      China has pulled out all the stops to get the 2008 Olympic Games after a heartbreaking loss to Sydney for 2000. State media here have steadily promised a world-beating Game at a cost of $20 to $40 billion. Yet such triumphal tones are now giving way to a more modest depiction of the 2008 enterprise. One former Chinese official, speaking on terms of anonymity, stated that, “It goes against the Chinese tradition of modesty for us to brag about our games. We need to ensure
the quality of materials is high. That's been the problem in our past. It isn't just the cost. But this plan does cost a lot, and we need to be practical.”

      Beijing secured the 2008 Olympics after a hard-fought competition with Paris and Toronto. For China, snagging the Olympics was not only a matter of prestige but of international respect. More important, as a Security Council member and a rising power in Asia, the victory brought confidence that China would now be able to show the world its efficient central-planning system and its new technocratic class of savvy organizational managers who would put on a world-class games.

      Still, despite continued hopes for private-sector contributions, the financing side of the games remains largely state-run. The principal partners are state-owned enterprises: The Bank of China, Air China, and China Netcom. Volkswagen has signed on, however, as has General Electric and McDonald''s.
