Tourism: World's Largest Industry???

Well, Dr. Alan Lew, Northern Arizona University reports in his blog that the World Travel and Tourism Council is again going to try to "prove" the title statement.  Read his blog for the details.

I mean, can tourism be bigger that the medical field?  Just look at your latest EOB (Explanation of Benefits) from your health insurance.

You've heard about the military spending $1,000 for a hammer, but what about $100 for an aspirin.

Wow, thinking about that, perhaps the military is the largest industry in the world?

  1. I'm curious as to what extent tourism globally has been affected by the "Great Recession" that has plagued the United States and beyond over the past decade. While the number of foreign visitors to the U.S. has dwindled in the post-9/11 milieu, I am curious as to whether there has been an increase in the recent past.
