Mounting America's Cup costs - worth it?

From The Panel, 4:58 pm on 7 December 2018

It's been revealed the Government did consider pulling out of the America's Cup over its cost increases. The costs are 20 percent more than originally thought, which will be shared by the Government and Auckland Council.

The case has always been argued that the benefits outweigh the costs but economists are sceptical.

The panelists tell us if they think it's worth it.
