Desperate Foreign investment explained

While Bainimarama is busy swatting imaginary foreign flies, and swanning around the provinces brow-beating poor uneducated villagers about how quel magnifico he is , it is clear that things are not getting any better in our beloved land.

We have two epidemics of Typhoid & Swine Flu running rampant through the countryside, people are still losing jobs, inflation is rising every day, and there are thousands still living hand to mouth from the effects of Cyclone Tomas. Not to mention , the economy seems to be on a downward spiral from which there doesn't look to be any relief in sight.


A faithful correspondent sent me this diagram with a suggestion that I put it up so as to educate Mr Denirarama about what his version of foreign investment (ie. loans & kerekere) with China, Burma and Russia will look like .

Woopsi ... rhymes with ?

As with anything people want certainty ... certainty of economy and certainty of law . This is not apparent in Fiji and neither is the junta transparent about its agenda, so no one in their right mind is going to invest ... symptoms of the regime's sickness are obvious to all despite the media suppression, so its a joke who they are trying to hoodwink ... an example in the NZ Herald today points to a glaring symptom and consequence of Fiji's illness in the marketplace - (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=106505770)

@ anon 8.30am - you must be a daily reader of the Fiji Sun, the regime's propoganda mouthpiece. As a nurse, I can tell you that Swine Flu has killed more people in Fiji than my bosses will say because they re not allowed to report this to the media. Most of the victims are small children and women who are not in good health at the beginning. Thyphoid cases are flooding into all the health centres daily and it has now spread to the western side. We need more nurses to cope but have to continue suffering underpaid and long work hrs.

Anonymous @ 10:44: Do you think you could posibly convince Anonymouse at 08:30? Not a chance because they're more interested in ideology than reality or the facts as they are. (It's their livlihood afterall). Pigs and shit spring to mind, That's why there is a junta that has to feed pigs and shit with treats and trinkets - just to make sure they keep it up. It's called Facism, and it even makes people who once had good intentions succumb to it.
I'm not sure what the solution is but its in Fijians own hands! They probably need to weigh up what is expedient and what is reasonable. We know what the most expedient is, and it's along the lines of te Facists own solutions.
Otherwise be prepared for a long wait and for them to self destruct when people will piss on their graves and give their offspring a hard time

Contrary to some notions, well explored articles still fetch in reviewers like me.
