The article focuses on the credibility crisis of the Bank of Thailand (BoT). BoT decided to implement stiff capital limits on inward equity investment. With the introduction of ineffective investment controls in November 2006, BoT reforms should warrant caution given the impact of currency volatility in Thailand. The crisis faced by BoT can lead to a range of creative central bank policy measures and improved volatility in 2007.
