'The illusion of higher income' Singapore is the only place in the whole world where the Govt has to help the middle income and higher income groups of people. What? Higher income people need govt help? Now what is wrong with that? Or are these higher income earners only higher income in name sake but actually poor like hell? Cannot make ends meet, and constantly juggling their finances to make sure that they can get by? I would have thought that once a person becomes higher income earner, he should be in a very comfortable position, to live well and enjoy life, not waiting for govt assistance.
