Tourism increasingly belongs to international finance and responds to growing speculative interests with a financialisation logic. The consequences for the neighbours are obvious: rent increases, occupation of public space, job insecurity and a long etc.
The ODG report “(Not) everything is a commodity. The finance takover of the tourism sector” sheds light on how and why the finance-tourism binomial is becoming more powerful and has increasing (negative) impacts and consequences in our lives . Based on it, we have prepared this infographic with the aim of pointing out some of the actors involved and the mechanisms in play, drawing on the global context in which this process is inserted.
Check out the teaser of the report.
