Abstract

This paper uses monthly data to compare how international tourism receipts and the overall economy responded to the Arab Spring Total Reserves were used as an indicator of the economy overall, because they reflect confidence in the economy through such factors as Foreign Direct Investment and the effects of capital flight. To examine the response, interrupted time series was employed, using the outbreak of Arab Spring as the key interruption. To separate the impact of Arab Spring from other events, two treated and two untreated cases were selected. The results show that tourist spending recovered faster than the overall economy.
