Will Singapore always able to prevent big business from influencing government? I doubt it. We will not allow it to imitate the forms that has occurred in other governments, but it will eventually happen. May be it is more accurate to say that it has when government almost consistently vote on the side of business with a naive assumption that what is good for business is good for everyone.
Time has passed sufficiently to show that the trickle down effect of wealth has not occurred here as well as elsewhere.
