There was a coup in Thailand. I am jealous. Very jealous. When was the last time we had a coup in the Arab world? Wait. We had one in Mauritania and it was pretty lousy. Never mind. Just day dreaming.”

IMF Statement on the Thai coup;

"We are following the situation closely. Thailand's economy is fundamentally strong and financial market reactions have been limited. Regional financial markets have also been little affected thus far.

"On the whole, Asian economies are resilient to external shocks, having strengthened their macroeconomic frameworks, increased exchange rate flexibility, and reduced external vulnerabilities in recent years."
