Gambling Tourism and Economic Development: Some lessons from Macao

Listed author(s):
  • Metaxas, Theodore
  • Folinas, Sotiris

This article aims to explore and document the relationship between forms of alternative tourism and economic development. More specifically, the subject of our investigation will be whether a small national economy is able to rely wholly or largely on tourist flows as a source of income and even to invest in a single type of tourism. Alternative forms of tourism, gaming tourism as well as the features of territorially limited countries and how they are linked to the case of Macau will also be objects of study and annotation. With the process of text production through scientific articles, statistical data and reliable data bases, we will attempt to 'cover' the investigated relationship as well as the stemming questions.
