📒Pacific 2010 ✍ Paul A. McGavin
📝Pacific 2010 Book Synopsis : Improvements in labour absorption need not and should not focus on growth in wage jobs. Government policies have tended to focus on expansion of the urban wage jobs in the formal sector. For Pacific island nations as a whole, the resource advantages of land and people are rural. The public policy challenge is to act as a catalyst so that these resources are developed and utilised for human betterment. The main opportunities for expansion in labour utilisation are in the informal sector, and the main policy challenge is to support the calling forth of supply-side development for improved rural production as the soundest base for economic improvement for the majority of the populations in Pacific island nations. This book focuses on the issue of labour resource utilisation in Melanesia, and aims to improve perceptions that economic opportunities can be created by Melanesians in their own places and substantially using their own resources.
