History will record:

2004 Somare was in power and at the start of the economic boom and, while we may have disagreed with some of his politics and other antics, government spending and borrowing was under control.

2011 O'Neill seized power during the time the economic boom was slowing down and, by the total failure of the three tiers, his government proceeded to increase spending and borrowing beyond control.

2014 Government ignores recession after economic bust.

2015 Government denies recession after budget collapse.

2016 Government covers recession by borrowing more cash.

2017 PNG goes to elections with possibly the most corrupt government since 17 September 1975.

Does that about sum it up?
