The Hawaiian plantation era comes to an end.
watch what happens now. the next Oahu so sad for Maui
Hawaii’s demise is Wall Street’s cash cow.
Wow! An analysis that doesn’t blame the death of sugar on those nasty environmentalists. How novel.
The only ones who have been pointing the finger at people opposed to some of the HC&S practices have been those with an ax to grind but no facts to rely on. They spread their lies in the hopes that something sticks.
This was a business decision driven by market factors, no more, no less.
A&B has many options. Lease or sell some land to developers for more homes, etc. Using some of the land for coffee, other produce is another option.
What we do not want to see is giving the land to the state where it would be trashed.
Hawaii ‘ s lack of leadership is an opportunity for Wall Street to lead us their way.
A&B deserves credit for keeping it going as long as they have considering the losses they experienced. I don’t see why Meco should cut off power purchases just because they burned coal. It’s not like the diesel and low sulphur oil they burn is much cleaner.
