Sin City has peaked



Sin City has reached new heights in many things and it is looking like hitting its peak. Many things just cannot go up anymore or at its last leg, another last hike and that is about all.

Top on the list is income of political leaders. Raising this will bring about grave consequences or angry disapproval for sure. Housing prices are still going up, but for how long, when the income level is not going up except for those living in the stratosphere? COE and car prices are peaking at the same time.

Population, there are two major school of thoughts. The super talented will tell you that 20m is ‘sup sup suey’. The lay people will not want any of it and rather stay at this level. Unbelieveable that birth rate is at a record low of 1.2 percent and population is growing exponentially. I personally think that the capacity to support people in this piece of rock is reaching its peak and optimum level. Anything more is madness. How many of the unthinking would go along with this madness is frightening.

The talent pool for political office is drying up or peaking as well. Every batch the quality is not getting betterer than the previous batch. And many bright young professionals are not coming home and the talent pool for political office will now have to come from the newly minted citizens whose credentials are suspect, whose certificates and qualifications need to be scan under a microscope.

The land for use is also peaking and the only way out is to demolish and rebuild higher and higher. Roads and rails capacity are also peaking as well. Is there really any more room for growth at the rate the land is being used up?

Even the number of straight A students for PSLE, A and O level are peaking and if not stop, every student will be getting straight As.

Rentals, medical fees, cost of living are also peaking and the strain on the people is showing. Hospital and medical services are at a peak that no one even realized. Someone with a toothache will be given an appointment 6 mths down the road. His immediate pain is hopefully taken care off some time down the road, like Natcon.

MRT capacity is definitely at its peak level. The next challenge is to be as world class as Tokyo in terms of passenger per train car.

The only thing that is not peaking is probably the number of millionaires. There are 800,000 HDB flat dwellers waiting to become millionaires. This would be the last peak I think. Oh, I miss out another major peak, with a lot of room to grow. Don’t forget the minimum sums in the CPF savings. These still got a long way to peak. Did anyone whisper ERPs and GST?

Fengshui reminds other that the wheel of fortune will continue to turn. When we reach the peak, the natural thing to happen is DOWN. You can delay it but you cannot avoid. Look at America and Europe? Are we ready for it? How many will remain in Singapore when it comes?

Yes erp, gst and minimum sum are still far from peak

RB...think you are wrong...some has peaked so they furtively hide all their gotten gains (ill??) overseas..I don't hear collective gasps and throes of orgasm from the population in general. It will come but unfortunately it will be in the form both you and I will be totally unfamiliar with. Can it happen in Singapore??? Betcha!!!!! Then...you will see the mother of all peaks!!!!

AS our Finance Minister had said earlier this year that he needs to find way to collect more taxes. So this is his way of doing it.What they give you on one hand , they take back more with the other hand.
What percentage of the HDB owners are renting out their HDB? It it is a small percentage , then by increasing the owner occuppied property tax they will be penalised.

The most dangerous peak is talent for political leadership. It is there for all to see.

And jjgg, I have printed some catalogues of my exhibition. Anyone wants a copy can email me your address.

Cheers.

When all have peaked, you can guess the next direction it will go. Even the FT had peaked except that the babies of Singaporean have not, Lah. How much more Sinkies are made to go through this bad patch?????

Political talent peaked decades ago with the introduction by LKY of the mandarin system of governance. No prizes for guessing who is the main beneficiary.

Contrary to what you wrote numbers of millionaire will also peak if one keep buying Toto and Big Sweep.
And becos of stress you forgot to mention that many pitiful charbor fail to reach their peak...

Nonsense lah. There is still room for increases.

The population can grow,as well as real estate prices.

It's not even close to "peaking".

Raise your standards lah.

What ? Majority not happy with unreasonable rob-you-like scam ? No worry for govt, just release more sex cases to entertain you and divert your unhappiness in ShittyTimes and state media . It always works as Singaporeans always have short memories.

A lot has peaked and some will never peak, liked as said by Chin Leng and others. Amongst them ERP, COE, GST, MEDICAL, EDUCATION, TRANPORRATION, TOBACCO TAX AND SERVICE CHARGES.

ANOTHER ITEM THAT HAS NOT PEAK IS THE ANGST OF THE PEOPLE. THE TOLERANCE HAS A LONG WAY TO PEAK.

M_S is right, Sin has a long way to go.

The first "peak" will be around the 9 million people mark for population.

I predict BIG infrastructure changes at this point in order to assure safe margin of redundancy and abundance, and to ensure that things move along smoothly with good security...At 9 million mark the infrastructure will be several magnitudes more COMPLEX, and energy-hungry.

...then the next peak will be around 15 million.

By then you'll see some buildings reach 1 km, perhaps more. The infrastructure will be highly complex, and it had better be robust as well with lots of abundant capacity and redundancy.

Use your imaginations lah. If you don't, your cuntree will have to employ more "creative" FT's to do the imagining for you. Change that shit, now!

Peak or no peak.
under PAP rule.
You got benefit or not?

Even if Singapore Reserves got $100 trillion dollars in cash.
You think Singaporean citizen will benefit or not?

It is peak only when the old man dies.

Hahaha

Don't forget about our Football Team hor. They still have not peaked yet for the World Cup, even though Goal 2010 is long gone past them.

And we are still waiting for the 'SWISH' standard of living to happen when we reach the peak. Or should I say just a 'peek' into the future of red dot.
