How does tourism boost the economy in Paris?
The economy in Paris is more dependent on tourism than any other major city in the world. While many of the major cities of the world depend on finance or entertainment or other services, Paris alone is relatively dependent on tourism. Though some statistics have cited a "diverse" Paris economy by reciting percentages of workers in various industries, it is notable that none of those statistics includes any tourism workers at all (whereas other cities have recited similar statistics but include a category for tourism), calling into question whether those statistics are an honest look at the Paris economy or spin from some party interested in trying to convince the reader that the Paris economy is not dependent on tourism (by of course excluding any dependency on tourism). If it were true that Paris' economy was not dependent on tourism and is so diverse, why has it suffered relatively more greatly than any other major city in Europe (and its own mayor has stated that the lack of tourists from America in particular, but also from England, Japan and China, has resulted in a "complete catastrophe" for the Paris economy). In fact, Paris' own government agency states that 1 in 10 workers in Paris is employed in the tourism industry.
