Guam and the Consortium
Beneblog: Technology Meets Society
MARCH 5, 2008
The final stop for my Micronesia trip was Guam, a U.S. Arriving on Guam felt like coming back to the United States, although it's more like Hawaii than the mainland! Guam has a huge American military presence: the armed forces control about a third of the island. is relocating our units from Okinawa to Guam and this could grow the island's population anywhere from 20% to 40%. The military and tourism are Guam's two big industry.
