What kind of talents are we really getting and retaining? I don't think our ministers are talented. They are efficient task managers but when it comes to politics they don't seem to have a clue on how to engage our citizens.

They are not talented creators who come out with unique systems that balances economy and social concerns. They always give the inevitability of globalisation without thinking of a solution. Status quo is good for them because it really doesn't affect them that much.

How to make profits in the company?? Cut cost. How to do that?? Pay the labourers peanuts so the bottom line looks good. When the bottom line looks good cream it off for yourselves as performance bonus. Seems like Singapore is almost addicted to this style of management. Perhaps the world is also doing that. GST for the poor or the rich I wonder? To me that is interest free loan from the citizens of Singapore.

Coming back to talent, the singapore ministers lack the communications skills. They are not talented politicians because they never have to sell an idea to the singaporeans. All they need to do is to annouce the change and put up a wayang debate. The debate is given limited coverage and often issues are not properly addressed due to time constrains. There is a lack of sincerity in the debate but what is new? I can only say that our government lacks opposition to sharpen their skills. They get away with reasoning that a simple peasant like me can see the faults of the argument. As lucky tan would say, they have a superior logic that only the elites can understand.

So really what kind of talent are we attracting and looking at?
