Jack Ma vs Thaksin

From Manager, April 23, 2018
Top, Jack Ma: I took 1 minute to sell eighty thousand Thai durians.
Bottom, Thaksin: Very simple, I took only few seconds to sign and sell half of this country.
Caption: Same face, but capability is still far different.

[Refers to Chinese businessman and owner of Allibaba Jack Ma who recently visited Thailand with a plan to invest in e-commerce. He creates the “Alibaba effect” which was demonstrated when 80,000 Thai durians were sold in one minute.
This cartoonist contrasts this with Thaksin, accusing him of selling off state assets to foreigners during his administration.
Thais think Jack Ma looks like Thaksin and the cartoonist plays on this with the similar drawings of their faces.]
