'Quantum leap' in productivity needed: Lim Swee Say

Unless Singapore finds a way to improve raise the productivity of its workforce, its days of high economic growth are over, the Manpower Minister says
"A man who has depths in his shame meets his destiny and his delicate decisions upon paths which few ever reach."

*haiz*  singaporeans just screwed themselves by making a stand against foreign talents ..... :(

I've warned before of the dangers of tightening the FT influx ....

now we are paying the price:
(1)  have to work either harder (no more time to surf sammyboy) or longer (raising retirement age) or faster (no more long lunch hours or chit-chatting during work)

(2)  no one to rent our properties to,  rental income drops,  property prices drop

My point being that we need FT infux (the right qualified ones filling the gaps where singaporeans are not qualified or making up the numbers where singaporeans lack) - this will help sustain and improve productivity and GDP.

The secondary effect will be good rental income for retirees dependent on investment properties for their golden retirement  ;)

Let's all cooperate and huat together in the year of the fiery monkey!

Do Singaporeans engage in intercourse with friends? (i.e. friends with benefits)
