I believe industries and SMEs will accelerate production to meet this surge in purchasing power.

 

what drug is he on?

i want some...

Let's say product A can be bought with this money, and people love product A, i.e. mobile phones, then I wouldn't be surprised if there are lots of special promotions for those shiny new wonderful things to buy.

I still wait to read any good explanation how spending this huge amount of money will benefit Thais and Thailand.

We have seen almost a decade under PM Prayut handing out his "gifts" to the public and here the nation is today - worse off. Now PM Thavisin repeats history and wonders why BoT doesn't trust him.

1. I still wait to read any good explanation how spending this huge amount of money will benefit Thais and Thailand.

2. I am sure Thaksin and his buddies wouldn't have come up with something like this without making sure there will be huge opportunities for his cronies to make a lot of money. The government should publish the details so that it is transparent what they want to do. And independent people, maybe even international, should scrutinize this.

This is just too much money to play around with because the PM and his boss want it.

And did you not see those gifts when Thaksin was in charge?

If Thaksin wouldn't have been so corrupt, then Prayut would never have been in politics.

This is what this PM and his Party, boss Thaksin like to do. 

Give handouts socialist programs to get votes, medical, min wages, all needed in cases. Higher wages for those coming out of higher education 25,000 to start yet all the good paying jobs are given based on nepotism especially government.

yingluck vote for me your kid will get a tablet my son is still waiting he's 25 LOL.

Covid, did people get anything NO!

those who needed it the most got nothing.

But of course nothing a foreign say will matter go ahead make my day when the economy tanks baht is worthless 70 to 1, I come out regardless. LOL

In a recent Bloomberg interview, Governor Sethaput criticised the broad economic stimulus as unnecessary and excessive. He suggested that the government should limit the handout to the 15 million citizens holding welfare cards, favouring a more targeted approach to aid those in genuine need.

No moving the goal posts after the pre-election promise was made to reward voters with a cash handout... not saying the 50 million population is correct, but that was the promise, now they have to honour it.

The money is a one time handout and will not help the economy but will a heavy burden on the country for several years... There would be a much better plan to handout to real needed some money, but therefor they have to know who is living where and doing what and earn how much as I wrote several times already. Then they could raise the daily wages from 350 THB to 500 THB or 600THB, which would do much more good to the economy than a one time payment. People would get more money to live with. But again the Government has no clue who is living where doing what and earn how much.

How would that work, companies /factories would not like paying more ,as has been said when the minimum wages increase is announced, and how would the government pay the increase ,factory workers on the books ,can be paid ,open to corruption, but a high percentage of the workers that need the money work in agriculture /building trade  ect.no paper work, here today gone tomorrow, no records.

Just would not work. the only way would be, as has been said, use the registered welfare card, that has been going for a few years now and it works

It is paid for by the people eventually, nothing is free.

It would work if there is a good registration system instead of the blue book... Everybody should  register on the address they live, and everybody should fill in a tax form with what their job is, where they work and how much they earn.. and than indeed on the welfare card there could be money to pay the rest the company won't pay... But now it is a mess as nobody knows where someone lives, what work and how much they earn. How can you help people?.

I don't know either,  but if it's produced locally and can be bought using the digital wallet then that should help the economy.  😀
