The Overseas Impact of Tourism Tourist development outside the UK has had a broad economic, social and cultural impact. Drawing in part on the concept of the positional good discussed earlier, I consider some Mediterranean countries, and follow this with comments on north America and South-East Asia. As we saw in Chapter I, there are complex relationships between tourists and the indigenous populations of the places at which those tourists gaze; the resulting artificiality of many tourist attractions results from the particular character of the social relations that come to be established between 'hosts' and 'guests' in such places (see Smith, 1989, on the following).

It must also be ~sked: development for whom? Many of the facilities that result from tourism (airports, golf courses, luxury hotels and so on) will be of little benefit to the mass of the indigenous population. Likewise much indigenous wealth that is generated will be highly unequally distributed and so most of the population of developing countries will gain little benefit. This does of course depend on patterns of local ownership. Finally, much employment generated in tourist-related services is relatively low-skilled and may well reproduce the servile character of the previous colonial regime, what one critic has termed 'flunkey training' (quoted in Crick, 1988: 46).

Robert Graves has written off the similar tourist transformation of Majorca: the old Palma has long ceased to exist; its centre eaten away by restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, travel agencies and the like ... Huge new conurbations have sprung up along the neighbouring coast ... The main use of olive trees seems to be their conversion into ... salad bowls and boxes for sale to the tourists. But, as a Majorcan wag remarked, once they are all cut down we will have to erect plastic ones for the tourists to admire from their bus windows.
