Chapter 21 – Hawai‘i Today

The story of Hawai‘i since statehood is that of major growth. Four factors made this growth happen:

  1. Resources that include land, people, climate, and scenery
  2. Hawai‘i’s location in the middle of the Pacific, making it a center for transportation, travel, and defense
  3. Hawai‘i’s being part of the United States, giving it a high standard of living
  4. Rapid changes in technology such as jumbo jets, computers, and satellites, followed by the digital world of the new century
