BEIJING - Organizers aren't counting on the Beijing Olympics to turn a big profit. "My sense is that the games will break even, but we're unlikely to make a lot of money," Tu Mingde, the Chinese Olympic Committee vice president, told The Associated Press on Sunday. "It's like having people over to dinner. The food may be not so expensive, but you need to select the right furniture, carpets, and so on."
Tu, who is attending the congress' annual legislative session, said organizers are avoiding waste but will spend what is necessary for a first-rate Olympics.
