ItemHow much is enough?: constraints of population, temperature rise, politics and economics: a concept paper(Assumption University Press, 2018-12) Barnes, John ; Jordan, FionaHow Much Is Enough? Can be thought of generally in terms of sustainability. This paper broadly adopts that approach but also mentions The Sufficiency Economy (SE) Thailand which is derived from Buddhist philosophy and which promotes the idea that we should open our mind and implement practices to the needs (not wants) of all people and that those needs be modest i.e. sufficient. Proponents of this sufficiency economy were EF Schumacher (1911- 1977) of the UK and King Bhumibol Adulyadejj (Rama 9 (reign from 05-05-1950 to 13-10- 2016) in Thailand. This concept paper considers major factors influencing the Sufficiency Economy worldwide (not only for Thailand) namely: population (whether it involves growth, stability or decline); changes to global climate; preferred political system/s; preferred economic system/s; preferred standard-of-living; employment opportunity.

Online marketing communications are moving towards connections between individual users and customers, rather than being delivered to millions of consumers through a marketing agency.

The data were analyzed by using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and Structural Equation Model (SEM) to confirm the goodness of fit of the model and hypotheses testing. The study analyzed that there isno significance of online relationship communication, online interactive communication, methods for prioritization of OMC for future potential of OMC. However online advertising, online public relations, mobile communication, prioritization of OMC have significant direct or indirect effect on future potential of OMC.

The study represents original findings to investigate and examine the influences on online marketing communication potential priorities for Chinese Gen X and Gen Y customers purchasing condominiums in Thailand, and thus adding in to a green field of lacking in theory as well as concrete instructions.
