I wonder just how much the tourist industry is worth ?
the problem is though is that tourist industry is not a stable economy. it's seasonal, and a short season, it's largely dependent on other economies having 'disposal income' and all those hotels, restaurants and the associated staff need to generate revenue the rest of the year. or they just become money absorbers.

we see this a lot in aviation when in peak season you cant get a commercial jet transport in peak season for love nor money, yet at down times operators just need something to pay the staff the maintenance, the asset, the overheads... of course aircraft can move, regions cannot.
