You are correct again ! Applause Where I work we have
maybe 3 Lao guy that are specialist in our field including myself.The Vietnamese guy outnumber us 5 to 1. I have
a friend who work at a university as an academic advisor.
She hardly see any Lao young people seeking higher education.Maybe its not being push enough at home.But
you are so right about the Viet. She see tons of them.
The Chinese that are pretty rich in their country are
senting their kids to school over here too. I guess we have
nobody else to blame but ourselves.

Fair enough. But perhaps Lao people are not receiving as much education.

And before you dismiss my comments about western corporate culture out of hand, try experiencing it. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Laos is poor due to lack of access to the ocean, as you said.


No I'm not trying to dismiss what you're saying bout western culture. To certain extend I agree with ya.But
to me I think its a good thing.Case in point , I see a lot
of stuff coming out South Korea and Japan that has affect
on the younger generation. Why can't Laos absorb some
of the western way as well. Maybe it will lit a fire in them.
As for being a landlock country . If the government is thinking of future I think they can come up with all sort of
project and encourage foreign investment.But I know the
Laos government way to corrupt. They just lining their own
pocket. The reason why South Korea is doing so well was
through their investment in their youth. I think you are aware of their history.They were very poor after the war.Heck back in the 90 they were borrowing money from
the IMF.But all the Korean gave gold to repay their loan.
But their investment paying off too. Look at Samsung and
LG. I can go on and on. If I sound like I'm everywhere I
apologize. But I think we are on the same page.

I don't think Laos can do what Japan and South Korea did. Look at Thailand, a similar culture to Laos which received a lot of western influence. What have they produced? Japan and South Korea have innovative cultures, while Laos and Thailand do not.

I'm not denying that lack of access to the ocean plays a role in the poverty in Laos, but Lao people are also rather lazy, and I'm saying this from experience, being Lao myself. A lot of the men don't even work and just have their wives work while they lay at home drinking beer and watching TV. Many Thai men are the same way.

Man you hit this one out of the ball park . I totally agree
with you bout Laos men on being lazy. I have seen it with
my own eyes. When I use to go around pool hall and gambling hall.Majority of the older guys had their wives
out working while they out at pool hall and drinking coffee.
I could never understood why they would do that.Then
I see their children slack off in school and up to no good.
My bro had a kid when he finish high school he sent him
far away for college. He didn't want his only child being
influence by them.I mean the childrens of those loser.
Then they wonder why the Viets are doing so well.
Lazy is the key word here.

Lao people are among the laziest in the world. And if you bring it up, Lao people will get angry and blame their backward state on the US bombing campaign or Thai incursions. One reason why they are underdeveloped is because they are landlocked, just like Switzerland. Even when Lao people go to the US or other western countries they're poor and they talk shit about Chinese and Korean immigrants even though other Asian immigrants are far more successful and have far higher levels of wealth, prosperity, and education.

The Chinese are ultimately going to direct the future of Laos. To a lesser extent extent the Vietnamese. Lao people are going to become a minority group in their own country and they have nobody but themselves to blame for it. If your development strategy is selling off your assets and if the wealthiest people in the country are either glorified policemen or glorified prostitutes, you will never become great.

I hate being negative about Laos because the Lao people are also the most non-violent, approachable, and friendly people in the world. They also have the best posture of any group of people from my observations. But the cultural proclivity to lie, the lack of education or the desire for an education, the lack of a work ethic, and the feudal attitude are really holding back the Lao people.

It would be great if Laos was simply isolated from the rest of the world but in a global capitalist system intelligence and a work ethic are the only things that matter.

The government doesn't even build schools in the poorest areas because they don't want them to think too much or they might realize they're being taken advantage of and left out of the development process. Simple as that.

They haven't even thought into it that far. They just don't give a shit. Build a new school in the provinces or have enough money to wine and dine the mia noi for a year? Most will choose the second option.

The one that has money or access to money are into
material stuff. I find it very funny they drive very expensive
cars but the roads are crap, At least we all agree that the
government are out for themselves and their families.They
couldn't give a rats ass about the average Lao peoples.Its
just break my heart to see those crooks raping the country.

It sort of hurts to say, but I agree with everything TexasCowboy has to say about the Lao people. Laos could just be an extension to Yunnan, China someday. It's not very viable as an independent state. I guess if they made it isolated like Bhutan it would work, but it's already too late for that, plus it's unlikely given its strategic position as the gateway to Southeast Asia from China.

Bhutan is up there on a mountainous plateau, preventing easy access...Laos is smashed in between very popular destinations and a world superpower, but is still one of the world's poorest countries.

Bhutan has everything going for it. I really do love the fact that I am priced out of ever visiting the country because that means only a small number of wealthy tourists have access to the country. They also have a complete culture and have had a complete culture for centuries.

So it's hard to get a visa there I take it? I actually met some Bhutanese who were studying at an international school in Thailand. Biggest pair of retards I've ever met, but I won't judge from the small sample size.

Getting a visa isn't the issue but you have to have a travel itinerary and an officially sponsored guide. It costs $250 per day to travel in Bhutan. The price includes food and accomodation, travel arrangements, tourist guide, tickets, etc.

It is possible to teach in Bhutan if you have a master's degree in education.

Funny because some American liberals I know were condemning Bhutan for their anti-globalist policies, comparing them to the Nazis. Apparently they kicked out some Nepalese living in the country for "not being Bhutanese", and they had to come to the US as refugees. These liberals threw them a party and actually referred to these Nepalese as "Bhutanese refugees." When I pointed out that the Bhutanese are a Mongoloid people and don't look South Asian their jaws just kind of dropped and they remained silent and changed the subject. American liberals are the worst.

Liberals are the most ignorant type of person and what is infuriating about them is that they think consider themselves to be enlightened humanists. The average liberal isn't used to arguing with someone who is informed so it's usually easy to catch them off guard.

Anyways, Bhutan is a tiny country with a tiny population. It's unreasonable to expect them to welcome Nepalese farmers with open arms. I have nothing against Nepalese people either. Many of them are friendly. But what could the Bhutanese possibly stand to gain by letting them into Bhutan?

Liberals are definitely the most ignorant type of person, and most that I have met are very anti-nation state. They think "we are all humans" and everyone should be able to move across borders freely. Most are very pro-EU as well, and they think ASEAN is going to be like the EU. I met one from Poland who was celebrating ASEAN as he thought it would be the end of distinct Southeast Asian national identities, and he said he hates rural culture and thinks all humans should unite. Their ideologies disgust me.

Another thing I've heard from liberals is that they want to remove the chains of nationality and create a free, borderless world with universal liberal values where men and women can date whoever they want in the world and work wherever they want without any restrictions. Might as well call them globalists at this point because that's what they are, supports of the NWO.
