This research note investigates the time-varying relationship between tourism and economic growth in Europe. A considerable body of literature attempts to disentangle the connective strands and lines of causality between tourism and the economy. Some authors maintain that tourism leads to economic growth, while others support its antithesis (i.e. it is the economic growth that stimulates tourism growth). There are also several studies which suggest either a bidirectional relationship between tourism and the economy or no relationship at all.
