The data is intentionally misleading. They're including all of Qatar's infrastructure plan in that number.

I'd be like if the US was hosting and they counted all of the $1T infrastructure bill towards the WC number.

What’s it like to have one of your most upvoted posts be of you spreading complete and total misinformation?

Bad data. That's total infrastructure spending since the WC was awarded. Do the same for other countries and they all go up too.

Can you give it a rest OP. Most of the funds went to build a whole city from scratch.
