Politics, Economy… The situation is worsening in Thailand.

The country is on a bumpy road. “Once again” we could say, due to the history.

But this time, it’s different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable disparition of King Bhumibol, and his succession.

A great power play is unfolding.

The King has so much power on the soul of his people, that this event could have tremendous consequences on the country.

The purpose of this blog is to help foreigners (us, farangs) to avoid the propaganda, to try to correctly assess the situation. Many of us have interests and affection for this country.

As for myself, I live most of the time in Thailand. But hopefully, I do travel a lot in Europe. It allows me to… balance my views. And to keep a relative sanity. 😉

I do apologize to my readers. I try my best to avoid mistakes (wrong spellings and other grammar issues), but English is not my native language.

    Baht strengthens- real estate suffers

    However, we expect the impact of the strong Baht to be more negative than positive on the real estate sector.”

    Great blog, would you be interested in a link exchange with my site? (www.bangkokdiaries.com)
    Could I reproduce a few of your posts there, with full credits to you and your blog included?

  3. 4 sanamjun_guy 21 January 2008 at 2:38 pm

    I think that the ICT may find this website at some point. How can we organize to defend it and similar ones and the views expressed here? Any ideas?

  4. 5 thaicrisis 21 January 2008 at 2:51 pm

    -> Sanamjun. Do not worry. I think the ICT has many other things to do right now, rather than to take interest in this blog 😉

    First thing on their agenda : to find a new job… I remind you that we have a “new” team at the government… And they must be really pissed off… ICT has “played” with many of the pro-Thaksin websites since the Coup. 😉

    However, I warn you, I can’t keep comments referring to controversial rumors linked to private life, like you did in another comment.

  5. 6 sanamjun_guy 23 January 2008 at 2:46 pm

    fair enough, thai crisis. Let’s give the royalty a private life. I’ve been here too long, perhaps. So….sorry. Wasn’t it nice to see HRH Crown Prince…opening the new session of parlaiment?

  6. 7 The Ghost 10 June 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Really love this blog. Have for some time now. But it got banned a while backa nd I thought you were done in Thailand. Only this week did I rediscover your feed was working again.

    I’ve quoted you in a story on the “Russian Invasion” i just wrote on my blog. Click my name to get there.

  7. 8 thaicrisis 10 June 2008 at 4:45 pm

    Hi The Ghost, don’t worry, I’m still there, TC was not banned. And why it would be ? 😉

  8. 9 dooda 3 October 2008 at 1:50 am

    how about adding a “recent comments” section to your blog?

  9. 10 olivier 7 October 2008 at 10:01 am

    good website, i am french and i was looking informations about thai estate and finance market, quite difficult to find. thanks for your blog !

  10. 11 Peter4 10 October 2008 at 11:13 am

    Minimum daily requirements to sustain expat life in Thailand: air, water, food, and the latest updates from Thai Crisis.
    This blog is getting more important with every passing day.
    Sanamjun_guy and The Ghost asked about blocking.
    If that ever happens, here are two suggestions for readers inside Thailand.
    Both are free and easy to use on any computer:

    1.) Use a proxy server.
    Will make your computer appear to be located somewhere else.
    Many proxy servers free, just slow.
    Faster proxies require a paid fee.

    2.) Use a newsreader for the RSS feed here.
    Many free newsreader programs available.
    I use RSS reader ‘Shrook’ for Macintosh.
    Never any problem reading this blog and comments.
    For beginners to newsreaders, have a look at Google’s offering: http://reader.google.com/

    More details about proxy servers and newsreaders on http://www.Live.com or http://www.CUIL.com, or (if you must) on http://www.Google.com.

    What you write here
    “The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable disparition of King Bhumibol, and his succession.” I do not agree. The current problem is primarily Thaksin. There may be more complicated matters which I have explained in my website. http://www.antithaksin.com which do not conform with your suggestion here.

    What you write here
    “The King has so much power on the soul of his people, that this event could have tremendous consequences on the country.”
    I agree.

    The problem is Thais have to sort themselves out before we loose superior beloved institution because of the course of the nature. Thaksin gets in the way of our path to an evolving democracy, like Thailand’s democracy were still a todler. Before the parents take the course of the nature, the todler has to turn strong.
    Actually, how the todler can turn to be a strong teenager or a mature adult is not that difficult, through good education through public media. But Thai public media are full of rubbish. I believe that is the real issue, not the problems like what you raise.

    Though you have been in several parts of the world and spend very long time in Thailand, you may have fair visions on Thais. Still, I do not believe you would appreciate some important aspects of Thais which would enable you to get to some of the actual problems.
    Your approach with using tangible figures, statistic, or solid facts presentation on Thailand are very good while the touch on numbers of Les Majeste cases with a description of hysteria are unfair. Hysteria may be on the Thaksin’s supporter side who some of them used to be or remain to be communists and anti-royal. As opportunists, they are now campaigning against the monarch to push Thaksin up to be a president.

  12. 13 ThaiCrisis 3 November 2008 at 5:54 pm

    ->Ronayos : you do have a point. Thaksin is of course part of the equation, of the problem should I say.

    (when i say Thaksin, it’s a shortcut of course. Thaksin is not alone, it’s not only a matter of man, because he represents a real political force, we can’t deny it).

    Without Thaksin, the royal succession would be of course… easier, less dangerous. Albeit we could discuss this point.

    Even without Thaksin in sight, the next King would be obviously very different than Rama IX… It will be in any case a whole new page (maybe less prestigious or powerful) for the thai monarchy.

    As for the “lese-majeste hysteria”, I stick to my point. It is indeed a form of hysteria. It’s negative. There is no way you can pretend to solve the political situation in Thailand by using, promoting such law.

    Furthermore, this law has been totally perverted by politicians and other forces.

    The bottom line, the basic principle is : the situation in which a man or an institution needs such a repressive law to be loved or respected is not… a healthy one (understatement…).

  13. 14 dooda 4 November 2008 at 4:02 am

    “The bottom line, the basic principle is : the situation in which a man or an institution needs such a repressive law to be loved or respected is not… a healthy one (understatement…).”

    i would argue that that is not situation for Rama IX. he doesnt “need” such law to be loved and respected… he earned it well through his own deeds. anyway how effective is that law really? look the prince and the other royals who also protected by the lese majeste… is the prince and they love and respect widely and deeply by Thais? if the King did not have the real and many good deeds he done over the long long years, he could not acquire and maintain this kind of big popularity.

  14. 15 ronayos 4 November 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Dear cthai2 (at) yahoo. com

    Thank you for your reply to my comments. I would say that as you are a foreigner, i.e., you are really not a Thai, you have got a lot of the issues about Thailand on the table already. I would like to see, however, the right stress on the right cause, that is Thaksin, not the changing course of the Monarchy.

    HM the King has been highly respected and morally trusted by majority Thais as high as a father, a god or a religion prophet. On the othe hand, he has a lot of limitation to react to criticisms. Certainly, Thais do not want anybody to insult or make use of the monarchy such as what happened in UK, with British Royal Family in TV comedies, or the late Princess Diana who was very much violated until one leading to her pityfull death. The laws are supposed to effectively protect him.

    My believe supported by a lot of evidences is that Thaksin is seriously trying to lead the change as supported by his left-wing subordinates to be like Nepal, Russia, France rather than Sweden, Japan or UK.

    Please let me make some more clarification further about the Les Majesty charge. If you have the actual statistic, you would notice that obviously under Thai military or dictaror governments in the age of cold war, this was definitely an effective dangerous political tool. I absolutely agree if you call that hysterical.

    However, after the reconciliation with communist guerrilla in Gen.Prem Tinasulanond’s PM term, upto the first term of ex-PM Thaksin in 2004, the charges were not significantly abused.

    Until later, it is likely that the number of Les Majesty charge has been rising up eversince the second term of Thaksin to now. Thaksin got only one charge of this by 2006-coup junta while he was in exile in 2007 but the attorney general lifted the case. More particular, I believe, it has been much higher recently under civillian governments of Samak and Somchai. Does this prove that these governments are abusing the laws to use against PAD like what they filed the lethal Treason charges on PAD core activists? YES!!!

    Also, on Thaksin’s supporters’ side, Jakrapop, DaTorpedo, Suchart Nakbangsai and some anti-royalists because of their obvious actions may be justly alleged for under this law. YES!!! Therefore, it is not hysterically overreaction of the law enforcement. Actually, it is the hysterically fashionable for left-wing Thaksin’s supporters to run campaigns against the monarchy.

    Though the immediate effects of the charge may be the same because of the laws and the code for legal proceedings have not changed, but the final verdicts of the cases are different between the old age hysterical charges and the last decade charges. The differnt factors between the cold-war era cases and the last-decade cases are that the latter cases need to be more transparent upon reaching the verdicts.
    – the collateral reports of the media such as newspapes, internet, TVs.
    – the generations of people with domestic and international views across the borders.
    – the judiciary system.

    So, should we not get so hysterical about the laws, in order to really appreciate the actual crisis?
    To be fair, we should look carefully into the detail case by case. The rising numbers of Les Majeste do not come from the presence of the laws. It is from the people who willingfully commit the crimes either to abuse the laws or to abuse the monarchy and these people are the cause of Thai crisis.

  15. 16 Doomed 14 November 2008 at 7:52 am

    I read somewhere that the IMF debt that Thailand incurred in 1997 was not really paid off, but refinanced through long term bonds sold outside of Thailand. I am still trying to find out whether this has any truth in it. Do you know anything?

  16. 17 ThaiCrisis 14 November 2008 at 8:07 am

    ->Doomed : I’ve got no idea.

  17. 18 Frank 6 January 2009 at 10:42 am


    I remember vaguely that the IMF loan was financed by way of local bond issuance (not sure if Vayupak Funds are in any way related). In any case, this is largely of no relevance as Thailand’s current foreign reserves now are in excess of its total external debt and liabilities.

    On the on-going discussion between ThaiCrisis and ronayos, perhaps you both can agree with me that should Thailand wish to maintain a democratic face to the world, all sides must acknowledge the baggage that comes with democracy: pluralism, tolerance and the rule of law. Social harmony is indispensable in any nations. But only fools are willing to be deluded that unresolved issues should be avoided at all costs.

    Lastly, at the risk of spouting a platitude I feel obliged to say that democracy is derived from demos (people) + cracy (form of government). As such sovereign powers are derived from the people alone and no other institutions. They can be ‘exercised’ via various instruments including kings, princes, parliaments, national assemblies, etc. Thus far–thanks to lese majeste law–free and public discussion on the source of sovereignty in Thailand is severely lacking. Unless this ambiguity is dealt with it will be hard to imagine whether Thailand will choose to fulfill its democratic commitments or revert to the pre-1932 days.

  18. 19 Jerry 14 January 2009 at 1:19 pm

    After the big interest cut, THB ROSE against dollar, euro, pound, yen, etc.. any world currency.
    Again, against any logic…
    Inteerst rate drop more than expected and the currency rises like crazy in just few hours.
    Export collpasing, all jewelry and clothing business is virtuall in bankrupcy and in few months we will have dzoens of thousand of people jobless, confidence index at its lowest, the most unstable politics of the region, the hardest laws against investment in the region, TWIn DEFICITS, etc etc and THB rising, rising, rising like crazy (since early December up almost 3% against the USD and up against almost every world currency).
    96% of former investors who know buy in other market blame the baht as cause and tourists also state will never come back here becuase in neighbour countries they have bettwer services and half of the prices.

    Maybe is BOT trying to beat the world record of the highest overestimated currency in the world ?
    Look at the HDI index, all countries in the similar ranking of Thailand have a basic staple (basket of products) much cheaper than Thailand.

    Everything is poiting at a highly overvalued currency which value is ABSURD specially if compared to the trend of neighbour countries.

  19. 20 Jerry 14 January 2009 at 1:21 pm

    Also, I forgot to say Standard and Poor downgraded The risk of investment in Thailand…just one little thing more…and after that announcement ,THB rose like crazy too…

    All that makes no sense at all…

  20. 21 loic 31 January 2009 at 3:36 am

    this blog is very interesting but I cannot agree with all.
    first, I find almost all comments too pessimist even if they are realist?.
    reading all this is not encouraging for staying,coming,investing in thailand…and I do not think the purpose of this blog is to discourage everybody to live in thailand!
    about the supposed overvaluation of the THB I remark it is in fact very stable now for years(45 to 50/€).and when I travel to europe I do not feel the THB overvalued at all!!.
    ok..maybe I am stupid and have to run to sell all my THB and thai stocks and flee all my money…but where??!!
    so thank you for all interesting comments about the situation in thailand even if I would like read sometimes more positive views.

  21. 22 Jerry 4 February 2009 at 9:30 am

    Of course THB is extremely overvalued.
    Virtually all world currencies in developing countries have seen their currencies plunging in the past months, Thailand is the exception,athough its economy and political situation nis amongst the worst of all them.
    Not only asian currencies, russian-all former sovier countries, the whole of south american, Mexico, all currencies have lost beween 10% and 50% against the USD, THB is at the same value of 3-4 months ago when the brunt of the crisis started, despite the disaster of its endless turmoils.
    THB is set to plunge one day, but we don t know when. Theorically it could be still kept stable for longer since int. reserves are huge enough. FOR NOW.

  22. 23 Doomed 15 February 2009 at 1:14 pm

    Well, I’m back again having found a report on Thailand’s debts.

    What do you make of this?


    As regards the widely hoped for “fall of the Baht”. Maybe we are just heading back towards the pre-1997 Asian crash levels? The western economies are in a huge mess, with massive asset bubbles collapsing. All that is happening in Asia is reduced trade and tourism. I suspect that the Asians will be increasing focussed internally in Asia until the West get their banking systems in order, which will be a huge and costly undertaking, sending them all the tax payers into debt for the next couple of generations.

    And if other foreigners here are doing what I’ve done; move enough money across to keep me securely for the next eight years or so, then the demand for Baht will increase. And to be honest I feel a lot more secure with Thai banks than any of the European banks, where not only is it uncertain which bank will fail next, but also which COUNTRY will default next.

    How about Thailand as a safe banking refuge? Stable currency, 100% guarantee (OK, I know that this is being reduced), and with interest rates everywhere approaching zero, income is no longer paramount but return OF capital is…..

    Today nearly everyone and nearly every country including Japan Singapore Germany UK and USA are in recession and unemplyment is getting worse. Nearly everyone and every country are poorer not just Thailand. It is Global. Do not try to be Thailand’s doctor doom.

  24. 25 ThaiCrisis 14 March 2009 at 5:43 am

    Well, you should ask Abhisit. He has clearly a different view. What is obvious for you now, wasn’t 2 years ago for most of the people. Or even 1 year ago.

    As for the doctor Doom, well I’m sorry to contradict you, but I am.

    When the thais were talking about the gender of angels, cars and new condos to buy… I started this blog in june 2007 with a clear title ThaiCrisis.

    Politics + economy = CRISIS.

    It’s a statement and a proof as well.

    So don’t patronize me.

    Careful, Dr. Doom is very sensitive to criticism and does not take well to people speaking to him the way he speaks about them. He is sort of like an enraged poodle in the back seat of a locked car, foaming at everyone who passes by for reasons known only to him. I predict he may be asked to find a new home if he keeps up his barking. Unfortunately for him, everyone will have so tired of his attitude by then that no one come to his defense. Then he can bark at Gordon Brown back home in sunny England.

    14 January 2009 at 1:19 pm

    The Thai baht is higher than it “should be” because the economy is based on foreign direct investment in real estate, agricultural exports and tourism. All of this brings inflows that must be converted to Baht. Since all of these components are headed south one could reasonably expect to see the baht decline in the future but the US dollar’s own decline has postponed the date.

  27. 28 ThaiCrisis 14 March 2009 at 7:50 am

    Thanks Lek : that’s a good summary.
    I remind you what you told me : I’m on therapy.

    Do you teach in Thailand? I feel as though you should be a teacher, or journalist, or political adviser! If you are none of these, are you considering any of them?

  29. 30 ThaiCrisis 26 March 2009 at 7:12 am

    No I’m not a teacher. But in a previous life, I was indeed a journalist.

  31. 32 Jerry 6 June 2009 at 1:29 pm

    The THB should be at about 40-42 for 1 USD, if you see the historical exchange rates of the past 10 years and you add inflation and you cross with the other asian countries, the THB current value is the biggest scam of financial history.
    Thailand has one of the worst economies in the area, and it has NEVER been one of the best when asian tigers were booming, its politics is amongst the world’s most unstable, the civil war in the south is endless and without any solution, the country risk is one the highest, the interest rates one of the lowest, the laws for foreigner investments one of the harshest, nevertheless THB is one of the strongest currencies in the world.
    Its value is completely artificial and it has nothing to do with the country reality.
    It is just a game for the interest of big fish who has billions of dollars of black money invested here.
    Just take all staple basic items and compare their cost with any country in the similar ranking of Thailand GDP and HDI:Thailand is by far the most expensive country, and it is double as expensive of countries which HDI rankings are 20-30 positions higher.
    At the long term this imbalances will need to close, as when the THB in the late 1990s was at about 45THB it was too undervalued with staple basic items costs lower than those of Bolivia for example.
    Today Thailand staple in USD are more expensive that ones of Chile,Argentina,Uruguay and Costa Rica for example, 10 years ago they were at 40% to 60% of their prices.
    If you think that s nothing to do with exchange rate, you are wrong. It is not related in the short term, but in the long term this value of the THB is unsustainable.
    Import is going to increase, while exports will follow its total crash (coz 96% of the investors who are avoiding buying in Thailand give THB strenght as main reason for that): trade balance is going to close, while public debt will balloon.
    As soon as neighbour countries export will start to recover, the Thai lack of competivness will result more evident and a decision about the exchange rate will need to be taken.

  32. 33 ThaiCrisis 6 June 2009 at 11:55 pm

    Jerry : I have never said that the exchanges rates were not a real issue… My article was focused on the idea to consider exchanges rates as the only answer when confronted to falling exports.

    If you want to read more of me about THB-USD issue, you should consider this and that.

    I have constantly talked about “manipulation” regarding the THB, with the BOT, and the “peg” to the USD.

  33. 34 Jerry 7 June 2009 at 11:49 pm

    Actually, THB vs. USD is moving, sometimes quite fast, THB has gained 5% in few weeks.
    I have observed carefully the THB and the other asian currencies in the past few years and there is only 1 currency which has pretty much almost the same exchange rate vs. THB: The Singaporean Dollar.
    THB is following Singaporean Dollar, not USD.
    Than, Singaporean Dollar is related to USD , coz it is moving within a band….but, please, watch month by month for the past 3-4-5 years the THB rates vs. some asian currencies and vs. major currencies: they all have fluctuaction including USD, except the Singaporean currency.
    So, the THB-USD relationship is indirect.
    Thailand economy is completely different from that of Singapore’s : I don t think this pseudo-peg can work indefinitely as no peg has ever worked: I remember when everybody was praising Argentina peso parity with USD…and everybody was fully convinced that parity was deemed to be ethernal….or the THB at 25 for USD….if you prefer to stay closer….well,…nothing is ethernal,,the pseudo-pegs are not even long-lasting…

  34. 35 Jerry 10 June 2009 at 12:46 pm

    Your last analysis is correct but short-sighted, in fact THB has been rising like crazy against these currencies like Brazilian real, Russian roble, Indian rupiah, etc….
    May gains of these currencies followed months of COLLAPSE against the USD…Brazilian real from 1.55 to current 2.00, Indian rupiah from 39 to 47, Roble from 24 to 31…
    So if we compare these booming (now not so booming, but still MILLIONS times better than broken Thai economy) countries currencies vs the THB , THB is much much more expensive compared to these currencies and compared to most currencies in the world.
    But what a pity, Thailand has a much worse economy, terrible public debt, one of the worse political situation in the world, civil war in the south, one of the lowest interest rates, but its currency one of the strongest in the world (only one month May 2009 is a short period of time, you should look at a longer trend).
    The obvious conclusion in THB is by far the world most overvalued currency, as Thai property market is also one of the world most overvalued market….. still asking $10000 a square meter amongst the horrible smog and traffic of Sukhuvit Road, when for 10 TIMES LESS you can buy a property in front of the beach in Florida 50 km from Miami….
    Both THB and property market are deeply overvalued

  35. 36 ThaiCrisis 10 June 2009 at 3:35 pm

    Jerry : I didn’t try to compare THB with other BRIC currencies. I was just focusing on the BOT foreign currency reserves, and the couple THB-USD.

    Now, regarding the issue of the THB “valuation”. It’s a tricky and very relative issue. When you say that the THB is “one of the strongest” in the world, I don’t really agree. Compared to what ? And within which time frame ? in 1997 we could indeed say that the THB was vastly overvalued (1 USD = 25 THB). So now, at 35 ?

    An analysis more like “purchasing power parity” would be better. Like for instance how much local money (+ value in USD) to buy 1 liter of gasoline for instance.
    Or something I like very much : the Big Mac Index (from The Economist).

    This system tells us that… the THB is undervalued against the US Dollar ! 😉

  36. 37 Jerry 10 June 2009 at 6:49 pm

    That s completely FALSE
    THB is terrible OVERVALUED compared to any currency in the world: The Big mac index is the most stupid statics ever made.
    You can compare Thai prices of staple which is EXTREMELY more expensive than countries much richer and adavnced than Thailand in every aspect:GDP, HDI, etc..
    THB has been one of the strngest currencies in the world..the 25 /1USD value you talking about is completely bullshit and nosense, that was anartificial value, the real value we saw later at over 50 for 1USD (57 in fact)…
    Compared to which currencies ??
    Compared to all the third world countries currencies THB HAS RISEN LIKE CRAZY despite being a much poorer, undeveloped country with a very bad GDP growth.

    Take the 200 world currencies one by one and make the comparision of the past 10 years and add it the inflation rate too (if you don t do that it will be a nonsense statistic): the result is clear: THB is the most overvalued currency in the world, how can one by so idiot to put only the price of a Big Mac ?
    I made a grill with over 50 basic prices amongst countries with simlar and higher HDI than Thailand: the result is clear.

    THB value is the biggest scam in financial history, look the south korean won, the indian rupiah, all the latinamerican cuurencies, all african currencies, etc…in the past 5 or 10 years they are all between 10% and 100% lower compared to THB ,despite Thailand having by far the most unstable politics and amongst THE LOWEST GDP growth rate.
    THB should be at least 45 for 1 USD which is still more expensive than its value post 1997 crisis .

    PS: Now THb is not 35 , but buying rate today is 33.7 …still rising like crazy despite Thai economy performing much worse than US economy (2009 GDP plunge in Thailand will be worse)

  37. 38 Jerry 4 November 2009 at 12:08 am

    It is not casual the peaks in export of jewelry coincides with the bi-yearly Bangkok Gems and Jewelry fair which is held in late February and mid September of every year.
    Actually, I work in this sector of export too and I call assure you jewelry business is going bad for 90% of Thai small-medium companies.
    Who is making a fortune are just a couple of big fish who managed to get really big customers from new markets like: Middle East, Turkey, Russia, China and Brazil.

    THB might not be overvalued for the current buy and offer situation, but if we really talk about long term instrinc capital in Thailand , THB is highly overvalued…
    it is just surviving for a huge black money from allover the world which is disguised in exchange rate companies (you know which one I mean) which are controlled by the army and in turn by (you know WHO I mean)…
    a single catalyst (you know which catalyst I mean) would be enough to destroy all this situation like a castle of cards….
