Asian countries are recovering from the recession quicker than the west. The euro is falling because of the debt problem in Greece, Spain, and Portugal. The US has 0 interest rates and it's own debt and political problem. Currency manipulation by the central bank. Last but not least. No matter who wins the current political battle in Thailand, it will be business as usual in this country. A person would have thought that after the coup in 06 foreign investment would have dropped like a rock, but it hasn't. I'm not an economist, just my view. I'm sure there are others out there who can give a more technical explanation.

Market dropped 3% at open today, down 2% at close. I read the entire GDP of 1% on political unreast. I'm repeating from memory, been reading all the twitter feeds upper L. How you figure out which part of the econmomy is due to global recession and which part dut to politics is beyond me.
Love the links via twitter. Great Al Jazeer video today. Thanks Somtam
This is a really good question though, I get £1000 pension a month and this year alone I have steadily "lost" 6000 Baht per month. Really hope things turn soon!
