Yeah seriously I heard from Lao poster so many time,when they here talk about the poverty in Thailand I think in some what they should do some research about its reason ,instead of blaming to the politician or central Thai. It too cheap.
It just like you mention before on GDP per capita Some time in 1 family which has 5 member only one work for feed other 4. In my view it about they cant control their agriculture product price ,and not has that much negotiation power. It just my 2 cents though
You're funny. Not all issan are farmer. There are politician, teachers, students, doctors, engineers, policeman.......etc. After graduation many of those have a hard time finding job, since many are in Bangkock, and many of those are reserved for well connected family. Rural go to city to look for job, but being asked why dirty people are here. Hello, Tax payer money is being spent mainly in bangkock, while country side infrastructure get far less. People can not live off the land like used to be anymore.
Many rural will take any job available, create their own opportunity, but still not enough, is not like they're waiting for hands out, which doesn't even exist to begin with. But central thai like to say, they need to learn how to fish. fish my arsss, they need better government that see their problems, spread wealth to rural, job opportunity, training, better schools, and hospital. Health and Social insurance do not provide universal coverage in Thailand but various provisions do exist to support the poor and sick. But Thaksin policies take care many of that issues, just like many western countries do. You help the sick, disable, blind, job less. He's a head of time while many dinosaur thai politicians still stuck in Chao nai and kee kha mentality.
