New PDF release: Elementi di Economia del Turismo (Manuali. Scienze sociali)

By Antonio Magliulo

Il turismo è destinato a diventare uno dei fenomeni socio-economici più rilevanti dei prossimi anni. Ma è un'attività complessa, sfuggente, che mal si presta advert essere circoscritta e misurata. l. a. rilevanza e los angeles complessità del fenomeno hanno generato una nuova disciplina – l'economia del turismo – e tanti pregevoli libri di testo. Perché allora un nuovo manuale? Forse perché c'è uno spazio ancora aperto. I manuali di economia del turismo presuppongono che il lettore conosca già i fondamenti dell'economia politica e descrivono nel dettaglio e in profondità le molteplici dimensioni del fenomeno turistico. D'altra parte, i manuali di economia politica non menzionano affatto il settore turistico e seguono un approccio (apparentemente) astratto e eccessivamente teorico. Il lettore rischia così di trovarsi in uno strano paradosso: quando studia l'economia politica non comprende l'utilità che potrà trarre da quelle conoscenze, e quando passa all'economia del turismo avverte uno iato troppo grande. Questo libro vorrebbe essere un piccolo ponte che conduce dall'economia politica all'economia del turismo. Passato il guado, il lettore dovrebbe inoltrarsi più facilmente nei territori dell'economia turistica.

Antonio Magliulo (1962) insegna Economia politica del turismo e Storia del pensiero economico nella Facoltà di Economia dell'Università di Firenze. Tra le sue pubblicazioni figurano: Non solo liberisti. L'ambivalente ruolo della teoria neoclassica nella cultura economica italiana del Novecento (1999) e Il keynesismo in Italia (1913-1963). Le ragioni di una rivoluzione mancata (2003).

Tourismus als Wachstumsimpuls für den ländlichen Raum: - download pdf or read online

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Touristik / Tourismus, notice: bestanden, Universität Hamburg, 22 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (MV) ist mit seventy five Einwohnern je km² das dünn besiedelste Bundesland. Zum Vergleich: im benachbarten Schleswig-Holstein leben 179 Menschen je km² und in Nordrhein-Westfalen sind es 530. Ballungszentren fehlen gänzlich. Ländlicher Raum zeichnet sich neben geringer Bevölkerungsdichte auch durch einen hohen Anteil Erwerbstätiger in landwirtschaftlichen Wirtschaftsbereichen aus. Damit kann MV insgesamt als ländlicher Raum betrachtet werden. In der Arbeitslosenstatistik liegt es weit vorn. Mit 20,1% Erwerbslosen hat es die zweithöchste Quote in Deutschland. Das liegt auch daran, dass in der Landwirtschaft, ein für MV noch immer bedeutender Wirtschaftsfaktor, viele Arbeitsplätze verloren gegangen sind. Auf der Suche nach alternativen Wachstumsimpulsen soll hier der Tourismus näher beleuchtet werden. Schon jetzt ist er ein sehr wichtiger Wirtschaftsfaktor und der Wirtschaftsbericht 2004 bescheinigt dieser Branche optimistic Wachstumsaussichten. Die Entwicklung der Landwirtschaft und vor allem die Folgen des Arbeitsplatzabbaus sollen hier näher beleuchtet werden. Das touristische Angebot in MV wird genauer betrachtet und mit anderen Tourismusanbietern verglichen, um Chancen und Potentiale aufdecken zu können. Letztlich wird ein Überblick über zukünftige Entwicklungen gegeben, die z.B. durch die Umsetzung der Agrarreform und des Tourismuskonzepts beeinflusst werden.
