Prominent economist suggested Thailand to avoid joining TPP

Nobel laureate in economics, Joseph Stiglitz suggested that Thailand avoids the mistakes of western countries. He also suggested that Thailand had better not join the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (TPP), as invited by the US President.  The forum was being lobbied behind the door by big US pharmaceutical industries and Thais would have to pay expensively for new drugs patented by the industry despite the basic researches were paid for by the public and American taxpayers.
