Low ranking under UN human development index

Singapore has a low ranking of 27 among the developed nations in this UN human development index. In spite of a high per capita income and the hard work put in by Singaporeans, who have to work long hours at the expense of raising a family, the ranking is quite low. Something is wrong with our priorities and our system. I think that the focus on elitism and the low priority given to justice and fairness is bad for Singapore.
