PacNet #11R – Response to PacNet #11 “Class, Economy, Monarchy: Thailand’s Multidimensional Malaise”

David Camroux mentioned in “Class, Economy, Monarchy: Thailand’s Multidimensional Malaise” (PacNet #11) the paddy/rice pawning scheme, which the IMF says should stop. In fact the scheme deserves much more attention. It is riddled with organized corruption and it shows how much damage the money politics of the “Thaksin Regime” has created in Thailand.
