Rebroadcast: The Price of Paradise


The gifts under the tree have all been opened and we’re contemplating or resolutions for the upcoming New Year.  How was 2018 on your pocketbook? Maybe you didn’t put up any lights to keep your energy costs down or did more online shopping... for some, the holidays are high stress... trying to fit more into an already strained budget.  

Today we revisit a show aired last October, focusing on “The Price of Paradise.”

Our guests are:

  • Hawaii economist Paul Brewbaker and principal of Tropic Zone Economics
  • Randy Roth co-author of the book Price Of Paradise published more than 25 years ago. He also hosted a show on Hawaii Public Radio trying to spotlight on rising cost of living.
