The Tourism Sector and U.S. Regional Macroeconomic Stability: A Network Approach (open access)

The Tourism Sector and U.S. Regional Macroeconomic Stability: A Network Approach

This article investigates how the structural mix of USA regional economies affects their volatility of economic growth using four exogenous sectors: Federal Government, construction, manufacturing, and tourism. Results suggest that a larger share of Federal Government employment in an economy reduces the variability of overall employment growth, while a larger share of construction activity elevates it. Results also show that recently manufacturing has not contributed as much to such variability, and that a larger tourism presence increases it. The increasing integration of technology in tourism offers significant opportunities for a network approach and innovation in regional development.
