A monopoly/duopoly built by artificial barriers to stop competitors from entering your market, isn't exactly durable. Well, at least it is durable until one day, it isn't.

Row over beer sparks political debate in Thailand

Estimates show that at least 92 per cent of the country’s beer market that year was controlled by just two companies: Boon Rawd Brewery and Thai Beverage (ThaiBev). It is a similar picture in the spirits market, with ThaiBev dominating the majority of domestic sales.

Paetongtarn Shinawatra, a leader in Thailand’s largest opposition party, Pheu Thai, wrote on Twitter that the government’s new laws continue to block small producers and the “potential of the Thai people”. Posting images of her father, former premier Thaksin Shinawatra – who remains popular among poorer Thais – she said her party would liberalise rules further if elected into power.
