About This Book

The late Dr Puey Ungphakorn, dubbed the "Father of Thai Economics," was a remarkable person who contributed a great deal to Thailand. He was an honest and capable man who selflessly devoted himself to the interests of the country despite the many obstacles placed in his path. A member of the Free Thai Movement, Dr Puey spurned active politics, but inspired many Thais with his integrity and commitment to improving economic and education management. Dr Puey received his doctorate in economics from LSE in 1949, and among his official positions held were: Governor of the Thai Central Bank, and Rector of Thammasat University. In his last years, he lived the life of an exile in England. This collection of snipperts of his writings gives a glimpse into his wit and wisdom.
