Thaksinomics: A New Asian Paradigm?
The Thai economy has performed extremely well in recent years.
What is especially interesting is the unique set of economic
policies implemented during this period of accelerated growth.
Often dubbed "Thaksinomics," these policies represent a distinct
break from the past. To Prime Minister Thaksin's followers the
new economic measures are not only capable of returning Thailand
to the pre-1997 glory days of high growth, but perhaps even
more importantly, enabling the country to successfully coexist
economically with China.
