    in2015 I'll be looking after my young kids and probably worrying if they can get into a good primary school soon. So I'll say it's a social impact for me

    will change to economy policy when they actually get into school before that it's still social.

    it's called IT (infrastructure) policy

    Social and economics are those that benefit from such policy.

    Are you suggesting that neither is benefiting from such policy?

    The big question is, who can predict what is going to be like 10 years later? We know that technology jumps and bounces so fast.
    - 10 years ago I was using modem dialup at 56k
    - 20 years ago I was using telephone line for voice only
    - 30 years ago I didnt even have a telephone in my home.

    Exactly... let me give you another example... building of MRT/Roads/Expressways..etc is under what kind of policy? They are all infrastructure.

    All these are investment in infrastructure... the returns are not guaranteed. For the case of MRT, the outcome was unexpected where most stations became nodal points for economic bloom.

    Social policies are policies like racial harmony, stop at 2 or have 3 or more if you can afford...etc

    Economic policies are more like those making Sg a favorable investment location, a financial hub..etc

    They are interrelated and can benefit from each other but they are not the same.
