Chart : Private Consumption, Investment, Manufacturing Production and Business Sentiment indexes

4 indexes (from the BOT) on the same chart.

Private Investment Index
Composite Private Consumption Index
Manufacturing Production Index
Business Sentiment Index

-The dip in april for Manufacturing is of course seasonal (Songkran holiday).
-The continous growth of private consumption is in line with other indicators.
-Private Investment after a peak in february goes down again. And Business Sentiment remain weak.

Usually, I’m not a big fan of indexes (people can argue indefinitely about components and… weights)… but… anyway the BOT did it. So I follow. 😉

You can have a look on the details of components on the website of the BOT.

Note : for the Business Sentiment Index, I’ve added 100 for a scale matter and to ease the reading (index april = 43, not 143).

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
