Here's my input into this whole ordeal...Zahas project could have been built and within the estimated budget...IF AND ONLY IF, Abe would have given the contractor/construction companies the same deal as he did to Kengo and the current contractor/construction company... In my opinion, this is what I think happened under the table... Abe told the Architect and contractor, "please build/design the stadium for this amount of money...do it for your country...and later I will hook you guys up with future projects where you can make your money back!" It's the only possible way... And the Japanese Sports Council had no power... DENTSU has the power to influence. They are the company basically funding the Olympics! So who knows if Abe even had any say in this ordeal. Anyways like all Olympics there are under the table negotiations happening all of the time. It's time there should be Transparency.
