Example text

Samuel Pegge, ca. 1800, also provided an early reference to ‘‘tourist’’ in an essay in Anecdotes of the English Language where he observed: ‘‘A Traveller is now-a-days called a Tour-ist’’ (OED 1971: 3363). The context was one of disapproval of the increase in rising trend in working-class pleasure travelers. Even today, some people still tend to make invidious distinctions between their own activities as a ‘‘traveler’’ (which they see as ‘‘good’’) and those of the great mass of ‘‘tourists’’ (which they see as ‘‘bad’’).

Certain exceptions to the restriction to expenditures made during a trip are possible. For example, the purchase of consumables made immediately before departure, such as gas for the car, can be tallied as tourism expenditures. Expenditures such as dry cleaning made immediately after the trip and linked to trip activities may also be counted. Items not to be measured under this definition are as important as those that are. Investments by governments or businesses in infrastructure or the costs of providing tourism services are not tourism expenditures.
