Note that the earlier non-refundable payments of $150m are sunk, and so are

The benefits of continuing are $800m. The costs of continuing are the additional
$500m needed plus the $200m that could be recovered from earlier investments if
the games are cancelled. Thus, the continuation payoff is $800m – ($500m +
$200m) = $100m. 16. A
With perfect foresight the province would have estimated the benefits at $800 and
the costs at ($500m + $500m), for a net benefit of -$200m. 17. B 18. We should complete the games despite the fact that we would never have started
