    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 03/10/2016

    » I happened to be at an Apple store in the US when the iPhone 7 was launched. The store was certainly one of the busiest in town that day. I was there for an iPad, which was lucky because almost immediately after the new iPhones went on sale, they sold out.


    Yogyakarta: A city rich in culture and courage

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 26/08/2016

    » I just got back from a business trip to Yogyakarta last week, and I feel so lucky to have been born in Thailand. It's not because Yogyakarta -- everyone calls it Jogja -- is not a pleasant town, but because its people have to face so many challenges.


    The gig economy and the future of work

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 29/07/2016

    » For the past several years, I've spent a lot of time thinking about why we have to work the way we do. Why do we need to be in the same place from 9-5 for five days a week to do our jobs, when we could be anywhere in the world and still deliver exactly the same output? Why shouldn't we take on inspiring new projects whenever we want and work the hours that suit us?


    All eyes on the British vote on membership in the EU

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 24/06/2016

    » It's been almost impossible to turn on the TV lately without seeing a debate or analysis of whether the United Kingdom would be better off inside or outside the European Union. This morning many of you probably will be glued to your screens again as the votes in the Brexit referendum are counted. By around noon Thailand time, we should know whether Britons have chosen the status quo or an option seen as inconceivable not long ago.


    Leadership myths that could undo your progress

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 10/06/2016

    » Someone once told me that meeting old friends can lengthen your life. I couldn't agree more. Two weekends ago I had a really good dinner party with my childhood friends. Thirty-six years after we first met at kindergarten, 80 of us gathered again for one of the biggest reunions we'd ever held.


    Sleep your way to a better life

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 29/04/2016

    » I think April is a great month. Not only is it the start of Thai New Year, but also it gives me another chance to make New Year's resolutions -- if I had not done so in January or if the resolutions I made were already broken.


    An older, smaller world

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 25/03/2016

    » My grandmother just celebrated her 94th birthday this month. She is one of the lucky 0.2% of people aged over 90 in the world. Despite the more frequent economic and social crises that we face these days, we are actually living longer and healthier lives. The global median age has increased from 23.5 years in 1950 to 29.6 today and is projected to increase to 36.1 by 2050. This is also associated with a significant gain in global life expectancy -- from 47 years in the early 1950s to 70.5 today.


    Negative interest rates: another new normal?

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 26/02/2016

    » I went to the bank the other day and found one of the accounts I had put aside for many years had hardly increased in value. I never used to think much about my savings in the bank, as I always assumed that over time, money would work for you.


    When less could be more: Let's enjoy life in 2016

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 01/02/2016

    » I really like the first month of a new year, especially the first day. It feels like there is plenty of time left to begin doing new things and to consider the big picture. And even though the long holiday is over, there is no need to feel sorry. This is because more are around the corner -- Chinese New Year in February and the Thai New Year in April.


    Goodbye 2015: A farewell to easy money

    Business, Tientip Subhanij, Published on 25/12/2015

    » This Christmas marks the beginning of the end to an unprecedented era of easy money, a period in which businesses, investors and consumers had access to credit at cheaper prices. The US Federal Reserve last week voted unanimously to raise key interest rate by a quarter-percentage point after keeping rates near zero since the subprime crisis. The last increase was almost a decade ago in June 2006 -- a year before the first iPhone was released.
