"His central message is that the power of dictatorships comes from the willing obedience of the people they govern - and that if the people can develop techniques of withholding their consent, a regime will crumble."

Read review at SGEP :-

“Singapore’s citizens willingly concede their political power, trusting the state to deliver economic success on their behalf.”

If the S'pore Govt cannot continue to deliver economic success on the people's behalf ... then it will be in deep trouble. That must be why the GOVT. is talking simply about increasing income by 30% in 10 years.

If you are 50 yrs now and have lost nearly 10 years of retirement funds due to CPF past restructuring since 2003... with CPF rate about to be lowered on reaching age 50, and will income still continue to rise by 30% if you are already 50? This is a big question.
