Abstract:

After implementation of the National Economic and Social Development Plan 1961-1966, Thailand experienced increasing high rates of economic growth. However by mid 1997, Thailands economy was slipping into the so-called Thailand financial crisis falling property prices, slowing exports, rising trade deficits, and the devaluation of the Thai baht. This raises concern about the future. The purpose of this thesis is to examine Thai economic policies leading up to current crisis. Using hypothesis of Williamson and Haggard, the countrys economic reforms will be evaluated. From these finding, several conclusions will be drawn concerning the countrys economic future.
