    News, Wichit Chantanusornsiri, Published on 27/04/2019

    » Without decisive winners from the March 24 poll, there are fears that political instability will affect the country's economy. Such concerns are understandable given that three parties, namely the pro-military Palang Pracharath Party, and Pheu Thai Party and Future Forward Party (which brand themselves as the anti-regime camp), are engaging in a post-election tug of war.

    News, Sirinya Wattanasukchai, Published on 05/04/2019

    » How many cards must a Bangkokian carry with them just so they can make their way through the ever-so busy and bustling capital? No, I'm not talking about credit, debit, or loyalty reward cards. I'm talking about the cards that a commuter must carry just so that can move from Point A to B.

    A taxing argument

    News, Postbag, Published on 24/03/2019

    » A reader in his March 23 letter makes a fair comment on two-tiered pricing for foreigners. But he then goes on to quantify the government's policy of a two-tiered charging system by saying that some farang do not pay taxes. I would dispute this. I am assuming by "some farang" he means tourists, as all foreigners living and working here pay tax in one form or another.

    Lack of unity in drug sweep

    News, Editorial, Published on 28/02/2018

    » The government has launched yet another series of anti-drugs sweep aimed at taming the North. They are part of the decades-old campaign to wipe out trafficking in illicit drugs. Authorities came up with reports to the public that had a very tired look and feel. A one-month "massive" suppression campaign resulted in the arrests of 63 suspects, the seizure of many kilogrammes of drugs and the unsurprising discovery of some 241 million baht of "assets" -- cash, gold, cars and motorcycles, up-scale homes, land and condominiums.

    Five commonly misunderstood market concepts, explained

    Business, Published on 23/03/2019

    » I am no political guru and am making no predictions about tomorrow's election outcome, so writing an article based on election results would be like gambling.
