The Olympics DIDN'T Boost Britain's Tourism??

| Filed under: AnglophiliaBusiness BlitzOlympics


Some new confusing statistics were recently released that showed the 2012 London Olympics didn't actually bring in a huge number of tourists.

That's kinda surprising.

The Office for National Statistics said that 3 million people came to Britain during August… 5% fewer than last year!

What's funny is that the earnings from those tourists were actually 9% higher than last year.

Many businesses still complained of slow business during the games, mainly blaming the publicized predictions of overcrowding and crazy traffic for scaring off potential tourists.

We bet the income increase was because stores could raise their prices because tourists would either have to pay or be forced to stay inconveniently far away from the games.

At least they made some money!
