Thailand now the world's third most unequal country.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

The USA at 42% ranks an underachiever status. Give us 4-8 yrs. I think we can be an upward mobility country. :stir:

I was disappointed to see that we aren't no. 1 as well.

Surely Mr Trump will be able to rectify the situation!

Thailand now the third most unequal country among a selected group of nine countries

Am I the only person who finds these surveys totally ridiculous? A few days ago there was one saying Cambodia was the second most lawless country in the world, worse than Afghanistan etc. Now this nonsense. Go to most of Africa, for example, and check out the disparity between the haves and have-nots, it's far more extreme.

The headline is misleading anyway, it should be "Thailand now the third most unequal country among a selected group of nine countries".
