Comparative advantage of a FT in Sin
Sinkieland is not only a paradise, a Disneyland to the FTs. It is a gold mine, like the gold mountain of California in the early 20th Century. Every poor peasant would risk life and limbs to go the beautiful country called America. Singapore is everything a FT can ask for, especially those from the third world countries when the comparative advantage is simply too good and too many. In America of old, they were exploited, discriminated, the govt and system were hostile to foreigners. In Sin, the foreigners were welcomed with open arms, govt budgeting funds to help them to assimilate to the new environment and people. The govt treats foreigners even better than the locals. Many came for top jobs, replacing the locals with full blessings from the govt, as foreign talents. What more do the foreigners want?
Take the cost of bringing up and educating a Sinkie here compare to those from the third world, the latter costs nearly a pittance to the millions needed to bring up a child. The cost here ends up with every child a losing concern. For a FT from a third world, it is big profits, plus exchange rate advantage, the return is unimaginable.
And the education of a child, the education system and infrastructure there and here, a Sinkie child will be given the best in education, but the sickening thing is that they are found not good enough compare to a third world product who could even be bossing him all over. The straight As that our students are getting must be fictitious that even our employers, both private and govt, don’t see them any up. Someone or the employers must be thinking that the grades are all fixed up while the grades of third world products are genuinely good, excluding the fake degrees that are not discovered.
The third world FTs are here for an upgrading, upgrading everything, from lifestyle, housing, income, jobs, status etc etc, it is all one way, up. The natives or Sinkies are also one way, down, except for the rich and powerful. Sinkies are downgrading in everything, in income, in lifestyle, from car ownership to public transport, from good paying jobs to driving taxis or as self employed agents, from landed properties to non landed properties, from bigger flats to smaller flats, from managing foreigners to being managed by foreigners, from renting rooms to foreigners to renting rooms from foreigners, from employing foreigners to begging to be employed by foreigners, from defending our country to defending foreigners. And people on the streets, from being kind to foreigners to being beaten by foreigners.
