aCopy Table 4.3, and, to the people listed in it, add some more who are likely to be affected beneficially or otherwise.
TOURISM AND THE FUTURE
Figure 4.9 Souvenir-selling booths like these will become very common during the countdown to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
In a new table, list some of the people affected, and, for each group cited, show the potential impacts - the advantages and/or disadvantages - of the Games. Using the letter L or S, indicate which of the impacts may have long-term (L) or short-term (S) effects. Have a class discussion on the effects. Many people own and let accommodation in Sydney. What alternative decisions might some of these property owners make for the period of the Games?
What fair solutions can you suggest for benefiting the property owners, the regular long-term tenants and the short-term visitors?
How might rental regulations protect all the parties involved?
Economic benefits spread from the actual Olympic events through to tourism and many other related industries - see Figure 4.9. This process is known as the multiplier effect, the ripple effect and spin-off, and the subject of the photograph in Figure 4.9 is only one example of some of the linkages and flows that exist.
