"BANGKOK — Thailand, once a poster child for democracy and freedom in turbulent Southeast Asia, has careened over the past two years from one image disaster to the next.

First a military coup. Then revelations of slaves in the seafood industry and other human trafficking horrors. In August, a deadly bomb struck central Bangkok.

Not sure if its relevant but United Airlines/Delta Airlines/American Airlines and US Airways have some of the worst records in the world for aircraft accidents and fatalities.

And the U.S are the last nation who should be preaching to anyone else about how to run the economy:)
The terms sub-prime mortgage/collateralised debt obligations and credit defaults swaps come to mind!!
