The trickle down effects of Capitalism: A view from Port Moresby

Powered by projects like LNG PNG, the skyline of Papua New Guinea's capital Port Moresby is changing.

Luxury Apartments

Advertised at $8500 US p/m.

Luxury accomodation for the visitor

About $500 US per night

Want a relaxing Saturday fry-up, the Yacht club does a cracking one 

Entry by invitation only, of course!

How do the other half live (well other 99% to be precise)

People keep nice houses, there are sports, and plenty of talk and fun ... but still the trickle down effect of capitalism is taking its time, it seems to have bottlenecked somewhere, LNG WATCH wonders just where?
