The 2010 Olympics in Vancouver

 ... I used to live in Canada's Olympic City,
but I don't anymore.
I made this graphic and wrote the guide
while construction fever was at its zenith...

Guide to 2010 graphique

The Blue Dollar

“Them that’s got shall get, them that’s not shall lose,
So the Bible said, and it still is news”

Billie Holiday - God Bless The Child

This is the Blue Money. They are always first at the table.
It’s their table. Way out in front on this since pre-get-go.
Before you knew there might be a bid, they had revenue
projections to 2012.

Is that a problem?

The Golden Dollar

The new tigers. A Rainbow Coalition of finance.
Gen X inheristinas,  who golf with DVBIA up-and-comers
and other pick of the peak achievers from hoods to hell
and gone all over the GVRD.
They’ve already made whatever Real Money was
actually around outside the Blue zone.

What debt?

Nice logo. Nice box. Great view from here.

The Black Dollar
The Bureaucracy, private and public.
Civic workers.
Local business people.
That which was here before The Games,
which will be at the Games and which
will remain when the Games are gone.

The Green Dollar
The Green Dollar is a hard dollar, to make
or to keep. Green Dollar people believe that
they can, with some extra work, develop a
substantial one-time revenue score
that will secure their current assets
and/or fast-track their departure from
the workforce and into their Golden Years.
This, unfortunately will prove to be
the exception, rather than the rule.

The Red Dollar

The Red Dollar is the Canadian dollar,
because these are not the Vancouver Olympics
(much), these are the Canadian Olympics.

The contracts make this very clear.

The Red Dollar is everyone who is none of the
above, regardless of latitude or longitude. It's
anyone who thinks about what else could have
happened in the True North with all that money.
