games has been assessed by analysing the effect of the spending by visitors in terms of its contribution to the economy (GVA)[11] and employment at the Scottish, Glasgow and the Clyde Valley and the Glasgow levels..

3.3 Spending by all visitor groups increases demand for the goods and services purchased by visitors (e.g. in hotels, restaurants, shops). Businesses will increase staff numbers, or possibly hours, so as to increase output. These businesses will also increase their purchases from their own suppliers. Within the supplier businesses the same response to increased demand will take place."

It then breaks it down into the three ways in which it achieves this; directly, indirectly, and induced.

" The three effects combined are the total impact. The Scottish Government Input-Output Model enables us to quantify these multiplier effects and thus to measure the impact of increased spending on the Scottish economy."

Hence it explains the total income that the games brought to Scotland.

Nope. Only the visitor income. Not total economic benefit as Celtic are claiming. Please tell me you don't actually believe this?

Even that is flawed though as the games brought visitors pre 2014 and jobs. I worked on the project for 3 years. There were test and pre events for years before. Volunteer interviews from round the world. Over 1000 permanent staff working there from all over the world.

As I said it's like me saying I'm better than the rock cause I'm an inch taller.

If I recall correctly the total economic impact (not just visitors) was about 700 million after budget.

According to ‘The Post-Games Report’ it was £740m gross over 8 years, so £92.5m gross annually. So even less than that, net. Obviously that’s not exactly true as 2014 was responsible for more than £92.5m gross in that particulate year.

That’s total economic impact (which is what the previous economic impact report I shared) to Scotland.

From the Scottish Government’s own reports.

Don’t know how you can argue against that.
