BANGKOK: -- Thailand ranked sixth among the world’s nine “best up-and-coming economies” in a survey conducted by US New & World Report, a publication known for its annual rating of US universities.

 

The China Daily reported on Wednesday that the US media organisation surveyed more than 21,000 people about how they viewed 80 countries in terms of criteria including economic influence, citizenship and quality of life.

 

To determine which countries were improving most quickly, the surveyors used a computer model to predict their future growth in gross domestic product and purchasing-power parity per capita.

 

The resulting upper ranks were dominated by Asian and Middle Eastern nations.

 

The top nine, in descending order, are the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, India, China, Japan, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Egypt.

Someone needs to brush up on the meaning of "up and coming" At least in the case of Japan

it was a Chinese newspaper that was reporting on a US publication of a US university survey. I am surprised that the uni students even knew where the 80 countries were, let alone the economic influence, citizenship and quality of life of those countries.

Looking at that list, is there a single ONE of them that looks to be a good investment right now? Looks more like a " be cautious" at best, steer clear for now grouping.

What a useless news item from another "think tank" organisation that nobodys ever heard of.

 

Surveyed 21,000 people ..... where ? Do you suppose any of them have ever visited Thailand ?

 

I like Thailand, but it's really stretching the imagination that it could be the 6th most "up & coming" economy in the world !!

 

Up & cumming describes Pattaya very nicely though.

"it was a Chinese newspaper that was reporting on a US publication of a US university survey."

 

I take it you didn't understand what they actually said?

Yeah, I agree.  My fellow Americans can be denser that a pallet of hammers.  But!  I'm sure I could go on to the streets a major city in the UK and make a video showing that Brits are equally clueless.  Actually, if you want to see the master of this type of man-on-the-street impromptu interviews with 'stupid people' then check out videos by Mark Dice.  With that said, I could answer every question posed by the interviewer and if I had the chance, I would have fired back questions that would have left him bumbling.  Clueless people are clueless.  Informed people are informed.  It has zero/zip/nada to do with where your home country is located.
