Will the future be very bad or fabulous?

Can't say I care, my thoughts are I'll be dead soon.

I consider myself lucky, if I'd been born earlier I'd have hit WW2, if I'd been born later I'd have missed cheap international travel.

Bottom line is that you hit the sweet spot in more ways than one ... 🙂

 

Ultimately the future will be what we make of it .. for good or for bad ...

The way the world is going i fear the future looks quite bleak for the ordinary man ,as always the rich will be able to manage  by just sealing themselves off from us , but for us it does not look all that good ,the idiots seem to be taking over the asylum.

I've got my future back. It's not as easy as I thought, but overall it's the kind of life that I wanted and worked for.

Actually Westerners are statistically low spenders...

Furthermore looking at tourist's origination as per August 2019 stats, 4.81 percent were Europeans, 0.68 percent Americans, and 0.30 percent from down under, i.e. AUS and NZ. Russians were 2.90 percent.

 

Westerner's "with real money to spend" are statistically not that important.

 

Majority was China with 57.80 percent, AEC with 9.73, and remaining Asia with 15.49 percent.

 

High end villa buyers, and renters, are not specific Westerners, and it's also a different market than mass tourism and "all inclusive tours".

That graph is "by region" not by country.  Maybe the big money is going to Vietnam.  🙂

 

I know this place turns dollar for Vietnam.

However, "westerners" can be easily traced per region, and all of them in the low end. I furthermore specified little deeper stats about numbers of tourists in the text; i.e. 4.81 percent Europeans that are the lowest spenders, whilst the 7.80 percent Chinese are the highest spenders, in average 50 percent more per day than Europeans. My point is that European tourists are relative not that important anymore in to total view...😉

And the Chinese like to gamble.  Right?  Does Thailand have casinos?  No.   

 

Wake up an smell the casino chips.

Just based on today's experience, I'd say things are going to get very ugly soon... Today, I've had 2 people, one Filipina and one Caucasian ask me for money AND a Thai guy, fxxxed out of his head, try to take my drink and botlle from my table in an open air restaurant. 

The young are oblivious to all of this, with their heads stuck in the phones mommy and daddy paid for, but to see adults having to bed for money and try to steal drinks from tables, that's when you know things are getting tough. 

Where is this going to end?

This is going to end in a warlike generation conflict in the West. 

Not in Thailand due to their strong family ties.

In a revolution or civil war.
