"Profit is the realm of business, while unprofitable but socially useful tasks is the responsibility of government."
Some food for thoughts....
(1) Do you think the recent spotlight on private childcare being reported to be insufficient, inadequately managed and a few cases of abuses are timed so that the policy makers then can step in to open more childcares. Is the social responsibility of government one that should also recognize an opportunity to set guidelines and lead by example by being more involved in the business?
(2) What do you think of "Not-for-profit" hawker centers management? Do you think a government linked business can run on a not-for-profit business model that can have a socially beneficial task of controlling rents and prices.

In any case, a camera forum is hardly the place to ask such questions. If you can own a system camera, you are already above 50% of the income average.

you are so right....quoting an angry singaporean...
Singapore is a relative safe place to stay. This point I don't think anyone of us can denial. As for 1st world living standard, I don't think we are anywhere near yet. Most citizens are definitely not living in 1st world standard except for the top 10 %.
In 50 years, we have achieved much but we also squeeze a lot out from the people. Many did not enjoy the fruits but hope their generations to come will. We all hope more can be done for the people and the wealth better spread.
I would expect basic like health care, education, transportation, work life balance, etc to achieve those you see in Germany for example for citizens.
We are not that far in certain area but definitely have plenty of rooms for improvements. For example, waiting time for doctor in hospital with appointment can be more than 2-3 hours late.
Not again ... CNY coming relax a bit lar.
So any BIG news coming on CNY eve?
