Pala Molisa is the son of two of the leading lights of Vanuatu’s independence movement, onetime Vanua’aku Pati cabinet minister Sela Molisa and civil servant and author/poet Grace Molisa.

He represented Vanuatu in weightlifting at the Commonwealth Games, and he is an advocate of a radical new accountancy that brings a whole raft of social indicators to your typical balance sheet.

Dr Pala Molisa is currently a lecturer at Victoria University Business School in Wellington, New Zealand, and talks to RNZ Sunday presenter Wallace Chapman about his critical ideas on neoliberalism.
