Employment statistics in Thailand are meaningless and cannot be compared, for example:

- if someone loses his job and has to go stay in his parent's farm because he cannot afford any other solution, he will be counted as farm worker,

- if he has no familly and is so desperate that he has to sell chewing gums in the street, he will be counted as self employed.

 

Nothing to do with less miserable.

Based on inflation and unemployment rates and data provided by Thailand...enough said about the validity of that.

Taking a look at the other countries at the top and using common sense, logic and reality... is Thailand even remotely within the same league?

Hmmm....this is according to Bloomberg.  But whatever.  I doubt they included miserable farangs in their calculations, so many here may tend to disagree. 

Yes, with 38 million on O-A visa, falangs should definitely be asked...

The editors of Bloomberg seem to be the first victims of the legal purchase of ganja.

If Venezuela grossly under-reported its unemployment rate while at the same time over-valuing its national currency to prevent it from being affected by dwindling export figures, the country might be able to climb quite a few places.

Should read FALSE SMILES

 

A jekyll and hide nation. Smile at a face but the knife goes in the back!

 

 Those who compile such dribble reports have obviously never lived in Thailand...

 

Thais are generally miserable and unhappy.

 

Only when money is in.their hands do they smile.

 

The land of frowns.

Sad you two feel it is the press. The terrible things happening there is the fault of those in the news. Don't hide from reality by using an escape goat like the press please.

I guess Bloomberg dont look at GDP growth, road deaths, income increases, cost of living, average household debt or pollution levels.  <deleted> do they base their index on... oh yea - employment.  10 people standing vacantly around each mall stall.

99% own just a third of the wealth, it must be the 1% with the two thirds who are least miserable!

So is this:

Thailand again claimed the title of the “least miserable” economy, though the government’s unique way of tallying unemployment makes it less noteworthy than Switzerland’s improvement to second-least and Singapore managing to stay in the bottom three. 

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-17/the-world-s-most-miserable-economy-has-seven-figure-inflation

 

"Unique" as in full of shit. Thais need to cut the crap if they ever want anybody to take them even a least bit seriously.
