DR. KAUTU'U FUNAKI MIGHT WANT TO TAKE UP RELIGIOUS EVANGELISM INSTEAD OF PUSHING A HYPOTHESIS WITHOUT SUPPORTING CITATIONS AS AN ACADEMICIAN...His "no one enjoys being a beggar" comment illustrates his lack of contacts with beggars.
The current government of Tonga is one that enjoys receiving handouts from other countries without even trying to create their own economics wealth. Proves that beggars enjoy handouts as long as they keep themselves poverty-qualified by not even trying to better themselves: Cancelling the 2019 South Pacific Games by Tonga is a starter. Current government rather beg for handouts than take a risk with the Games.
Little wonder Dr. Funaki received a warm welcome at Tonga's PMO: He supports their do-nothing philosophy to keep "generosity" from foreign donors flowing in. It will keep Tonga perpetually poor, and a "beggar nation".
