waiting time for BTOs is ridiculous not to mention so difficult to ballot successfully.

even resale HDB prices are becoming out of reach.

Replying to original OP -

Yes, but a lot of it is also triggered by the pandemic. It's not just Singapore. The world is in decline.

Housing prices are just the byproduct of scarcity. Happens when we have too many people and too little space.

E.g. Hong Kong, Shenzhen, London, Sydney or Melbourne vs suburbs

The Axeman part though makes me thing we're going to the s hitters. How even did that happen? Poor schoolmate.

You could always migrate and let a ceca take your place. Or you could vote for change. Otherwise shut up and get back to the grind!

I'm somewhat persuaded by your argument even if its said in jest, the government negotiators really got blindsided by their Indian counterparts. They got the professional jobs here and we get, nada. For all you know CECA may be expanded to include lawyers too if our population keeps decreasing.

://.singaporelawwatch.sg/Headlines/legal-service-may-be-restructured-for-greater-specialisation

Shan seems to suggest there's a shortage of lawyers. 6000 for a resident pop of 6million (actually about 5.6m), 0.1%. I guess that's quite underlawyered compared to other advanced economies

Then how come our pay so shi tty and grads cannot find TCs? Will law become like medicine where residents can't get jobs as consultants but they keep importing indian and FT doctors year after year?

Hundreds of billions spent (wasted?) on support packages funded by increasing GST to 9% and sky-high HDB prices. Using taxpayer money to sustain dying or zombie businesses to meet KPIs because of lockdown directly related to lax immigration policies.
