The chief obstacle to peace and prosperity in Solomon Islands is poverty and lack of money for people to live and trade with and for government to properly operate with.
If corruption played a role in nearly destroying SI as Mr George of RAMSI has said, what role did fundamental collapse of barter trade play? When did anybody last see canoe loads of fish being barter traded in SI?
If there is true transparency in Solomon Islands, what is the social and economic impact of devastation of traditional staple fish resources? Why is fish depletion and lack of available free or low cost fish not being discussed and rectified?
Why ignore dinner plates covered with rice when only half as much rice would be used if half the plate had a piece of fish?
If RAMSI is helping to make the best choice for the people and the nation, why is poverty and economic infrastructure development not being duly addressed as well as gun control and corruption?
