    Lessons of the nalinee debacle

    News, Published on 22/01/2012

    » Regarding your story yesterday, ''Strategists urge Nalinee to quit'', the debacle over the suitability of Nalinee Taveesin to be in cabinet has flushed out some important points. The first is the general probity of her as an individual. Her decision to undertake financial transactions with the cohort of a regime as loathsome as that of Robert Mugabe puts that into serious doubt.

    Trust no One

    News, Voranai Vanijaka, Published on 22/01/2012

    » Some have expressed incredulity that Thailand could possibly be a target for international terrorists. But why should anyone be incredulous? Are we not standing at the gateway of the Golden Triangle, renowned for its drug trade? Have we forgotten a Russian arms dealer named Viktor Bout?

    » Some cultures in the developed world have become so obsessed with safety awareness that they seem to have lost sight of common sense.

    Business before ethics

    News, Published on 28/01/2012

    » Re: Embattled Nalinee Taveesin. I think we're all looking at this the wrong way. For one, the Pheu Thai Party gave up worrying about its reputation a long time ago; in the current political climate all that matters is that most of their voters have never heard of Zimbabwe and couldn't care less. Also, the US blacklist is the result of America's own lofty ideals regarding justice and rights. Here in Asia, one wouldn't be so foolish as to let something as abstract as ethics get in the way of business opportunities.
