I know very little about economics, and don't pretend to know what I don't know. What is the basis for the "strength" of the Baht currently?

Strong Demand for Baht, and weak demand for other currencies.  Want to hold some Ringgit or Pounds?

I would agree with most of what you said, but I don't think the average tourist gives a rat's ass about the political situation here, and whereas they don't like getting what they feel as "being ripped off" that's not attributable to corruption within the government itself.

Some care, but doubt that is large percentage. I had a visa to go to Myanmar back in 97, but didn't go because Aung San said don't support corrupt military. Now I won't go because she is in (partial) power.

Rip offs + lack of safety = fewer tourists. "I'm dying to go to Thailand".... wait til you get there
