Singaporeans cannot understand the theory of supply and demand?

Singapore is a choice country to many wildlife, for work and for play or to escape high taxes. Singapore passport is highly in demand and highly desirable. What do these mean in terms of supply and demand? The simple principle of demand and supply is that when demand is high and supply is low, price will go up and up.

But Singaporeans cannot understand this. This is why there is an open leg policy, legs opened so wide for everything to come in, begging every wildlife to come in. It is so cheap and easy for wildlife to come to Singapore and paying pittance for it. Work levy and for PRs and PMETs, almost free. Then there is this silly and traitorous CECA that makes entry to Singapore a breeze and so free.

If there are so many people queuing to come into Singapore for all sorts of reasons, why is the cost of entry so low, so cheap? Why our so clever govt did not turn this into a high revenue source? Or are they satisfied just to collect worker’s  and maid’s levies? Should not they go higher up and collect more from the PMETs and PRs?

And why give free scholarships to the tune of hundreds of millions annually when our education system is world class? Should not the demand to study here be so overwhelming and the supply limited that the fees for education here be raised higher for foreigners instead of Singaporeans?

Maybe all the so called demands to come here, all the long queues are fake news. Only the beggars, the cheats, the conmen, the wildlife are queuing, not the real McCoys. Even then there is more reasons to make it more expensive for the cheats and conmen and wildlife to come in as they are not desirable.

When things are in demand, you can charge a high price for it. And when supply is limited, you can charge even higher. But easy immigration only happens in this stupidity has no cure island. No country will make immigration as easy as this silly island. So the supply of easy immigration is also very small.

What do you think?

    The silly ones are those who open legs. But stupid Sinkies didn’t realize they actually didn’t open their legs, instead they have open Sinkies’ legs. Maybe silly is not the word, they are too smart not to know. Traitor is a more appropriate word. They sell out Singaporeans’ interests for one halfman-halfwoman.

    Singaporeans are not stupid. Those who always say bopian Sinkies are the stupid beyond cure ones!

    From 2015 onwards, we have 70% stupid ones. Let’s see after GE2020, how many Sinkies are there. Will it increase or will it reduce?

    If it reduces we still got a little hope.
    If it increases this country is done for, better migrate.

  • Harder Truths:

    The answer is not as simple as that. Open-leg policy is the simplest way to create artificial demand for goods and services and increase the GDP through banks, land development profits and individual taxation.

    $G’s economy depends on the oil trade and services sector – there is no real manufacturing or agriculture to speak of. Since the demise of the oil trade many banks.

    Note the government does not contribute to the GDP through its services – it takes money from citizens to pay for its own survival. The bigger the government the more it takes. Plus the government prints money into circulation to fund its projects – this creates high inflation that actually steal wealth from the ordinary citizen. Other ways to extract money are inflated land prices, GST plus other hidden fees that cannot be avoided.

    The government needs to create projects to expand its GDP. This means more taxes and higher asset prices to milk the citizen. There is no production creating wealth here – simply theft from those who produce to those who live off them.

    The cost of living increases but wages and work are dependant on competing with FT with rising inflation even as citizens get older and less physically capable. This is why many countries stand up to such policies to protect the locals against exploitation by banks, property owners and the government that works for them.

    The infusion of FT is necessary to create new debt through lending to the FT, creating companies that live off the FT cam and lowering the cost for good and services produced. This condition is unsustainable – the more FT come in the more FT need to come in to create further growth.

    The end of such a policy is always economic collapse after exhaustion of citizens’ assets and people too much debt that cannot be repaid. This is a proven problem and that is why communist countries always fail.

    Currently the only source of real revenue for the government is the citizen as a cash-cow. The oil trade has collapsed. There is always a time limit until the system is unable to function. We most likely will be reaching that limit after the next GE – which also may be the last real one.

    @Harder Truth

    This is why I come to read alternate news, other than to avoid the lobotomy by the mainstream media.

    Thought things are obviously more complex and intricate than that, the overview is an excellent idea of the mechanics of how $$ flow in little red dot, how GDP is gamed by the govt, how the loser is always the people at the base of the pyramid (the average SG and the new “FT”) and the winners is always the rich and connected in this current economic system, and what one needs to do to prep for the eventual demise (or determine what will be valuable in time to come).

    It is all a numbers’ game eh? Citizens are just digits to be manipulated by the govt.

    Many of those who littered here said they are Sinkies instead of telling they are Malaysians.
    The same game is played out everywhere, more or less.

  • Dont jump the gun:

    @ Many of those who littered here said they are Sinkies instead of telling they are Malaysians.

    All race litter.

    Sg local also same thing.

    Beside my block , a badminton court . Surrounding the courts are 2stainless steel benches. Malay neighbours nearby alway play their Sepak takraw almost every evening until 10.30pm. They would bring along their supermarket mineral waters or can drinks. After game over, they would drink and chit chat for about half an hour to a full hour before knock off. Everytime they leave they just leave the empty cans or plastic containers on the benches or floor , even though rubbish bins are few feets away. And there are more than one bins factoring the hdb blocks beside. Yhe court. I witness this at least 30x . In fact with several pics taken , i can report them anytime.

    ….factoring the hdb blocks beside the court.

    Nowadays walk also have to under shelter. Once not under shelter, one used sanitary napkin free falling from sky. Missed by about 3 to 4 steps. Walk faster a bit , really hong kan.

    the white monkey idiotic leadership would also be too glad to perpetuate such notion ‘sinkies commit more crimes than FTs’ in order to ‘protect’ their 6.9m open-leg policy ?????

  • No need save singkies:

    No need save singkies. They get what they ask for.

    They need to be spoonfed. Eg. To be told hdb depreciate to zero instead of using what they learnt in school or work about depreciation. Its psychological. Brainwashed effect. Its like if a PhD believes shit can be eaten, he will happily eat it.

    By virtue of democracy, majority rules .

    There is no way to save them. They made the decision for 53 years. This is what they want.

    I do not for once want to save them. Its not possible. I just accept that sg will remain a country with system the majority wants. I just get ready to retire elsewhere and ideally keep my citizenship.

    There is no need to save singkies. They must get what they ask for. The future generation must suffer. We just need to find out exit plan.

    Let it be.
    This land of ignorance is a big market.

  • Really?:

    We accuse the PAP and Govt of group think. And it is the same in the general population. Without diversity, we are as prone to group think as the PAP and Govt.

    You just have to see the cliquish ways of many people, and see how rigid and uniform and unyielding many of us become when we work in an environment with only Singaporeans (with similar backgrounds) over a long period.

    We’d never make it because our way of life and the high standards are good only on paper. The rest of the world is living on a different planet, and couldn’t care less about our ways nor do they want any of it.

    The fact that this sort of comment can appear is testament to the delusions many of us have.

    But majority if not all pmd or bike riders resulted in serious injuries or death are sg locals. I witness prcs or Bangladesh also chiong but so far never hear serious accidents.
