Past, Present, and Prospects for Thailand’s Growth: A Labor Market Perspective
Using growth accounting and econometric estimation methodologies, we investigate Thailand’s growth developments from 1972 to 2007 and project forward Thailand’s supply-side long-term potential growth till 2035. Our analysis is framed in terms of labor productivity and labor market developments. In this respect, the macroeconomic impact of Thailand’s ageing population is also highlighted. Our findings suggest that priority should be given to the resuscitation of capital accumulation or Thailand will fall to a permanent lower growth path.
