Those foreign academics who continue to criticise sufficiency economy just don’t understand Thai values! Here is some compelling data from Assumption University:

One in five teenagers will likely end up having sex on Valentine’s Day this year, according to a survey by Assumption University. The university polled 2,384 youths aged 12 to 19 and living in Bangkok and adjacent provinces between February 1 and February 9. “It’s worrying because 48.9 per cent of respondents also see sexual relationships as normal and about personal rights,” said Noppadon Kannika of Assumption University….

According to the survey, 55.9 per cent agreed with the use of His Majesty’s principle of Sufficiency Economy in solving the country’s crisis.

That is worrying!
