The sun illuminated the backside of the funnel bright orange at times, as the strong tornado moved over a lake on one occasion. The surface of gravel roads were scoured off, large farm equipment was flying through the air, and high tension power structures were knocked over and twisted. Thankfully no one was hurt from this tornado, as it mostly remained over open terrain

The news is not that social democracies are trying to commit suicide, the problem is to explain how did they succeed in surviving for so long.

Comparing the success of Hong Kong and Singapore apparently differs a lot if you compare consumption per head rather than GDP per head.

As for Lee Kuan Yew, a leading official in the British colonial administration in the 1950s described him as the absolutely the smartest fellow around, but such a thug.

I watched a TV interview of Lee a few months ago. He still has a razor sharp mind at age 86.

His analysis in that interview of why Afghanistan was going to be a quagmire for the USA was as sharp a real politic analysis as any you might encounter.

He delayed his own son’s rise to the throne because Lee senior thought his son had to prove he got to be Prime Minister under his own steam.

I moved from California (Bay area) to Singapore in Jan.

Singapore does have a some safety net (public provident fund) although it does not have subsidized health insurance or unemployment benefits. (note: umemployment rate about 2%)

I miss California weather/culture but Singapore lifestyle is actually pretty good. Most of the government restriction enhance quality of life and I dont mind public transport/ censorship.

Are there laws prohibiting Singaporeans that want such a social safety net to get together and form one on a voluntary basis?

On the safety-net question:

The Singapore philosophy is the same one that Europe used to have - that families are the real safety net, not the government.

But as families have fewer and fewer children, that is certainly a problem for the future...

Flying economy on SA is like first class on other airlines.

I was told many years ago by an insider that although SA is state-owned the government showed common sense in choosing an experienced airline executive as the first CEO (after the split from Malaysian Airlines) and leaving him alone to "get on with it."

While the tax rates seem attractive, I'm not sure if anyone around here would actually like to live there, much less be a citizen. Spending a month there once, I learned that Singapore citizens must save 40% of their income (for housing and education), that censorship is a fact of life (check out the Press Freedom Index), that college professors are required to enforce dress codes among their students (no shorts), and that you can only drive a car if you bid for a Certificate of Entitlement, which gives you the right to actually drive your car for 10 years. Note also that public housing ("HDB estates"), in which 85% of the population live, are subject to neighborhood racial quotas, and that the government subsidizes high-income citizens to get more kids. Regardles of whether you like chewing gum or not, Singapore is a pretty restrictive place.

Sure Singapore doesn't tax you like they do in Europe.

But Singapore also doesn't have the social safety nets Europe has for its citizens.

So which do you prefer?




Awesome. Thanks. BTW, has anyone else noticed that airport culture and the airline literature tends to be highly soc-dem?

I used to fly Singapore airlines to Korea for my job. It is very good. Though they used to wake you up in the middle of the "night" and offer you pot-noddles or ice cream, I found that disturbed my sleep.

It'll be interesting to see how many westerners move to Singapore based on their policies.

Yep. We already see ads (on TV, and running a lot) with Arnold telling us how fantastic California is to work in. Those advertisements giving the pitch on why I should move my business to California are always a laugh-getter when we see them.




My limited understanding of airline history is that Southwest got its initial foothold by selectively choosing its flight attendants: http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/aircraft-pictures/2008/08/1970s-southwest-airlines-stewa.html
