Sonthi on sufficiency economy

“Every one should feel at ease [about the economy]. People have money but they aren’t spending it. This makes it look as if the economy is contracting. But it is not. Every one is exercising the sufficiency philosophy”

- General Sonthi Boonyaratglin, Head of the Council for National Security, quoted in “State of emergency still possible: Sonthi”, The Nation, 19 April 2007.
