The Economics of Small Island Tourism

International Demand and Country Risk Analysis

Riaz Shareef,

The Economics of Small Island Tourism: International Demand and Country Risk Analysis
 
 
This study forms an entirely new area of research on Small Island Tourism Economies (SITEs). It addresses the importance of uncertainty in monthly international tourist arrivals and country risk indicators to the macroeconomy. Conditional volatilities are estimated for international tourist arrivals, and an economic interpretation from the estimated results is provided. In achieving these two objectives, this work presents an extensive assessment of the important characteristics and the impact of tourism in SITEs in relation to their gross domestic product, balance of payments, employment, and foreign direct investment, among other factors. This book is unique in giving emphasis to macroeconomic implications rather than an industry focus. "The Economics of Small Island Tourism" will appeal to academics at the under- and post-graduate levels involved in environmental and tourism management as well as tourism economics.
