I am really amused by his finding that Singapore has the lowest (only one rank higher than Myanmar) budget in term of % of GDP for education and health care. His numbers just confirm the feeling swelling in the ground that government ha snot done enough to improve the social well being of the society. Don't even need to worry about welfare state yet.

In my opinion, if his findings are true, they account for 70% of the problem we are facing currently and it may even be matter of survival. We are not expecting government to overcome the law of nature and Singapore be completely problem free utopia.. However, they need to have the right policies that will benefit the most people in the long run.

We are sacrificing freedom, freedom of speech etc...to attain this state?
