From the Paper:

"In 1988, tourism once again began a rise. This time, however, the crisis in the Middle East that eventually erupted into the Gulf War brought tourism to a screeching halt. When the Gulf War ended, tourism was once again expected to begin a growth phase. By that time, however, the United States had entered into another economic recession, and economic activity in most of the other industrial nations had begun to slow. At that time, recovery in the travel industry was not expected to occur until the mid-1990s."
