Tourism Economics and Policy combines a comprehensive treatment of economic concepts and applications in tourism contexts. The topics covered are those that most occupy the attention of tourism economists in research and policy areas internationally. Content includes tourism demand and forecasting; tourism supply and pricing; measuring tourism's economic contribution using tourism satellite accounts; measuring the impacts and benefits of changes in tourism demand, contrasting Input-output and computable general equilibrium modelling; cost benefit analysis; economic evaluation of special events; tourism investment and infrastructure; tourism taxation; aviation and tourism issues, tourism and the environment (including climate change) and destination competitiveness. The text provides an excellent basis for students to appreciate the relevance of economic analysis to the solution of real life tourism issues as well as its importance for decision making by both destination managers and tourism operators.

Review:

This excellent book is a valuable resource for anyone wishing to understand the application of economic thought to the fascinating field of tourism. Its style is both rigorous and readable, and students will value the many user-friendly resources provided by the authors. Real strengths of the book are its policy perspective, its comprehensive coverage, and its inclusion of environmental issues.

(Pauline Sheldon, University of Hawaii, USA)


Tourism Economics and Policy is a timely and significant contribution to tourism education and research. The book is suitable for both senior undergraduate and postgraduate students who are pursuing tourism and hospitality related degrees. Researchers and policymakers will also find the book very useful, as it brilliantly integrates various economic theories with tourism practices.

(Haiyan Song, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)


Tourism Economics and Policy is a tome that should be on the shelf of every serious tourism scholar since it addresses the measurement of every aspect of tourism as well as all major themes. It does so in a language that is accessible to non-economists by not assuming that the terminology will be understood, using formulae sparingly, and providing illustrations where possible. This book provides an excellent insight into the application of economic concepts and their application to tourism, and would lend itself to animated debates, particularly at the graduate level. However, many of the topics should also supplement the teaching of the various subjects at the undergraduate level, as they would add a depth not commonly encountered, yet of increasing importance to understanding the complexity of tourism phenomena. Policy-makers would be well advised to read this book and incorporate the rigour it provides into their activities.
Marion Joppe, School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada in Tourism Planning & Development

(Vol. 8, No. 4, 467-470, November 2011)
