MOST PEOPLE are worried the economy will be crippled by the Bangkok Shutdown, according to Suan Dusit Poll.

About 54 per cent of the 1,159 people polled in Greater Bangkok said they were afraid the mass rallies planned by the anti-government movement to paralyse the capital would strangle economic activity.
About three out of four of the respondents were apprehensive about the escalation of the situation. 
When asked about their feelings toward the Bangkok Shutdown, 47 per cent asked all sides to think about the public’s common interest. 
The opinion survey was conducted from Thursday to Saturday.
