Living in a place where a significant chunk of the economy is tourism-based, got to thinking recently about the role that #coops can play building community wealth and minimizing extraction in tourist economies.
Anyone have a recommendation as to a good introduction to #TourismEconomics as I proceed further down this hole?
@mattcropp Don't have any readings to suggest. Just one tidbit: a group in Japan "Kibou no Tane" (seed of hope) has been organizing tours in partnership with local tourism cooperatives in small towns all over Japan.
@mattcropp Costa Rica. There must be studies on the Costa Rican tourism economy.
