Tourists move by definition from the place of residence to the destination region, as well as between destinations, and between attractions within the same destination. These phenomena present several issues which are related both to the collection of information and to the analysis of complex information such as the ones related with tourist itineraries. An improved understanding of tourist mobility can assist DMOs to fully capture the benefit of cooperative marketing strategies between destinations and among tourism services within the same destination. Furthermore, increased knowledge regarding the determinants of tourist mobility can result in a more focused marketing of tourism products and services. In this lecture, traditional survey methods and the potential coming from the use of new technologies for the analysis of tourist mobility, such as GPS devices are discussed along with their merits and pitfalls. Special attention will be given to the implementation of sampling procedure, and Time Location Sampling is introduced as a potential solution in surveying mobile populations. From several case studies we can describe empirically the main problems arising in the analysis of tourist mobility and propose some potential solutions for the collection and analysis of data on tourist mobility at different temporal and territorial scales.

Große interne Lohndisparitäten zwischen Städten sind weltweit anzutreffen. Auf der Basis von Daten für Deutschland identifiziert der Vortrag als einen zentralen Treiber dieser Entwicklung "Assortative Matching" hochqualifizierter Arbeitskräfte und Unternehmen in großen Städten. Eine vielversprechende Strategie zur Verringerung von räumlichen Lohndisparitäten ist die Verbesserung von Matching in kleinen Städten.

The lecture analyses the appropriate role of capital taxation in advanced economies by synthesising the research on optimal capital taxation. To highlight the redistributive role of capital taxation, robust correlations between labour income, wealth and capital income are documented and new evidence on the wealth holdings of the wealthiest is presented. Distortionary effects of capital taxation are analysed and critical issues in its practical implementation are discussed. The overall conclusion is that there are good reasons to tax capital and that Nordic "dual" income taxation could be a constructive way to strike a balance between an optimal and administratively feasible tax system.

The course focuses on a typical single-region applied general equilibrium model: the ORANI-G model of the Australian economy. Variants of the ORANI model of the Australian economy have been used extensively for policy analysis in Australia for more than two decades. ORANI-G, a generic version of ORANI, has been used to model the economies of more than 30 countries around the world. The course aims to introduce participants to the ideas and techniques of CGE modelling, and to equip them to start using, adapting or constructing CGE models for their own simulations.
