Here’s an interesting take from an opinion piece in Thailand:

… If Thailand decides to build nuclear power plants, it is not difficult to predict that attempts will be made to fill pockets and construction quality and safety standards may suffer. …

Which helps highlight the question of quality control standards around the world. Are they flexible if pockets are lined? This is a good question for sociologists and anthropologists to ponder for us. Views of the world, and what is acceptable behavior, vary between cultures in ways that are impossible for outsiders to understand. It’s best to keep that in mind.
