Kind of a superficial study. The island of Niihau, just off of Kauai is far more significant than all the others put together. It has been owned by the Robinson family since before I lived on Lanai about 60 years ago. It has been preserved so that the native hawaiians still speak the original language and keep the same lifestyle.
I do not think the people from Lanai are overjoyed by the sale from Dole Pineapple ownership to the present owner. Nobody will be able to own their own house. They live a delicate balance of needing enough work to exist and the new property values that may endanger their future. Life on Lanai is a very fascinating topic from the viewpoint of a Social Anthropoligist.
And who cares and does this put any more money in my pocket or lower the price of a gallon of gas for the avg.-person?
What passes for news worthy items is like junk food...we now have junk news items....
You have got to be kidding with this kind of fail story... who the hell are you even reporting this to the 1% that can actually afford to waste such funds on a damn island 0.0 Seriously MSN...get a damn hobby these 1%ers more than have the means to waste if they are so inclined to buy an island.... Why dont you actually do something useful with your platform rather than waste it with nonsense reporting such as this.
As beautiful as they are, I would go crazy after to much time on one of those islands. I need the convenience of the American town for everyday living. A week at Neckar with a half dozen supermodels would be great though.

Today's headline event came in the form of Ben Bernanke's testimony before the Joint Economic Committee. During his remarks, Chairman Bernanke said premature tightening of monetary policy could stall the pace of recovery. This followed weeks of conflicting remarks from FOMC members, which sparked speculation regarding possible changes to the Fed's policy course.
