Why property prices cannot fall
HDB has been selling land in choice locations where the price has already been fixed at market prices and keeps driving the demand, that is why prices cannot fall.
How to provide affordable flats?
Start building on non choice locations where the market prices has not yet been determined or at a low value by clearing land in forested areas etc, thereforethe prices will automatically fall.
Immigration, do we need so many foreigners?
No, only in certain industry like construction, waste disposal etc others we can use Singaporeans.
Singaporeans should come first for jobs
Make minimum wage compulsory with productivity increases. Foreigners need to also pay CPF to level the playing field. No need for any quota system. Foreigners get paid CPF the same as Singaporeans, only maids, construction workers get paid 50% of their salary in CPF, and all
foreigners can withdraw their CPF after their contract ends, but will not be paid directly, it will be transferred back to their country’s retirement, healthcare savings plan.
Can we lower the healthcare costs?
Yes, by ensuring insurance companies are efficient by pooling resources and use their free resources to reinvest, whereby lowering the costs of insurance. Second, hospitals
should seperate their services for providing advice and dispensing medication.
It is too technical for the layman and I will provide answers later.
Is the government really helping the poor and the aged?
Look around and you can find the answers, No.
How to solve population growth, caring for the aged?
Through non-profit organisations and the government has not provided enough support.
With the factors above the government’s income will be reduced, but no fear there are so manyways to invest to get a higher rate of return, what matters most is all areas of the economic problems must be addresssed, so that when all problems are solved, the only way then willbe up, a balance of GDP with a goal oriented approach to solve old age, healthcare, retirement, housing, education and population growth.
WP will never be the voice of all opposition and Mr Low of WP better wake up his ideas, he is walking the same path as LKY, that is why I support SPP and RP but not WP, no bite. Chiam See Tong and Kenneth Jeyaretnam will fare even better. AIM issue will not solve the problems of the people, and will not win political votes, WP has been sidetracked by the PAP.
