Fiji: Capitalism matters more than democracy


We have a couple of Fiji-philes among the VRWC.
There's Adolf, for starters, plus our good mate Whale Oil, who was born there.
So I hope they managed to see Peter Creswell's holiday report.
He looks at the political and economic system in the idyllic paradise.
And, yes, the system the country has, the lack of property rights, etc, etc, and the inherent racism of the system is all to blame for Fiji's troubles.
So for an interesting, useful and relevent perspective on the situation in Fiji, read the Not PC article 'Just Scratching a Living in Paradise.'
Uncle Helen might find it worth a read too.
Hat tip: Not PC
