    As to your second point, no I am not expecting you to do a comprehensive survey. We have limited resources and limited access to data. What bugs me is that why is it people from other countries can retire comfortably at a 'decent' age but not here in Singapore? Unless of course you are very rich. It cant be because the cost of living is lower because I would assume that their salaries are lower and therefore their savings would be lower and there would be less in the bank once they retire.
    my sentiment is the same as yours in para 2. happy new year to you.

    Could you quote statistics on how people from other countries can retire comfortably at a decent age? I think some statistics reveal singaporeans have one of the highest purchasing power in the world. I believe in some welfare states, the people can afford to live comfortably without working, but that puts a strain on the rich. I for one wouldn't want to live in a place where more than half of what i earn is being taxed away. At least i want to choose who i donate my money to.
