    in sg, due to the 'culture' its always profit maximization... u dun earn, others earn... u are out... nobody pity you... no long run or short run, just anyhow run...
    if you keep your prices constant while others raise theirs, you might end up earning even more

    it is the greed that ruins us all

    It is the same old grief, the same old song and heck, the poor dead horse has been whipped so many times over and still we have people who wont let it rest.

    You want a say? Express it in the right forum or platform. Coming in CS to (pardon the parlance) KPKB serves no purpose. Of course nothing is done. You want to make a change? Then do something concrete about it.

    I am sick of all of these armchair critics with their apathy and disguising their own inertia and blaming it on everything/one but themselves.

    This is literally a case of "Chwee Gong LP Song" (again, for lack of something that conveys the message as well as this phrase) whereby all one does is yak, yak and yak but when asked to stand up for his causes and his beliefs, all you see are empty seats and an obvious lack of response.

    As it is, i would like to repeat and remind one and all that this is a PHOTOGRAPHY forum.
    cos i couldn't have said it better

    The best is free stuff with no catch and no strings attached, then everyone will be happy.

    everything in life is a compromise

    the only thing that is free with no catch (unless you see it as a catch in itself) and definitely no strings attached is death. anyone can give it, and receive it.

    want to live elsewhere? want to compare? then be fair, see the other end of the stick too. me, i like the balance as to what we're getting so far. if it changes, then it's another story.

    I think comparing prices and comparing government policies are quite different.....so trying to lump them together may not give an ideal result.
