I have an analogy for Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong wanting to sack the country's central bank governor because he hadn't made the suggested moves to halt the rise of the baht, as reported in yesterday's Post. Imagine two military officers fighting alongside each other for the country. Suddenly, the captain wants to get rid of the lieutenant because he wants the weapons in his possession and add them to his own arsenal, so that he alone can continue to fight the war. That doesn't sound like a recipe for victory to me.
SWITCHING HORSES?: Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong has admitted to mulling over the dismissal of Bank of Thailand Governor Prasarn Trairatvorakul.
