    The table is misleading because at least one leader donates a large part of his salary to charities.

    The table is misleading because at least one of the leaders has skin as thick as an elephant.

    Not always you look at what was official. Those you don't know far exceed that. Best is always to declare what they have before they start.

    Through salary want to be billionaire need lots of other means.

    You're right. Singapore's pay for government is more transparent than most other countries. Otherwise why so many rich people want to be prime ministers or presidents in their countries? Must have opportunities for more riches when you have power. In SG, if you try to favour cronies with contracts, see what will happen. These kind of things cannot hide forever.

    US presidents rake in the dole after they step down. Here's an example:

    BTW, you need to be a multi millionaire first before you could even consider being elected in USA.

    (change the word USA -> Singapore)


    I think this is a deliberate typo for the purpose of distraction.

    It`s known to all as the "family business" in Singapore
    "works" for many decades!

    The S 1.7 are what is communicated to the people,
    it is only the tip of the iceberg,
    everybody knows.

    A person like Obama or Merkel could never president be in Singapore.
    (or be elected president)
