  • The Immaculate Conception:

    (And mention) when the angels said: ‘O Mary, indeed God gives you the good news of a word sent from Him, whose name will be the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, esteemed in honor in this world and the Hereafter, and of those who are close to the Lord. He will speak to the people even while in the cradle, and when becomes a man and he will be amongst the righteous.”
    She replied, ‘My Lord, how can I have a son when no man has touched me.’ He said, ‘So it will be, for God creates what He wills. When He decides something, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is! And He will teach him the Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel. And make him a Messenger to the Children of Israel (pronouncing): “Verily, I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I make for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, then breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by the grace of God Almighty. And I shall heal the blind and the leper, and I will bring the dead back to life by the grace of God Almighty. And I shall inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Surely, these are signs for you if you are people of faith. I have come to confirm the Mosaic Law that was revealed before me, and to allow you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with proof from your Lord, so fear God and obey me. Indeed, God Most Compassionate and Merciful is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him only. This is the Straight Way.”

    (Quran 3:45-51)

    Happy New Year to bros and sisters. Wish u all , good health and serenity.

    We are moving into a turbulent decade. Exciting but with sprinkles of fearful uncertainty. For those of us who hope for ‘better the devil u know than the one u dont’, then u are not recognizing the context and the geo-political change happening globally.

    Globalization that Singapore had profited from, unfortunately, is not an eternal panacea but a political and theoretical platform that is running its last legs. The idiotic and repeated phrase that Singapore is a ‘price taker’, a narrative used, to transfer and maintain political and economic powers to government and elites must be debunked.

    The supply side economics that favor the rich and investors through significant tax cuts/breaks, in the hope that this will incentivize them to invest, and in return drive wages up had stalled, and in fact, wages had regressed taking into account the costs of living.

    US supply side is about lobbyists and free movement of capital, China supply side is about State capitalism; exporting capital and extending political influence. The reining in of supply side economics in US by Trump, by ring fencing investments through executive actions and trade wars has in part bolstered employment in US (Keynesian demand).

    I see China, releasing its grip on State enterprises in the next decade in order to have a domestic consumption economy that is 60/70% of GDP.

    Underlying this shift of supply to demand side economics is political unrest globally. The stagnation of wages and political fragmentation brought about by globalization.

    This strange thing called ‘price taker’ is nothing but a policy decision. https://www.scmp.com/magazines/post-magazine/long-reads/article/3043246/us-china-trade-war-why-everything-you-thought

    The article showed how US agriculture is run with deliberate illegal immigrants, to keep labor costs low. This makes US agriculture competitive. However, Japan had resisted that, and this in turn drove the industry to be ‘artisan’ and more innovative to be competitive.

    https://www.straitstimes.com/opinion/rebuilding-confidence-in-the-political-centre

    Tharman is still the outstanding politician of Singapore today. His speech (above link) deals with the political fragmentation TRE was talking about since 2005. Instead, the parroting PAP IBs regurgitate with a mindless regularity that must embarrass the constant North Star, about how placid Singapore is.

    Not anymore, PAP policy that tried to ride the supply side- global capitalist highway without a pause for its ppl will now see opposition make unprecedented gains in next GE.

    PAP will tweaked its social safety net,but the seeds of discontent has grown and blossoming. Spore HuatAh!
