No 'Social Policy' is ever future proof.... no here, not there... not everywhere... since NO ONE can see the future. Policy for the 'future' is set only with the best of available information currently. The trick is to readjust the standing Policy every 3-5 years to suit any changes in situation in the future. :think:

I think more importantly.. he is saying that he sees signs of the policy failure to address current issues even now..
And unless it is addressed quickly, the future will not look good..

An interesting read - thanks for highlighting.

"Stop Wanting Stupid S---" - indeed. How rich you are depends on how content you are, not how big the number you have in the bank, or how powerful or expensive your car is.

I think he or the person writing the headline was trying to be polite. The message in the text itself is loud and clear. May be that's one reason why he left GIC.

No children = no future = no need to be future proof

i didn't read from top to bottom but i spotted this :

He disagrees: 'The original brand of the ***(filtered :D ), as I remember it, was pragmatically meeting the needs of the ordinary citizen and often exceeding expectations in doing so on a universal basis. And it did so from the 1950s to 1980s.

'Back then, their policies were revolutionary and ahead of time, because they anticipated and drove and mastered the future. I would love to see them recapture that original brand.'
