Secrets of Singapore's success - Compulsory
Make it compulsory Stanley Jeremiah, a chartered insurer, suggested that with the high cost of medical bills, it is desirable to have compulsory medical insurance coverage. Hmmm, we are going to have compulsory annuity insurance, now this. Actually not a bad idea. It is good for the people and will protect them when it hits them. And with legal fees getting higher and higher, we should also make it compulsory for people to buy legal insurance in case they got into a lawsuit. Make it compulsory for people who keep killer dogs also. What does compulsory means? It means your money is not your money. People can just legislate it away and make you buy things or spend your money on things that you do not need or want. Other people will decide how you spend your money. Means Testing is not much difference. You must spend your money. This is another great secret to Singapore's success.
