Cassowaries or Cash? A Case Study of Some Constraints on Rural Development in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea
Powell, J. P.
Community Development Journal, 10, 3, 189-97, Oct 75
The author encountered many obstacles to Papua New Guinea's transformation from a subsistence to a cash economy during two months' field work: the people's conservatism, lack of confidence, indifference to cash, and deep commitment to tradition. These, and "subsistence affluence," warn against hastily exposing the people to inflation's hardships. (Author/AJ)
