Isn't Singapore supposed to be a Top 10 US ally?Isn't Singapore supposed to be a Top 10 US ally? Singapore was not in the 29 countries of Trump's call list, and yet when President Tsai from Taiwan called him and he tweeted about it. When PM Lee called him there is no mention by Trump but a lot of local media drumming up. Trump invited Philippines's Duterte to White House but we didn't get the invite yet trying...

PAP makes use of us to serve NS, but does not give adequate compensationPAP makes use of us to serve NS, but does not give adequate... NS never had meaning from the beginning. I will not elaborate on this. 1) Israeli conscription was due to actual threat. Both male and female had to serve. And in reward, they receive things like free medical care until death. In Singapore, after so much complains, only recently they give out some money. But only...

Realpolitik?Realpolitik? This fracas between China and Singapore. Criticising the government for real or perceived foreign policy failures is not being disloyal.

The unholy trinity of economics?The unholy trinity of economics? With rising US bond yields, Singapore will be facing the consequences of the Unholy Trinity at a terrible time. What is that you wonder? The Unholy or the Impossible Trinity is the exchange rate, interest rates and the capital account, of which no government can control all three at the same time. In Singapore's case,...

“Home-grown talent” drops to 38th place?“Home-grown talent” drops to 38th place? I refer to the article “IMD report: Singapore high in attracting talent but poor in developing home-grown talent” (The Singapore Daily, Nov 29). Why do we rank so poorly “in the investment and development of home-grown talent”? Let’s start from the very beginning of life. In school, an undisclosed number...
