We haven’t had much discussion of $ufficiency economy here lately, so I was pleased to see this short article in The Nation:

Govt approves 2nd phase of sufficiency community project.

The government has approved the second phase of the sufficiency community project worth Bt5 billion, Deputy Prime Minister Korbsak Sabhavasu said Thursday. The second phase covers 17,000 communities. Earlier, the government allocated Bt6.05 billion for the first phase that covers 3,000 communities, he said.

The first phase of $ufficiency was certainly much more generous (about 2,000,000 baht per community) than the second phase (only about 300,000 baht per community). What’s going on? If anyone has any details on how much $ufficiency two million (or 300 thousand) can buy, please let us know.
