    Banthoon: Money isn't everything

    Another gem from this place we call home.

    The head of one of the largest banks telling us:

    Banthoon: Money isn't everything
    Thai society must change its mentality and break away from the short-term focus on numbers and material wealth, according to Banthoon Lamsam, the chief executive officer of Kasikornbank.
    It's like telling the local yokels that stealing is bad, lying is unacceptable and bad driving is just not on.

    I really wonder how the king's 'sufficiency principle' would ever have a chance here.

    Sufficiency like democracy means different things to different people.
