Not everyone need to crowd with the 10 million. If you got $, you still can live in big house, drive big cars, eat in hotels, etc.

Ask those squeezing in buses, crowded hawker centers, etc. do they enjoy the current 5 million?

Those high and mighty will never understand why these people are complaining. They are living in different world.

I second you on that. Some of them do indeed wonder why Singaporeans are complaining so much.

We are all living in the same and equal society where everyone can aspire and achieve such high life. :)

It's a misconception.

10% of Singaporeans are the noisy complainers.

90% of Singaporeans are the happy, appreciative, quiet and well-to-do lot.

It's time the happy majority voice their satisfaction loudly and emphatically. :bsmilie:

You complain... it's your business. They only care about the ringing of their cash registers.....

Correct me if i'm wrong, but that report was from April last year.

Last year we were still making all the mistakes: indiscriminate FT policies, white paper, asset enhancement policies, etc.
This year we are all paying for it: low productivity, gutted competitiveness, the dual pains from cooling measures and elevated property prices, high debt-gdp ratios, danger of credit meltdown, danger of property crash, etc... :bsmilie::bsmilie:

And worst part, this FT issue, productivity + competitiveness, property prices is all linked. And we're now in a major fix.

If we bring in more FTs, we screw productivity and competitiveness over long term, but boost property market to create a bubble.
If we restrict FTs, the SMEs will kpkb and die, property market will be down in the dumps.

Ho ho ho :bsmilie::bsmilie:

Mr Liu said that during the 2014 DBS Asia Insight Conference held last Friday 4 July 2014 at Marina Bay Sands. The photo is a report in Zaobao on Saturday 5 July 2014. Didn't seem to have been picked up by the English press.

Thanks for the correction. Yes I now see something about 2014 in the article.

That might be because Zaobao ran out of news to report. :bsmilie:

Senility already set in .......
Or dementia?

Have all of you ever wondered those who concurred of having 6.9, 8 or 10 million people in Singapore are either passed 60 years or so called expert who never stay one place for long like this chap here?
http://newnation.sg/2013/12/singapore-can-never-run-out-of-space-expert/

Can you trust these fellows to be around when we reach those marks?

When they used London, Tokyo, New York or even Bombay or Beijing and any bustling cities for comparison, they always conveniently forgotten not the space not restricted to those areas. Their citizens can choose to move out of the those cities to relax, stay or even work in other parts of their countries.

Where can we move? Sentosa? Forget it! It is reserved for the elitist. Pulau Ubin? Kusu Island? Sisters Island? or St John Island?

*** said our population is down, yet new virgin grounds in Pasir Ris or North Yishun with trees chopped down to build new schools? (hey! Minister of Education, what about the old school buildings) and what else? Flats! Condo!

*** projected too many old folks in the future. Not only allow the FT to become PRs and bring their children over. Sometimes let them bring their parents over! As someone said bring the whole village over.

Bottom line, what is the real problem of low population? Lower GDP hence lower paychecks to government? Shouldn't they think a better longer sustainable solution instead of artificially inflate the headcounts in Singapore for a quick solution?

As ArchRival pointed out we are now suffering the fallout now.

I am not a Mathematician like our Dear Leader nor an Economist, I don't want to dwell on the number sum of overpopulation. I am more concern on the social aspect.

If you have friends,colleagues or relatives who are in the Singapore Civil Defence Force esp those in Shelter Company or Brigade, please ask them, what is the minimum amount of space per person in a shelter in order to stay comfortable, say 24 hours.

Given that square metre per person, multiply by, say, 5 million. Is our current land surface area enough to cover?

Supporters of 6.9M will boo and say, "Come on! how don't be absurd! how can is it possible all 5M take shelter or at the same place at the same time!"
For those who still can't visualise overpopulation, take a look of the Little India Riot aftermath.

What did the COI recommend and the government concur?

To prevent congestion and prevent its potential problems arising, all workers are enforced. Opps! wrong choice of word. All foreign workers are encouraged to stay in their dormitories after work.

We will bring entertainments, minimart and whatnots to your dormitories for your convenience. Just remember to stay in your dormitories after work. Don't wander around and rest well to work tomorrow. Thank You!

If they can do this to the FW, what stop them to doing something equivalent to us when comes a day we are overpopulated?

Is this the kind of life you like in Singapore?

You decide!
