  1. It's the system. In Thailand things happen, public works etc using an age old system which means that every hand the money passes through slips a little of it into a pocket. And every time any type of economic activity takes place, for example, has a stall or shop buying/selling goods, whether it be noodles or aeroplanes, someone else is holding out a hand to rake off the cream. It's a system which works (for Thailand). The fact that this is labelled as corrupt by some other (not all) nations/cultures in the world does not matter much unless it affects OS money coming into the country. Other counties generally have things like checks and balances to make sure money gets where it's supposed to go. Thailand doesn't need that complication, the system can't abide that anyway because of the possibility of people losing face. So stop pickin' on us! We'll go on our merry way. Let's face it, corruption works very well in all countries, but there's a different approach to it to cater for local conditions. Same result though - people get rich at the expense of others.

  6. Foreigner database to be ready in six months

    As a foreigner I don't hate the arrival card. After all I have to fill in the arrival card in my own country - Oz - it's the departure card in Thailand that I hate. Get very nervous about it every time I hand over my passport for whatever reason. I've not had the problem of not having it on exit so far, but not looking forward to the day that it disappears for whatever reason. Sent from my F3116 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  15. I think the law says that if you own shares for more than 5 years and then sell, there is no capital gains tax. Also I believe that the purchase price of shares is an income tax deduction in the year you bought them. Will stand correction. Anyone corroborate this?
