Domestic Tourism and Regional Inequality in Brazil
AbstractThis paper analyses the consumption patterns of tourists coming from different domestic origins and choosing other domestic destinations in Brazil, in terms of expenditure level and composition. We also look at different alternatives of financing tourist expenditures and their implications for the net multipliers in an integrated framework. We use survey data for domestic tourism in Brazil to consolidate an interregional matrix of expenditures by tourists. We then use an interregional input-output system for Brazil to compute the tourism multipliers effects based on alternative hypotheses for the sources of financing of expenditures by tourists. The results are analyzed and their implications for regional inequality in the country are discussed.
