quoting from the article ...

"I think Singapore has reached a point where it has a lot of economic success and now it has some surplus, and it's time to start thinking about the more human element," said Dr Chan.

:think:

when stress level is high, it's not possible to spare the braincells to plan the future. pleasure becomes a necessity to relieve the pressure so that it doesn't build up. if one doesn't feel secured about the future, one only has the present. :angel:

That is why we have a quick fix.
Look at our population magical figures.
Keep increasing and not decreasing.

Your worries are unfounded.

纸上谈兵

don't worry, in the ideal situation every thing will go our way. In the elite ideal world, they work 40hrs/week and have big fat bonuses every year. when they work OT, they will be praised and awarded BEST employees and published in newspaper for going the 'extra mile'.

Ok, now to look out for anonymous user's posts that refutes my statements. :bsmilie:

sg is a complex system. As with any complex system there is a Real part and an Imaginary part.. in sg it is abs(Re + Im) = 4million. Im part will keep increasing such that population numbers keep rising

Make it four day work week might help. Maximum one week work 35 hours. No stress = people make more love. :bsmilie:

4 things they can give to boost birthrate !

1) cheaper housing for newly weds.
2) cheaper medical cost for childbirth.
3) cheaper education for primary and secondary school.
4) cheaper foodstuff like milk powder, rice and sugar for families with newborn babies.

scrap tat baby bonus.. becos frankly speaking 10k in cash is not enough to bring a kid from baby to primary 1..

Yep, I always trust the government.
Afterall, they are run by elite of the elites.

Looking at how we spend millions or billions on A*STAR biomedical is a good example.
I'm just wondered how come the daughter of our Master Elite is questioning how A*STAR is performing and its roles.

How come she don't have faith in our elite system?

Very StrangLee huh?!

;) :cool: ;)

Hmmm...

Funny that the army complains too many pple, and reduced the NS from 2.5yrs to 2 yrs.

And if i'm not wrong, FTs dun do NS.

When it reaches a certain point, Singapore citizens can finally be on the endangered spicies list.
