Bounding the Mekong

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter analyzes the interests and actions of various Thai participants in Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) development dating back to the 1980s. The actors involved are numerous and varied in their capacities, and the engagement of these various actors shows that GMS development is by no means the simple result of powerful transnational capitalists expanding the geographic range of their operations. Yet the sociospatial results of GMS development to date indicate that however willingly and aggressively smaller capitalists and traders participate in regionalization, it is in fact the most powerful and geographically mobile capitalists—including some who are Thai—that set the terms of integration while reaping disproportionate benefit.

Keywords:   Thai capitalists, GMS actors, regionalization, capitalists, GMS integration, transnational capitalists, GMS development
