20141210 Developers Declared State of Singapore Economy

20141210 Developers Declared State of Singapore Economy

Real estate accounts for about half of the total fixed capital formation. 
One in 5 people in the workforce is employed by the real estate and construction industry.

President Chia Boon Kuah 
Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore’s (REDAS) 
55th REDAS anniversary dinner at the Ritz-Carlton

Great Problem Solver in Minister Khaw

Minister Khaw Boon Wan has, within a short span of time, turned around housing supply from prices spinning out of control to supplies more than demand.

This showed that a leader with wisdom and commitment, he can capitalize on existing infrastructure, rapidly make a land scarce island overflow with housing supply.

This showed that PAP members has wisely chosen their most capable to be Chairman PAP.

Among PAP members, he has been proven to effectively focus and resolve the most important problem assigned to him.

Higher Calling

However Mr Khaw is not Minister of Housing.
Minister is for National Development.

After solving the basic Housing issue, should we not encourage him to look at how to develop the nation?

With a nation well developed, can Developers not focus on greater goals, higher objectives?

With Developers achieving greater goals, higher objectives, will they not be sought after by the world? 

Will Singapore not become the world model, be the center for conferences for solving such problems?

Did LKY World City Prize, Water Prize achieve any major breakthroughs ?

Singapore can be Most Competitive 

A land scarce island can provide more than enough housing within short span of time.
With so many PMETs, retired doctors, nurses underemployed, unemployed.

Can manufacturers not be provided cheapest factory space for manufacturing the most sought after goods for export, for the world ?
Can airport, laboratories, hospitals, conference and exhibition halls, hotel rooms not be the world most competitive?

The myth of Singapore is land scarce, housing price must go up, PMETs are too expensive, manufacturing cannot be competitive are all proven wrong.

I come, not without knowing what is to come.
I come, not without knowing how Singapore can achieve greater success.

To Win Bread & Abalone for Singapore

This article will provide the direction that will address how Singapore, an export dependent economy, can DEVELOP Singaporeans, including Estate Developers, to become Stronger, to compete in the world, to win bread and abalone, with the objectives to make Singapore better.

We pride ourselves as full literacy, highly educated, first world nation.
We cannot be focusing on Bread and Bread alone !

We must provide the best solutions for the world, so that some of us can have Abalone, Caviar, Foie gras to their liking !

Developers Declared State of Singapore Economy

Real estate accounts for about half of the total fixed capital formation. 
One in 5 people in the workforce is employed by the real estate and construction industry.
This is an overwhelming industry. 

How can this overwhelming industry not crushing the economy ?
How can this overwhelming industry drive Singapore economy ?

Developers are Not Charitable Organizations

First,  Developers are not charity organizations.
Developers sell only to people who has the cash or can secure loans.

They need people with employment or profitable businesses !

Housing is not Wealth Generator

For every house sold, we have to create job for the buyer for at least 10, 20, 30 or even 50 years, in order for the housing loan to be serviced, fully serviced.

House is a resting place, a private family space, it is not a production space.
Housing is not production machines, food factories, ship yards, computer data centers.

Formation of capital in housing will tie the capital to the housing.
Therefore, Housing is a not a source for wealth creation, but a sink for wealth.

Oversize construction industry can crush the economy !

What Support Developers want?

REDAS Chairman stated that ONE in FIVE of our workforce are in Real Estate and Construction (of housing, road, MRT, drainage ? )

Can the other Four in the work force buy up this year houses built?
Can all FIVE of the work force buy the house built next year, year after next, each year?
The answer is obvious.

We can easily open the flood gate for more migrants to buy up house built.
If the migrants come merely to buy the house for investment, without seriously invest in Singapore Economy, then they are merely looking for capital gain from these houses. 
They are speculators. 
They will intensify, dramatize the volatility of prices.

REDAS Chairman warned:

We urge the Government to stand ready, to take supportive measures to prevent a tipping point, should the market turn volatile and worsen further.
REDAS president Chia Boon Kuah
who is also the President and CEO of Guoco Land

Developers, or all wiser persons, want buyers, immigrants to be contributing to Singapore's growth, not as cheap labors squatting on top of each other, or property speculators who look for cheap buy, big gain, fast sell.

The support most valuable to Developers is to use Singapore as a platform, to invent, design, build, operate housing, towns, cities, cluster of cites. 

So that they are sought after by nations, their developments are best sellers.

20141209 外劳没犯罪 高过罚款的人头税

20141209 外劳没犯罪  高过罚款的人头税





1. 绝大部分外劳没有犯罪,但他们每个月缴交的人头税,(不论是工人还是老板还, 都是膨胀生产成本)都超过他们在新加坡长期逗留期间因犯罪而缴交的罚款。

2. 人头税是反映外劳对社会、房屋、交通等增加的负荷。

3. 人头税因此是责任性亏欠 (liabilities) , 不是贵政府的收入, 更不是利润。
4. 人力部因此除了用人头税来化解社会负担,没有权利把人头税用在其他方面。

5. 贵政府必要用人头税来提供住房给外劳。
6. 因为贵政府,只有贵政府是唯一从人头税获益的个体,也是唯一可以任意调整人头税,收取人头税,规定他人准时缴交人头税的权威。

7. 交通部必要研究如何应用人头税来提供交通给外劳上下班,基本和原始的娱乐。
8. 新加坡人因此不需负担扩建公路、地铁、公共交通等国家投资。
9. 地铁公司必要从人力部吸取款项来交给交通部七百五十万(一年内前的一百五十万大跃进)来督促地铁公司的服务水平。









您也可以读主流报章在报告印度人对到访的新加坡总理提的不客气问题。 同一天报道武吉士地铁工场崩塌压死外劳们。




而不是劳民伤财,劳师动众、集结廉价劳工, 大兴土木,建世界最高的瀑布。

20141209 Foreigners Committed No Crimes, Levy Higher than Fines

20141209 Foreigners Committed No Crimes, Levy Higher than Fines

Open Letter to Mr Tan Chuan Jin, Minister of Manpower
Saving Singapore Invoice Number 4

I come not without knowing what is to come.
I come not to criticize issues that i have no solutions.
I come not to reject you as leaders, but to assist you to become a leader, great leader.

Singapore situation is deteriorating rapidly, we need great leader.
Singapore is performing unforced self-destruction, the dire situation is now clear.
At this moment, every Singaporean is precious to save our nation, our mother land.

This is regarding your intention to fine owners for over crowded hostel.
May i encourage you to make your wise, responsible decision ONLY after considering the followings:

1. If the workers can afford better, more spacious quarters, then would this happen ?
2. Most foreigners committed no crimes, but  every month the levy (whether pay by workers or employers, they are burden to business operation) is more than total fines they pay throughout their working life here.

3. Levy is a reflection of the cost to our society, housing, transportation etc.
4. Levy therefore is a liability, not an income to your government. 
Levy is never a profit !
5. MOM therefore has no freedom to use it, other than using it to mitigate the social cost.
6. These levy should be used to provide housing by the government.
7. This is the responsibility of this government, government is solely responsible.
8. Clearly because your government, only your government is the one, only one who has the power to change the levy at will, and collecting them in full, collecting them in full to be paid promptly.
Collector of Levy is solely responsible.

9. Transport Ministry should discuss how to use these levy for transporting these foreigners to work, from work, to leisure, to drink and be merry.
10. Singaporeans therefore should not be responsible for increase in cost of transport, especially the cost of constructing  and operating new MRTs, Roads, Buses...
11. SMRT should collect monies from MOM in order to pay $7.5 Millons (increased 5 times from $1.5 Million a year before) for MOT to supervise quality of their services.
MOT can increase income more than 5 times a year

Mr Tan, i disagree with others that Military Generals like you are not qualified to run Public Offices.
Mr Tan, this nation invested heavily in you, our people entrusted their survival, future in your hand.
It is costly to have one term Minister like Raymond Lim.

Mr Tan, if i abandon you, am i as irresponsible, idiotic, masochist as those who abandon his country man?

I have helped the eye surgeon to explain to waterway experts, using a sickness of blood vessel in eyes. Dr Bala use it elegantly, and wrote to thank me.
So similar to saving water minister, i use the analogy of financing an Armed Forces for this case.

Mr Tan, you are a soldier, if government collect similar levy on every soldier in the SAF, do you think the SAF can afford to have the soldiers clothed in army uniforms, never mind about sleeping on top of each other on the floor in barracks.

Mr Tan, you are a soldier, army pay is your sole income. If SAF asked soldiers to  stay in private operated hostels and pay rent out from their pity army pay, do you think SAF soldiers can afford a hostel in any conditions better than foreign laborers.

This explained why army, key infrastructures are mostly operated by nations - cheaper.
This explained why levy cannot be imposed at will, especially to the work force - costly.

Mr Tan, these levy you collected from foreigners are monies earned by hard labor, long working hours, some selling their bodies, and even lives sacrificed as you witnessed right in front of you.

Mr Tan, you must hold pride as a man, a well educated man, a well paid servants, servants paid by residents of Singapore, more than half of them are migrants.

Not just Singaporeans, foreign workers here, even the world is watching you.

Mr Tan, please read the statement by the Chinese Embassy a year ago on Chinese Bus Drivers strike, out of similar issues of poor basic living conditions.
The Chinese Embassy stated clearly, firmly that the root cause of this issues must be resolved.

This is about the reliability of our key basic services for our economy to tick.
Would a responsible Prime Minister after much dialog, address this issues and other similar issue at National Day Rally?

You may also read the main stream news paper, on the same day, reporting what PM Lee was asked very blunt questions in India and the fatal accidents in Bugis Station.

This letter to you, is to help you to live as a dignified person than what bible refer to as a tax collector.

May i suggest you take from your own pocket a sum of Singapore Dollar One Millions Only to set up Tan Chuan Jin Foundation (TCJ Foundation) for  Basic Conditions for Migrant Workers. (BCMW) to design, manage basic conditions housing at low costs.

While may i request a check, from your own pocket,  Singapore One Dollar Only to Mr Lim Swee Keng for Saving Singapore Invoice 4

Is it more important that we build solid foundation, reducing cost of business operations, while increasing capabilities and capacity to produce faster, more export to sell to  the world?
Do we inviting more cheap labors to build the tallest fountain at our airport and aggravate the economy, world reputation that snatches human lives away?

The workers cannot escape from the quarters, a public housing, 
The passenger on stalled Sentosa Light Rail took 4 hours to be evacuated。
Are there evacuation flaws in design?

20140309C 最大的悲剧- 就是作践自己


人民行动党、淡马锡、新加坡人,新加坡是最大的危机不是钱,而是失去最基本的,最重要的,最有价值的 - 失去自尊。

1 .  不仅她没有培育出她有信心欣然交棒子的继任者
2.   13年的风雨,她没有晋升为淡马锡的主席
3.   她需要向一个根本对全球基金管理完全没有明确经验的主席负责
4.   一个不合格的人监督一个杰出、合格的人
5.  一个资质平庸的监督一个杰出的斯坦福大学工科毕业生
6.  一个投资菜鸟监督一个 13年经历风雨的投资者
7.  菜鸟监督资深人

淡马锡主席丹纳卸任时是不是说新的主席,67岁的林文兴“是学习很快的人” 。




一个最可靠,更杰出的人, 他的夫人,也被忽略,也不被尊重。



20140309 Biggest Tragedy - Lost Pride as a Person

20140309 Biggest Tragedy - Lost Pride as a Person

In Parliament, Ms Josephine said about Temasek and GIC investment, about the risk they take.
But Josephine failed to see the big risk.

Dear Josephine

What you are talking is number, is about money, money can be earned, can be lost, so money is trivial.
The biggest risk of PAP, Temasek, Singaporeans, Singapore is the lost of the most basic, the most valuable - lost of pride as a person.

How can a lady, highly qualified Engineer, helming Temasek since 2001 for 13 years.
1. Not only she did not mentor a successor she is confident and proud to hand over to.
2. She is not promoted to Chair Temasek, but
3. Reporting to a new Chairman, who has no proven record for global fund management.
4. A unqualified person compare to the Spouse of the Prime Minister
5. Who is a brilliant Stanford University Engineering Graduate,
7. a 13 years experienced investor.
8. A unqualified Chaired over the super qualified?

Did the outgoing Temasek Chairman Dhana commented on this New Chairman,a 67 year old Lim Boon Heng "A Quick Leaner".
If so, is Prime Minister Commanding a 67 year old rookie to go to learn on the job for investing nation's reserve and Chair over his wife?

The meritocracy of Singapore failed.
Meritocracy even failed to apply to the spouse of the Prime Minister.
This is the biggest risk not just for Temasek Holding, but for the government, the nation, the future generations of Singapore.

Because not only the succession, the cultivation of future generation we did not do.
Even the most able of this very generations has been wipe out, totally wiped out.
Singapore as a nation, Singaporeans as citizen are fundamentally uprooted.

The Prime Minister has lost pride as a person of who he is, what he is capable of doing, capable of constructing Singapore as a better nation.
What his more qualified spouse is capable of is also ignored, is also disrespected.

If the most trusted, highly qualified person is not fully developed, is bypassed from promotion... which Singaporeans could not be eliminated from being employed, cultivated, promoted?
Is this why 3PM Lee affirmed that only foreigners are the source of our growth?
Temasek as the biggest fund manager cannot create jobs for bankers?

When a person lost pride of who he is, this is the biggest tragedy of that person.
If this person is the Prime Minister, tragedy for the nation, for the people is NOT set?

20140106 Two Keys to Save Singapore

20140106 Two Keys to Save Singapore
1. Edited 20140106 2200hours 
2. Edited 20140107 0136hours

This is the first working Monday of 2014. 
I voiced only on issues that i can provide solutions.

Singapore never appear so clear. 
Colin Gan Cheong Kiat [1], a Singaporean sent from Bandung the following. 

To me a leader is someone who makes those around him better. 
If you look around you, and you're not making people's lives or work easier, better, or higher in quality then you're not leading. 
This is quoted by Ruben Emir Gnanalingam, 
Chief Executive Officer,37 yrars old Westports Malaysia.
chinadailyasia.com dated 18/10/2013 to 24/10/2013 full speed ahead 

Do our leaders need a young man from our less developed neighbour to tell us what is leadership?
Do we need further justification we need to save Singapore?
Singapore never appear so clear. 

To save Singapore we just need two keys.

ONE: Shoulder the Responsibility 

Our Great Founder spoke on our significant investment for growth, Biotech :
"This issue has been deliberated over a period of several months in Cabinet and decided by PM Goh and cabinet. 
The policy has been continued by PM Lee and his cabinet.  We have made significant investments in time and resources. 
We have to get the most out of what we have put in."
Chen Huifen (15 March 2007). "Singapore to push ahead with Biomed".Business Times.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Yeo

We cannot expect the Great Founder to champion the corrective action at age 86.
We cannot pin our hope at Mr Goh Chok Tong, since he did not come out to defend his decision nor did he come out to provide a way to "get the most out of what we have put in!"

Did we see our PM shoulder the corrective action?
Did we see our PM remember our Great Founder's command?
A nation succeed because leader courageously shoulder the responsibility.

This was after i informed our Great Founder the limited upside of biotech and recommended him  to move Philip Yeo to create jobs.
Soon Yeo was moved from AStar (in charged of national R&D)  to Spring (in charge of Standards and Productivity.) 

Springa second fiddle to EDB.
Singapore's great success was attributed to EDB
EDB develop capabilities, not merely improve productivity.
Only by developing capabilities can economy grow healthily. 
Any growth without improving strengths and capabilities can the best be just unsightly benign growth, worse fatal malignant growth. 

Can Philip Yeo perform the most critical task in his career, the most important challenge of Singapore at Spring?

Facts speak louder, picture of facts are being built.
Mr Devan Nair spoke it in words, words cast into metal, sticking on stones, hanging high on a building.

palely said Devan Nair Institute for Employment and Employability.

We fall from Development, to Productivity, to merely Employment !
We come to a state of pitifully justifying our highly educated, better disciplined Singaporean are employable?

Why even the most dynamic, self-driven public servant fail to turn the tide, fail to save Singapore, basically because we miss the second key:

TWO - Seek and Respect Wisdom

Many may conclude today that without Dr Goh Keng Swee we may not achieve our rapid success, great success. 

Dr Goh is an economist, just like Mr Goh Chok Tong. The most celebrated trait of Dr Goh is he ceaselessly questioning every thing, curiously seeking answers. Improving in wisdom is he, rapidly developing is our capabilities, that propel our economy. 

If Mr Goh seek to the bottom of issues, solve important problems when first bud like a mustard seed, Singapore will maintain that lead, and always ahead of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan.

If Philip Yeo, for that matter, every Ministers, Officers curiously asked what can we do better, more efficiently for something the world need, then our export economy will prosper.

However, if you point finger to others, keep your shoulder away from responsibilities, shut yourself down to only utter what you know, what you love, what you like to do, then even you invest monies in trillion, you organize dialogues in mega scales, control media in international arena, you missed big opportunity for success, great success, so great a success that Singapore actually can become the world model for city planning, cluster of cities planning, building design, self-cleansing waterway which has been detailed in a submission hand delivered to Lee Kuan Yew on 2006 05 18. http://www.cts-ideas.com/20Works/Writings/20060518WorldLostDirection.pdf

Today, we may say manufacturing is no longer the driving force, no longer the dominant employer.
But how to run a system efficiently, expediently is the forte of manufacturing engineers.
Their expertise in packing more into even tighter space with enough breathing space, putting what you need closer to where you are, run faster without choke point can be applied to job creation closer to home, city planning, road transport, waterway.

Lee ignored the most important part of the input, and just spring Yeo to create jobs

Ignore what are critical for a city to tick efficiently.

Import what can cause a city to fundamentally melt down .
Failed to conceive what can become our world class export.

Then waterway choked, dengue and floods never end, never end.
Traffic jammed, COE, ERP, Tunnels more, never solve, never solve.

Cost of constructing housing, land and material cost rise, rise, never end, never end.
Then adding more people, to collect more foreigner levy, collect, more, more, more,,,, 
Then cost of housing, rent, transport, water, energy, labours make our businesses cannot compete, cannot survive, die, so they die.

China do not need me to go to their top leaders. By sharing at UNUF@Nanjing and Regional Conference@Fuzhou, China applies what were conceived, shared, and congratulation was send to PM Lee on how Singaporean's solutions for cities, cluster of cities can have higher density, uninterrupted traffic flow are made into China's project .... (Page 4 - 7 http://www.cts-ideas.com/20Works/21Foresighted.pdf)

Since no one seemed to be preparing 4th Generation Ministers Foo, Gan, Lee, Lui, Shanmugam, Vivian to be Prime Minister.
One generation is already lost.

What i shared here are what will make or break our 5th generation Ministers, prosper or destroy this nation.

Once we start to seek and respect wisdom, problems become solvable, solution become affordable, Singapore become very very efficient, businesses become competitive in the world again.
Then shouldering the responsibility all of us can !
Singapore can then be saved from dramatic, unforced self-destruction.
What is good for the Singaporean people, will be equally applicable to the world !
World Media will rush to interview and promote our PM, Ministers, Secretaries.
These will be what the world media loves to talk about Singapore.

A leader is someone who makes those around him better.
Leaders of all professions, communities are to create success, reduce sufferings.

Happy New Year is not a wishful wishes.
It is a commitment to shoulder, to excel - overcome and be happy are then possible!
