Based on credible economic experts, it is highly unlikely that we will see any significant improvement in the overall economy for many months - if not years. Even when a bottom finally forms it will take several years to return to the level Maui tourism of two or three years ago. We are in an economic correction (recession) that will be with us for some time. Life is about to get much more basic.

Yes Maui, keep telling the state and the rest of the world how you dislike visitors coming to your island.

With the climing unemployment in Maui there will trouble. Deportation will come for the illegal aliens living and working in Maui. It is only a matter of time. The local folks need to voice there concern to the state and county officials on this matter. We will need all avaiable jobs in Maui for our legal residents.
