Peter Cox discusses tourism, which was the subject of a May conference at Bowdoi
Peter Cox discusses tourism, which was the subject of a May conference at Bowdoin College, sponsored by the the Maine Center of Economic Policy [Cover story, May 28]. The conference showed that Maine people are ambivalent about the business, which tends to pay low wages and has high environmental impacts. Cox praises Maine's new, tourism-based transportation plan as a good step in the direction of minimizing the adverse impacts of the tourism, but concludes that since Americans are wedded to "personal mobility,"the problems associated with tourism will probably never be solved.
