Yes, we are all silly, could only wish we're half as smart as you are. Although he's driving a brand new toyota, it does not mean he earned it
from gold mining, and I never said he earned it from gold mining, did I?
You base your argument solely on assumption, wealth on paper. This is
exactly is how it all started. There were smart people like you back then, waving spreadsheet, convincing the big issara on how much laos will make money from this. So they jumped on it. Sure they make some, but it's way below their expection. Supposedly they would reach the
sky, but in reality they only reach the tip of the banana tree ! In business term, they don't make a crap. This is through their own admission. So nobody is lying here. It's only you that's lying to yourself. Maybe, with your expertise in imaginary wealth, you should
give free consultation on how they can maximize their tax collection eh!
The truth is, the money isn't there. Teachers still owed 3 months back
pay. Hospital is still in short supply of medicines and staffs. Many
civil servants still struggle with their livings. That's why corruption
is rampant. When people struggle, corruption become necessity. So look around with open mind and fact, not imagination. Put down your spreadsheet for a while and go on field survey, then you will see the truth. I'm not a business man or tax expert to argue with you. I know
if I'm reach or not is by really having money in my pocket/bank, not
on paper. I know if I have a good salesmen is by having them bring the
money (I mean real money I can spend) to my company, not the kind that
brag about how much I could've earned by waving sales report, projected
sale figures etc. In business term, "show me the money". Those who bragged, when caught up with reality, they
usually got fired, and I'm seen a lot.
The gold did not help laos the way they expected. That's what I was saying.
