It is a strange coincidence, however, Inside Thai Government blog, reports that Yingluck’s Facebook fan page hit 1 million like on 22 October 2013, Thaksin Facebook like hit 1 million likes on 1 September 2013, and Thaksin’s son, Oak, Facebook hit 1 million like on 10 October , 2013. What is more interesting, is that The Shinawatra supporter base, are mostly, grassroots and lower middle income, that has fewer access to the internet than the upper class, that has great access to the internet. It is also odd for Yingluck and Thaksin to gain 1 million Facebook likes, because both are not very active on social network, with only Oak, that is a regular user of Facebook. For the 1 million like, Yingluck posted to thanks to her fans. (Source)

One thought on “Strange Coincidence? Yingluck, Thaksin and Oak, hit 1 million Facebook “Like” at about the same time

  1. Hmm,.. I see that the page that i had liked in behalf of Yingluck turns out to be the authentic one with 1 Million+ likes.

    Though distantly relating, i was aware of a concept that an economy cannot gobble up the cost of subsidy unless it succeeds necessary growth rate that can help government source in increased Public revenue in order to avoid widening of the budget deficit. Lately, the case is related to India (the biggest economy of South-Asia) that is renown for its subsidized economy aimed at the welfare of the poor. The Indian government of Indian National Congress (INC) more like the Thai government provides subsidy in the agriculture sector with subsidies on fertilizers and other sectors since most poor Indian class rely on agricultural income for living. However, the below expectation growth status of Indian economy has made it hard for the government to gobble up the usual subsidy volume as the country takes in more budget deficit.

    So quite in relation, do you think the Thai economy is strong enough to gobble up the current subsidy volume. And if not, how do you think the potential 3 times multiplier effect can occur in order for the Thai economy to offset the growing budget deficit. All in all, my question is how do you think the multiplier effect can occur out of subsidy?

    Have a great weekend 🙂
