The politicization of policy consideration in Singapore

leave a comment »

Alex Au via Yawning Bread points out in a June 26th post that 24 out of 25 members of the Singapore Economic Strategies Committee are either government leaders or businessmen, with only one member hailing from academia.

This comes after The Online Citizen noted that 5 out of 9 of the new NMPs appointed (Siew Kum Hong was not re-appointed) had named MM Lee Kuan Yew as their favourite politician.

Don’t expect drastic change.  *Yawn*.  I confidently predict more of the same.
