Yesterday a taxi driver insisted that tourists are responsible for inflation. I tried to point out that owners of businesses were the ones who set prices, not toutists. If owners are increasing some prices because tourists are willing to pay more, the blame rests with local business owners who are taking advantage of the toutist boom. The driver didn't agree. Tourists are responsible for inflation. So is there any truth to what the driver said? Are "tourists" (by that I think he includes resident expats with what he perceives to be lots of money) to blame for all or some of the inflation?
