    USA citizens denounce him as doing it to evade US tax, timing it before Facebook IPO reaps billions.

    Jim Rogers also decided to stay in Singapore.

    USA is sending a new warship to Singapore in 2013, to protect all this money. The SPGs will lose out to the CPGs.

    Look at Apple. They've dodged about $20B in taxes so far.

    well, it is a good place to live and work, and is pretty safe as well.

    compared to other nations in the region, though cheaper, are not as safe.

    i guess the only thing he has to beware of are the SPGs fighting tooth and nail for him. best not to get caught in their crossfire

    The leap in logic here is amazing.

    It's like we're talking about Super Mario and suddenly you bring in your morning business and say that you like to jump around like Super Mario on the toilet bowl.
