    A perfect microcosm of of the lifecycle of Capitalism. This is coming to the rest of the world soon should we do nothing to stop it.

    A world within a world. There is only one outcome when greed is at the helm.

    I wonder what would have happened if “settlers” had never found this island.

    Sad but true. Nothing lasts forever. The rest of us should remember that and treasure what we have left

    Dutch disease, a problem with single resource economies. This is an imminent threat to many oil rich nations. There are those that diversify like Norway, which functions like a giant hedge fund. Then those that get Venezuelaed. 🤔 I wonder if Nauru has been roped into the Pacific islands chess game between Taipei and Beijing?
