    Cos they're based on the "best" and "ideal" scenarios. They don't work in Pte Ltds like us y'know.

    Which part of it do you not understand? If the numbers look unrealistic to you, maybe your interpretation of what they mean could be off.

    if 'they' really base on an average monthly pay of $3k for a singaporean and decided on those increases in fares and prices........bus, petrol....etc......that is a very sad case.
    BTW diesel price just went up by 6cents this morning.

    The "average income" is very different from the "typical income".

    If 90% of the population have no income at all, but 10% earn $10000 each, the average income is still $1000, which obviously doesn't reflect the income of a "typical" person. The median income would be a better measure for this purpose.

    The problem may not be the numbers, but how they are interpreted.
