The Falklands: An underutilised paradise?

Are the Falklands being used to their best advantage? In a recession, they could be an underutilised paradise with their jobs, white sandy beaches, wildlife, mountain ranges – and lack of people. The census shows that the islands have a less than 1% unemployment rate, and the average annual income of $32,213 is much higher than Argentina's $9,620 as of last year, or that of any of the Falklands' other Latin American neighbours. However, census released this month show the small population of 2,563 to have been static since 2006.
