How 24 of the world’s greatest projects were budget nightmares

London Olympics

I’m not sure about you, but if I told my bosses that we’d gone over budget by 1990%, I don’t think they’d be too thrilled.

Montreal’s Olympic Stadium was forecast to cost $148,667,400. Three years later, they’d spent a staggering $3,107,148,660. Ouch!

Our friends at Podio have put together a rather nifty infographic (and not just your usual fancy-looking infographic – but a clever interactive infographic!) that provides the details of 24 of the world’s greatest projects that went seriously over budget. So next time you spend a bit too much, keep these in the back of your mind!
