This book takes an economic-historical approach and gives an account of marketing and price stabilization in Papua New Guinea ' s copra industry . Although the subj ect is a relatively narrow one, it merits being seen in the wider context , as an aspect of the economic history of Papua New Guinea . The book concludes that laissez - faire marketing before World War II held back the coconut industry , and that the oligopoly of two Australian companies was detrimental to the interests of villagers and planters alike . Government monopoly in overseas marketing , introduced as a wartime measure and continued since then , and compulsory price stabilization , have been of great value to the industry, and their continuation is recommended.
