Farang husbands providing massive boost to Isaan economy

Recommended Posts

Only 9,000 a month average? There are some tight @rses out there. I must be pushing that average way up.

And for the record I'm not complaining one little bit. My Isaan lady and her family (all of them) are the best people I have known. Hard working and honest. Perhaps I just got lucky but these are the best days of my life.

The study also found that on average, the wife and foreign husband will normally return to the wifes family home in the region at least once a year, sometimes staying for as long as one month, which results in a dramatic increase in financial spending in the local area.

especially into the local mum and pop stores...

Yes, likely buying all the beer for the extended family and friends that come hanging around.

Perhaps for their next study they should theorize the concept of farangs actually working in Thailand in meaningful jobs and buying land, houses 100% in their name just like Thais do in civilized societies.

Looks like Farang provide in Issan and many other places in Thailand and we don't force people to crawl on their hands and knees, instead stand up, treat us well and be genuine is all we ask. Who do they love now? Long live Farang.

Nothing new to me.

Keep saying that for a long time and I got some nasty responses from some members.

Eat your words out now.........dearest wise members.

Those that already knew, suspected or even deny what the report alleges are free to follow their convictions.

Stating "I told you so", "dearest wise members" or "eat your words" does little to change the minds of those who may have a limited, different or slanted view of the topic.

I try to avoid self-promotion of being "right", since more often than not, I am wrong on all counts. In the end, my little squeaks only provide the smallest of noises in a large and often chaotic world.

I agree. When I read such posts, that on one hand are quite Pak Wan, and then qualify the compliment with a barrage of insults and poor language, I go on to the next post.

The photo seems to suggest that a lot of the 9,600baht must go on whitening products.

The real scandal in all this is the fact that the recipients use this foreign windfall to qualify for businesses and homes from the banks. They soon fall short in payments, and that is where the shrewed (oftentimes Chinese) moneylenders offer a bailout. Now the foolish businessman/homeowner lets the moneylender "hold title". In effect, some payments are made on the outlandish interests (principal never/ever gets addressed). In time, the moneylender acquires the property, by default. Basically, the moneylender acquired the property at a fraction of the value...minus the payments they did manage to receive.

The crafty vs. the weak and unschooled.

There goes your country...Thailand...say goodbye to the farm

8.67B Baht, 747,094 jobs is 11604 Baht per job. Not a lot of money. It's only a retainer.... or a good supplement if it's not your primary income.



19000 couples, 747000+ jobs means each couple have helped in the creation 39 jobs.



39 jobs at 11604 per job created is...... 452593 Baht contributed by each couple.



Maybe the job creation figures are manipulated.



Sure paints a rosy picture of the "farang in laws". We sure are jai dee.



Can't see it making any difference to their attitude towards us on an administritave level.

There is no mention of the approximate 100,000 Farangs who live all year round in Isaan , whose minimum input to the region must be about BT400,000,000 per month .

Farangs living in rural villages renovate their wife's home or build new houses , that gives a boost to the building industry , builders merchants , as well as ideas for neighbouring Thais to improve their homes . Farangs are able to spend more money at the local shops and markets . Farangs often pay for their wife's children to go to better schools and to college or university . Farangs buy cars , then all their Thai neighbours do too . Unfortunately we have the impression that Bangkok government doesn't like Farangs encouraging rural Thais to better themselves , perhaps robbing Bangkok or Rayong factories of an abundance of cheap labour . Farangs substantial input to the Thai economy is not recognised or appreciated by central government .
