Commodities and People, Capital, Information and Technology

Aharon Kellerman

Presenting a comparative examination of five major voluntary global movements: commodities, people, capital, information and technology, this book traces and develops discussions of globalization and spatial mobility. The book further covers the means and media used for these mobilities: ports and ships, airports and airplanes, international banking electronic media, and the Internet, telephony and TV. Two concluding chapters focus on the mobile globe, highlighting present and future global mobility in general, and the relationships among the five global mobilities, in particular.

Chapter 5: Global tourism and relocation

Aharon Kellerman


Global tourism involves terminals (airports) and vehicles (airplanes), both of which were discussed in Chapter 4, and the international movements of people, discussed in this chapter. Our exploration of international travel in this chapter begins with discussions of its roots and drives, moving then to elaborations, first of international pleasure tourism, followed by international business tourism and relocation. The chapter further highlights the geography of country entry control, as maintained through tourist visas and their waivers. Business tourism is obviously partially related to the international movements of commodities and services, as well as to the movements of capital. All of these discussions include data at the country level. Finally, this chapter focuses on city destinations of tourists, a discussion that closes the circle with the focus on airports located in cities, which was presented in Chapter 4.
