Title: Macroeconomic multipliers : the case of Guam

Author: Ruane, Maria Claret M.
Subject:  Recession
 Multiplier (Economics)
Volume: Vol.31 no.1, 2011
Collation: p. 141-155

Abstract: Macroeconomic multipliers are often used to estimate the economic impact of a prospective change. They were recently used by the U.S. Navy to analyse the impact on Guam’s economy of the proposed build-up of U.S. military force on Guam in 2010-2014, which is valued at $15 billion. The paper aims to (1) take a standard spending multiplier and present a conceptual framework for how to adjust it to better reflect Guam’s specific economic conditions, and (2) criticize the U.S. Navy’s study that used Hawaii’s multiplier in analyzing Guam’s economy, thus overstating the economic benefits of the proposed change.

Title: The Magnus Effect and the Flettner Rotor : potential application for future Oceanic shipping

Author: Nuttall, Peter, Kaitu'u, John
Subject:  Wind Energy Technology
Volume: Vol.36 no.2, 2016
Collation: p. 162-183

Abstract: Shipping is the lifeline of the Pacific. All current sea-transport options are fossil fuel powered and increasingly unsustainable. Globally, a range of renewable energy technologies is emerging with application in commercial shipping, including wind, solar and bio- fuels/gases. Such technologies have, to date, received little attention in the development of alternative energy solutions for Oceania, despite transport being the largest user of fossil fuels by Pacific Island Countries (PICs) and exploration of appropriate technologies for PIC sea-transport is currently embryonic. Anton Flettner invented and proved the Flettner Rotor that utilises the Magnus effect for propulsion in the 1920s as an effective method of reducing fuel use and increasing ship stability for commercial blue water shipping. The then low cost of fossil fuels and the emerging diesel ship propulsion engineering did not see the idea progress past the initial prototypes. The technology was briefly revisited in the 1980s. In the past decade a number of leading shipping designers and researchers have begun seriously reinvestigating modern application of Flettner technology with impressive results. This technical review documents the literature of this technology to make it available to researchers seeking potential means for reducing Oceanic shipping costs for both transport and fishing at all levels of vessel size.

Title: Making a case for peace journalism in Fiji

 Fiji|Politics and government|Press coverage.
Volume: Vol.31 no.2, 2011
Collation: p. 277-292

Abstract: In a nation’s struggle for peaceful resolution to political conflict, reconciliation and good governance, the media is a watchdog, a source of information, education and inspiration as well as an outlet for self expression. The news media play a crucial role in peace processes but can also get caught up in the conflict. As the news media in Fiji struggles with its own history of reporting conflict in Fiji and with a repressive environmecnt under the Public Emergency Regulations and the Media Decree, this article strives to make a case for peace journalism for Fiji as a way forward for both the news media and the nation of Fiji .

Title: Making a scene : tropical island weddings : destination creation and the experience of place in the Cook Islands

Author: Jamieson, Tina
Subject:  Cook Islands|Narrative ethnography|Representation of paradise|Wedding tourism
Volume: Vol.26, 2002
Collation: p. 151-174

Abstract: This paper considers tropical island weddings as one example of how place is conceptualised and enacted in tourism to the Cook Islands. Representations of the Cook Islands as a holiday destination are examined, alongside the reported experiences of tourists whose prime reason for travelling there was to marry and/ or honeymoon in the Cook Islands. An articulation of these representations and embodied experiences translates the sense of a non-specific tropical island destination into an exclusive and utopian sense of place. Even though Pacific islands are constructed through alluring visual representations as tropical island paradise destinations, their success relies as much on tourists’ embodied experiences of them.

Title: Management education in the era of globalisation : challenges, prospects and the way forward for the South Pacific Region

Author: Naz, Rafia...[et al.]
Subject:  Management education

Volume: Vol.35 no.3, 2015
Collation: p. 79-94

Abstract: While internationally scholars have surveyed “management education in the era of globalisation” with reference to challenges and prospects within the context of HEIs, there is unquestionably a dearth of research investigation in the Pacific. The purpose of this paper is to discover the interconnection between globalisation and management education and draw from the review of the literature and the theoretical underpinnings, present the way forward in the milieu of a developing island state.

Title: Migrant labourers as British protected persons : the Gilbertese experience, 1892-1908

Author: Munro, Doug, McCreery, David, Firth, Stewart
Subject:  Indentured labour|Protectorates|Gilbertese labour|Kiribat
Volume: Vol.27 no.2, 2004
Collation:

Abstract: The process of labour migration, especially through indenture, was essential to the operation of European enterprises in various parts of the Pacific in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Treatment and conditions of labourers varied considerably but not for nothing was indenture sometimes called the ‘penal contract system’. This paper looks particularly at the nature of the ‘protection’ offered by colonial (especially British) powers as they groped to understand just what they meant by a ‘protectorate’. Seeking to understand the contrary British protection of Gilbertese labourers in German Samoa and the lack of institutional protection for Gilbertese labourers in Central America, the paper highlights the importance of the personal roles of individual actors in the colonial project whose efforts served to ameliorate somewhat the sad tale of this small group of inadequately protected ‘protected persons’.

Title: Monetary policy transmission in Pacific Island countries : a study of Tonga

Author: Jayaraman, T.K., Choong, Chee-Keong
Subject:  Monetary policy|Tonga
Volume: Vol.31 no.1, 2011
Collation: p. 93-116

Abstract: This paper undertakes an empirical study on how the monetary policy transmission mechanisms work in Tonga. Adopting a bounds testing approach, as the time series data cover a short period (1981–2008), the study shows that monetary aggregate is more important than short-term interest rate as a channel in transmitting impulses from the monetary sector to the real sector. The significant responses of both real output and price to the money variable confirm that policy makers should target monetary aggregate as the policy instrument, rather than interest rate, for controlling real activity and for price stabilisation in Tonga.

Volume: Vol.17, 1993
