Three years ago city officials estimated at $13 million economic boost from the inductions.  This year they expect to exceed that for a couple of reasons. 

The economy is much improved and people are more willing to spend money/  There were also more inductees, so more family, friends and fans made the trip to Cleveland to celebrate.
