    Which means they have to spend their money in singapore for straight 6 years.
    If they find Singapore is a good place, they stay here for good.

    As for no. of sg students going overseas to study is still lesser than foreign students coming here. The percentage is too insignificant if you compare the no. of foreign students coming in.

    Most sg students went overseas study are usually for degree or masters.
    but
    you compare the number of foreign students coming over to Singapore....it starts all the way from primary to uni.

    IMHO, in the long run, we are still 'profitable' from milking these foreign students.


    I am very sorry, have to wake you up from your dream. There is no milk, in reality, you are the milk provider.

    You are providing a service at a price well below the costs. Check the Republic Poly’s website, and you will know how much milk you give to these overseas students.
    These foreign students also enjoy concession rates. How much money can you make out of their daily expanses?
    How many bowls of Mee Pok you have to sell to them in order to break even?

    “As for no. of sg students going overseas to study is still lesser than foreign students coming here. The percentage is too insignificant if you compare the no. of foreign students coming in.”

    The percentage is too insignificant? Let me make it significant for you.

    Total no of students enrolled in NUS, NTU and SMU is 12,800 in yr 2006.
    20% = 2560 foreign students.

    No of Sg Students in Australia doing Higher Education (Note: Australia alone only hor!):
    Yr 1998: 16,509
    Yr 1999: 19,207
    Yr 2000: 20,866

    Do you still find these figures insignificant?
    You are not only giving milk to Foreign students in Singapore, you are also giving milk to Australia; UK and US.
    Do you know how many SG students did not come back after their studies?

    I can imagine all your conspiracy theories already!

    Here, let me help you out. The KGB has revived and is trying to use Singapore as a stepping stone towards winning the Cold War that they will start again pretty soon enough. And all our students going overseas are actually being brainwashed and trained as operatives. So it's best to keep it all hush-hush!

    Hey! We need a roll-eyes emoticon here! [IMG]

    What was it that someone called it? Enough of cockadoodle talk!

    Hi,Good to see you around.

    I have a nose for conspiracy theorists.
    When the stink gets too solid, it's up to OBVIOUSMAN to save the day!

    And OBVIOUSMAN says, you have NOTHING to back any of your claims up!

    Hahaha.... as usual, one thing leads to another.

    Not much happening here, just tolking about some economics theories. But some see it as a political agenda.

    Puh-leese, these are not economics theories. These are still laymen theories, there is ZERO economics in what you have discussed, other than the fact that you might be talking about the economy. This sickens me, this weak masquerade and facade that you're putting up to possibly add some glory to your life.

    Till now it's just spouting of statistics and figures, which would be as far as it goes, layman's economics. Even Stephen Levitt's book for the layman has more economic theories (and even then some would call it sociology more than anything else) within it than in this thread in the first 2 pages.

    To achieve this vision, I think it is good to import some competition and FT to replace the unwilling lots.

    A few good fishing ponds:

    Switzerland:
    Population: 7.5 million
    GDP Per Capital: $50,532
    Economy: Swiss Chocolate

    Denmark:
    Population: 5.4 million
    GDP Per Capital: $47,984
    Economy: Danish Cookies

    Ireland
    Population: 4.2 million
    GDP Per Capital: $50,150
    Economy: Irish Beer.

    Please note: All the above mentioned have high standard of living and good welfare.
    You are free to make a choice. After that your choice controls you.
    So? What economy Danish cookies? What does this have to do with outsourcing of top jobs? As a TS, you are obviously not doing a very good job of keeping to topic or explaining what the heck you want to discuss!

    This is called the CRUSH-ARGUMENT-WITH-QUANTITY maneuver. Watch and learn!
