Just briefly, Focus on the Global South have published an article by Chanida Chanyapate and Alec Bamford that discusses “The Rise and Fall of the Sufficiency Economy” (picked up via Prachatai). It will be of interest to many New Mandala readers.

Chanida and Bamford conclude that:

If more attention were paid to what is happening on the ground, if the ideas and principles of those who are already practicing the sufficiency economy were better known, then perhaps the serene smile of the sufficiency economy will replace the smirk of capitalism.
