Our dear leaders have run out of ideas to keep the economy going and perhaps growing.

They are resorting to the usual formula of relying on construction to stimulate the economy hoping the flow on effect will produce growth. They just keep building more roads, highways and buildings (commercial, residential). Sinkieland is too expensive when it comes to other traditional avenues to stimulate the economy. For example, manufacturing (costs are too high in sinkieland), high tech manufacturing (we are no good at it and lacks skills and capability and can only support limited amount), petrochemical (it's been one of our staples for a long time now but companies are looking elsewhere), medical (we are being eclipsed by other countries) and biotechnology (well... i didn't hear it taking off here). There's much talk about fintech but then again it might just be hogwash or just a fad.

However, there is only so much the local market can consume and absorb from the output from construction. How much commercial space can the local market stomach? How greedy can the landlords go? They keep building flats but priced them at crazy prices, how long can this type of situation last before the sinkies can no longer afford the pigeon holes?

There are many things at play... MIW is just clueless and being an ostrich...

totally agree with u.

when u brought up construction in sgp not being helpful, this reminds me of a discussion on japanese road to nowhere: whether infra works will help the economy.

conclusion: infra works is only a short term solution while neglecting the structural issues dogging the base.

for sgp, this is especially so since most of the building materials and manpower r imported, thus giving rise to leakages.

ah loong and heng man have mathematics and economics training, but i dont see them showing this training in their policy-making.

now on fintech, i have been approached by some regarding fintech and when i asked them what is fintech, they have no clue except to tell me that they r looking to do payments.

fintech is much more than that, but sadly, many in sgp just jump in as a fad, not as a game changer.

to me, the below article sums up what fintech is.

i say quiet commercial area, it really quiet ma. and quiet does not mean vacancy or rental or empty

 

quiet in Dictionary word mean: 

adjective: making little or no noise

noun absence of noise or bustle; silence; calm
