Abstract

The costs of "development" are often discussed superficially but seldom evaluated systematically. This book is a valuable case study which looks at one aspect of the problem in relation to the Bougainville copper mine, largest economic enterprise in the Pacific. The aspect studied is compensation for loss of rights to land, plant, access, fish, asumed tranquillity and aesthetic changes to the environment. During 1973-74, the Company paid out over a million dollars in compensation to village landowners in the mining area. More continues to be paid for lease rentals and other uses.
