What is POP?

Price of Paradise
[an error occurred while processing this directive]
The Price of Paradise is a new series in the Star-Bulletin, renewing a name and concept originated by Randy Roth in 1992. The new series appears each week in the Sunday Insight section.

Price of Paradise began as a book of essays compiled by Roth, a law professor at the University of Hawaii. POP, as it became known, later evolved into a long-running series of Sunday newspaper articles, a radio show and a second book.

The mission of POP is to contribute lively and informed dialog about public issues, particularly those having to do with our pocketbooks.

The dialog on each issue begins with opinion pieces by local experts.

From there, we open things up to letters and e-mails from readers, which we publish weekly in Thursday's paper.

If you have thoughts to share about the POP articles, please send them, with your name and daytime phone number, to, or write to Price of Paradise, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 7 Waterfront Plaza, Suite 210, 500 Ala Moana, Honolulu, HI 96813.
