Money over society

Dear Editor,

Soth Plai Ngarn's letter, "Money Over Society" is just more socialist nonsense

from one of the usual suspects, a British academic.

Yes, it's too bad the market rate for unskilled labor in Cambodia is so low, but

if the Government uses its power of the gun to enforce higher wages, these jobs will

simply move to Indonesia. A low-paying job is better than none at all.

In time, with the rule of law and laissez-faire capitalism, Cambodians will enjoy

higher wages.

How does the not-real-world British academic feel that Hong-Kongers with their capitalism

enjoy a higher standard of living than British workers?
