Fatuous lust for foreign talents
Thou shalt not cast lusting glances at thy neighbour's talents. But if we do not do so then soon we will sink into the Straits of Singapore. In an island where there is a dearth of talents, only with the influx of foreign talents can we ever think of making it to the next generation. And this must keep going and going. While will are lusting at the foreign talents of other countries, now India is making us an offer that we cannot resist. They are willing to sacrifice their talents for us. They are saying, please take more of our talents. With this offer, all our local banks and GLCs will have no problem filling up all the MD positions. What India should propose is to swap their political talents with ours. One of our political talent for 100 of India's political talents. That should be a reasonable equation given the fact that our political talents are world best. And we can even expand our Parliament, providing more quality jobs for politicians. Make politicians and politiking a profession, with good salary, annual increments, route of advancement, promotion, and of course pension for life. When this is put in place, we will have the best politicians the world can find. Then we can do what India is doing, exporting our political talent to boost our GDP.
