Govt policies must be sensible, reasonable, focused and responsible

Many people have heard the reasoning for the big water fee hike and the logic being aired in Parliament and many are shaking their heads in disbelief. Do the ministers really believe they are convincing in their arguments and the people are really so daft to accept the reasoning. We have a highly educated population, more than 50% have received tertiary education and any farcical, flimsy or flawed arguments would stand up like a sore thumb. Ministers must be careful and not stand out looking like fools with foolish arguments and thinking they could get away with them.

Just read this piece of statement saying that ‘Water prices were increased substantially to reflect its true scarcity value’ by Masagos. Using the same logic, should not the govt raise the salaries of ministers substantially to reflect its true scarcity value? The scarcity of good political leaders is frightening and a strategic issue, a national security issue too. I just borrow some of the phrases used in Parliament to depict how serious the matter is.

Yes pay the really good minister $10m or more, but this must be done discriminately not like the carpet bombing price of water fee that hit everyone so hard. Some ministers deserved $10m, some not even $100k.  In the case of water, the pricing must be carefully calibrated to be reasonable and sensible and responsible.

Water is a basic necessity and is a must use item by everyone, from the richest to the poorest. And in some cases the poorest need to use more water than the richest. A manual worker would need to bath more and wash more given the nature of his work. A multi millionaire could bathe in perfume or Evian water or no need to bath as he rarely need to sweat under the hot sun. The bedridden would need to be clean. Everyone needs to take their bath in this hold tropical city. Everyone, rich or poor, needs to shit and flush the toilet. How can such acts be punished by high water fees? Don’t bathe, don’t shit, don’t wash and don’t flush?

What is reasonable and sensible is to allocate a fix quantity of water to every individual/household, regardless of wealth, maybe a bit more to the workers, to clean themselves, for personal hygiene. Water is a basic necessity and should be priced as such. Then the axe can come down to bear on those that over used, misused and abused, those that could not appreciate this precious item. Using water reasonably for basic needs must not and cannot be punished with an across the board price hike. Levy progressive and punitive taxes on over usage of water. And I quote Masagos again, ‘Consumers must feel the full price of water’. The difference is that the axe must not be used indiscriminately against everyone.  Not all consumers waste water irresponsibly. Many are actively and responsibly cutting down on their water usage. Why should they also be punished?  If an axe is swung wildly like a mad man, it discredits the person wielding the axe as a mad man, thoughtless and unreasonable.

I do not want to belabour this point. It is common sense. Please be reasonable, be sensible, be focused and be responsible and raise water fees in a calibrated and thoughtful way.  Think a little more. Anyone behaving like a bull in a crystal shop will look like a stubborn and mindless raging bull. No one would respect a mad bull ramming and knocking down everything in its way.

No need to use phrases like scarce resources, strategic issues, national security issue to pull a veil over a flawed pricing policy. It defeats everything being said.

When they want to increase the cost of something, they will find one hundred and one reasons to justify it, most are bullshit anyway. They know it and we know it. I have not heard of a really good justification from our super high pay ministers. One say something and the rest just add on. Its the magic work of the Party Whip!

Agreed with your comment about asking the govt to consider raising the
salaries of ministers substantially to reflect its true scarcity value,
like water!

The base salary of our ministers should be at least $1,000.000 per MONTH,
not per year!

We can afford! We can afford!

Yes! Must consider this suggestion seriously!

Like the chinese saying goes.......小财不出大财不入!

So..........just pay just pay!

Cheers!

Talking or feedback to these whites men & women r useless now. They already made up their mind to hike the only H2O that we need, what's more can a commoners do now. Even going to some of public toilet u have to pay also, nothing is free here..sooner or later once u step out of ur house u gonna charge left right & centre ( air consumption tax, satellite usage tax etc..). There is no point highlighting to these miws monies-suckers as they all group-think to fleece on commoners...there r people who rent away their whole unit & live in Changi Airport in nite & stay in library in day just to survive on rent..

Apparently, SOMEBOLEE never hear (or read about) modern Economics FOUNDING FATHER Adam Smith's economic analyses on the "worthlessness" of water in the Water-Diamond Paradox in his explanation of the concept of scarcity in Adam Smith's magnus opus: "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations" published in 1776 ......?

Do you think this is the problem?

PAP government wants to build more Newater and or desalination plants.
The cost of water from such sources is expensive.

But why do we need to build more Newater and or desalination plants?
Because we need more water to support LHL's population target of 6.9 or even 10 million people.

QUESTION
---------
How many other price increases are coming after this water price increase?
How many of these future price increases is due to the PAP-LHL's popultaion target of 6.9 million?

Rb //Just read this piece of statement saying that ‘Water prices were increased substantially to reflect its true scarcity value’ by Masagos. //


The following are quotes from Adam Smith's magnum opus "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations" when he explained the concept of "Scarcity". This is what Adam Smith (the founding father of modern Economics) said about scarcity of water:

Quote

"What are the rules which men naturally observe in exchanging them [goods] for money or for one another, I shall now proceed to examine. These rules determine what may be called the relative or exchangeable value of goods. The word VALUE, it is to be observed, has two different meanings, and sometimes expresses the utility of some particular object, and sometimes the power of purchasing other goods which the possession of that object conveys. The one may be called "value in use;" the other, "value in exchange." The things which have the greatest value in use have frequently little or no value in exchange; on the contrary, those which have the greatest value in exchange have frequently little or no value in use. Nothing is more useful than water: but it will purchase scarcely anything; scarcely anything can be had in exchange for it. A diamond, on the contrary, has scarcely any use-value; but a very great quantity of other goods may frequently be had in exchange for it."

Unquote

Apparently, is not or rather was not Adam Smith saying water is "NOT SCARCE" and therefore almost worthless?

So who is correct?

The founding father of modern Economics Adam Smith?

Or the "highly trained economist" RB quoted?

Who is right about the scarcity of water or rather the relative non-scarcity of water?

The water increase 30% has 2 official versions on reasons: one. to support sustainable investment. two. cannot disclose huge losses in pub for commercial sensitivities reason.
In short, my interpretation is huge cash losses and lagi big big huge losses in future. When consider the huge losses in line with the huge increase in population from current 5.8millions to 7millions and to 10 millions, i strongly urge parents with kids at 10 year old and above to vote for opposition. It was Png WP suggested huge losses and one ministar told the house sensitive part cannot touch.

Parents with young children must think, can their children survive in the ill thought population policy? Just yesterday, I read a child sex lover got 4 yrs free lunch. To my shock, he was said to have been featured in "Contact Singapore" as a "advocate story" success story: living in singapore was so easy, according to this easy child sex man. More are in ass which shocked me.

The problems for water and child sex are the same. Why? one way street to death early. Water increase will help commercial firms to increase products prices. This is 100% sure like sun raising from the east. Commercial firms use a lot of water in product processing. Hitting 30% will increase their cost. Electricity is the main one and already increased so water increase provides another surge in prices. This time will cover ALL products, raw vege, fish, to cooked foods and coffee shops, mall rentals, cleaning companies etc.
Child sex comes in because of the quality of population. The poor quality of such child sex person was featured in official story. Can u imagine the quality of the writers?
There was no security screening up to the days this child sex man on trial in court. The article said it was still at web site. So naive, or so raw in security to prevent damage to state reputation?

If we go along this line, we know this team of leeders are too relax or lacking sophistication to manage state affairs, paramount is security. These increase water tax is like to use to build more distillation plants: my wild guess is Malaysia may cut off the remaining water contract sooner than 2060. I guess from the current water level of what Johor can afford.

Once the water supply is cut off from Malaysia, singapore will only depend on their own re cycle water to survive. Singapore is known to cocky in foreign policy siding US. The one sleep on the biggest land mass with thousands of missiles are certainly not aiming at US facility in Singapore because the PLA are scared of Singapore after the Terex. The big shot put it both china and singapore were very careful to handle Terex affair. Yah it was like handling nuclear fuse. Not careful Singapore might shoot at them. Similarly, if PLA shoot at the water plants to give warning to leeders, without Malaysia supply, its the ending for Singapore to become syonan part 2.
Parents with children at 10 or above, the future is bleak under the current leeders. We need change decisively to reverse the population of getting people foreigners to harm us born in Singapore. Look carefully, these foreigners of different culture thinking sex to young children was joy and not sin. These are who in foreign talents. They should be given the task to protect singapore? No, they are given the jobs to enjoy child sex. And the water here. Change in voters mind sets is only way to save children s future.

The Madness in the Political Leadership of Singapore - Part 15

The Madness of Simply Vomitting Irrelevent Excuses to Replace Blatant Callous Irresponsibility

Well done, Redbean! Very well said!

If Singapore's self-enriching ministers only have a fraction of your compassion and common sense, Singaporeans would enjoy a better and happier life for sure. The days of compassion in the heart of Singapore's political leadership are gone for good. Similar to someone stating in Parliament that the Civil Service has become robotic with the use of technology, the self-enriching multi-millionaire ministers have not only lost their heart and soul, but their brains have also gone twisted and mad.

Whatever reasons put forth by morons to justify the unreasonable, unjustifiable, unsubstantiable, unconvincible, untenable and blatantly, callously irresponsible position of such a sudden and huge increase in the price of a basic essential life-supporting need such as water, cannot and must not be accepted by anyone in Singapore, locals and foreigners alike, employees and employers alike, businesses and non-businesses alike - the whole society, the whole country!

This arrogant, blatant, ostrich-mentality type of irresponsibility of across-the-board huge and sudden increase of water prices only confirms my assertion regarding the "Madness in the Political Leadership of Singapore".

This is sheer madness caused by too much power in the hands of a few elites and their minions, too much money paid to them to do their jobs, too much lee-way given to those in authorities over others lives, too much greed that infects and renders mindless those who are supposed to be sane, reasonable, sensible, compassionate, caring and responsible.

The fact that this issue can get this far is a clear signal that the 'System' implanted by the Old Guards has started to stumble. It is no longer the 'System' Singaporeans have come to know and embrace. It has become a system that harms rather than love; a system that bull-doze its way rather than consensus-building; a system that no one in the world are willing to trust their lives in its hands.....

It is time for Singaporeans to get rid of those in leadership positions who have no qualms to harm them instead of love them, before it is too late!

With Divine's Will wiling, millions of Singaporeans may start to curse the one who has proposed this unreasonable, irresponsible, insensible huge and sudden increase in water, the basic essential life-supporting need for everyone. With the millions of curses cast every day and night, the next stroke would most probably be an unrecoverable fatal one!

May God have Mercy upon All of us!

I think the price increase will affect the cost of massage too. Each girl takes about 10 customers a day and each customer has to bathe twice, once before and once after the service so it's like 20 people bathe there each day. Likely the cost will be passed to the customers in due course.

We would like to make representation to the government though we doubt they would listen.

Hi Dragon Fly, my name has a little variation from 真龙. Need to add gold 金 beside 真 to become ‘金真’ or town. Couldn't find the word in the translation here.

Michael Ho's massage business will make more money by taking advantage to the 30% increase in water price. Look at the bright side. Kopitiams and hawker stalls are all quietly congratulating themselves for the bonus coming their way.

The fat cats have been trying very hard to increase their already out-of-this-world pay, as hinted by DPM Teo Chee Hean in the last budget debate (2016). However, there was a hue and cry against his statements.

So, now they have found a way around it: Increase water price by 30% and all other things will have to be increased by 30% or more. Some self-deceiving idiots in the form of ministers tried to convince the public that businesses have been told not to increase their prices. Sheer talking nonsense.

Business is business, not charitable organizations or government agencies. They need to make enough money to survive and some profits to make it worth their while to take business risks and all the -they put it, isn't it? These ministers think the public is stupid or they are trying to follow in the footsteps of North Korea's President?

These fat cats have converted their easy $millions into assets and sideline businesses. When water, basic essential necessity, goes up by 30% in price, their assets will also go up by 30% more or less.

Cunning bastards, public gave them money to study and come back to help the people, instead they become scholars in order to help their own bank accounts and their cronies and minions.

The worst to swallow is that they are trying to cover up their personal greedy intent by using all sorts of excuses. That is why all their reasoning do not gel at all.

They simply cannot defend the fact that 30% is an extremely high proportion to increase for a basic essential commodity and also after 17 years on non-increase, why all of a sudden they slap a hefty 30% instead of 2% or 3%, and gradually increase year by year of 2% or 3%?
