Abstract

The purpose of this study is to study dynamic interactions among economic growth, structural change, international trade and tourist flows. It builds a multi-country growth model with endogenous wealth accumulation and tourism. The model is unique in that it introduces endogenous tourism within a general dynamic equilibrium framework. The model is built on microeconomic foundations. It not only integrates the three well-known Solow growth model, Oniki-Uzawa trade model, and the Uzawa two-sector model, but also introduces tourist flows between economies for any number of national economies. After building the model, we demonstrate that the motion of the J - country world economy can be described by J differential equations. We also simulate the global economy with three countries, showing that the world dynamics has a unique equilibrium. We carry out comparative dynamic analysis with regard to one country's total productivity factor, the propensity to save, the propensity to tour other countries, and the population.
