Tourism: Economic growth, employment and Dutch Disease

Abstract

Since 2008, Spain has sustained a significant economic recession. Tourism is seen as a possible substitute for weakened domestic demand and, thus, an opportunity for to economic revitalisation the economy. Nevertheless, tourism also has profound consequences on the economy at the microeconomic level regarding resource allocation, exchange rate appreciation and demand for non-tradable goods, which can trigger the so-called Dutch Disease. A recursive-dynamic CGE model is developed to assess this possibility. Tourism implies a boost in the economy, although the Dutch Disease acts at the sectoral level causing a shift in resources towards non-tradable sectors which may jeopardize productivity gains, generate a persistent appreciation of the real exchange rate and thus affect the economic growth in the long term.
