Improve efficiency and reduce cost of living in Singapore

There are many aspects of Singapore that lead to inefficiency and high cost. I share some of them below:

a) Private tuition. The flaw in our education system make it necessary for parents to engage private tutors for their children. The manpower used in private tutors, and the need to travel to receive or get private tuition on a one-on-one basis, must lead to more resources being put in the education system.

b) Government online services. By saving an hour of the time of the civil servants, the badly designed processes caused the public to send several hours to online processes, including the login and searching for the online form. The total cost to the economy is several times of the attempted savings.

The inefficiency has resulted in high cost of doing business and the high cost of living.

If the problems are not recognized, the situation will continue to get worse. It has already reached a very bad state.

I want Singapore to be better, and will continue to point out the problems that should be recognized and rectified to improve the situation.

The minimum reserve price of land should be abolished. PAP govt just waiting for suckers to bid high for land & inflation ripples out.

Billionaire Peter Lim not dumb to bid high for overpriced land in SG to build motorcity.
