Make up your own mind
I have to salute The Nation for offering a variety of interpretations of events. In the op-ed section of August 29, Pornpimol Kanchanalak compares governmental price intervention on behalf of farmers to a pusher giving drugs to addicts.
In the business section of the same day, in a Bloomberg article, potential intervention by the central bank is seen as containing excessive moves (downwards, I'm sure) in the SET. So, government help for the poor is irresponsible, while helping the rich is behaving responsibly.
