Why the Sochi Olympics are the Most Expensive in History. At a cost of roughly twenty-five times as much as the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and four times more than initial estimates, the Winter Olympics in Sochi are the most expensive Olympic Games ever... in fact, more expensive than all prior Winter Olympic games combined. All this is cold comfort for hundreds of local residents who were kicked out of their homes, in some cases, apparently, with no compensation or nowhere to go.
