The Asian Financial Crisis 20 years on: part three

One man has cast a long shadow over Thailand since 1997. Where does the country stand now as it tries to re-engage its stalled democracy?

In any analysis of where Thailand has gone wrong over the past 20 years, it is hard to avoid mentioning one man Thaksin Shinawatra.

His very name is an anathema to most educated and urbanised Thai citizens and therefore the contributors to FinanceAsia’s three part series on the origins and aftermath of the Asian Financial Crisis.

These contributors are Korn Chatikavanij, former finance minister and leading Democrat party politician Montree Sornpaisarn, CEO of Maybank Kim Eng’s Thai arm Eric Ma, Morgan Stanley's long-standing Thai investment banking head and Stephen Taran, who runs Citi's sovereign rating advisory team in New York.
