When the International Olympic Committee decided to hold the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in the early October, it symbolized that BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) will be major power in the future. China held the 2008 Summer Olympic, Russia will host the 2014 Winter Games, and now Brazil will have the 2016 Summer Olympic. Tokyo spent 15 billion Japanese yen on its campaign to host the game in 2016, but Tokyo lost. More than half of population in the poll did not expect Tokyowould lose the games. But the naïve Japanese politicians spent tax payers money without accountability. Who will re-pay 15 billion Japanese yen of the tax payers’ money?
