Politicians and Policy Makers
Politicians usually make lousy policy makers and vice-versa. Singapore has opted for using policy makers as politicians and making it hard for natural politicians to arise from other quarters. It works very well before but strains is showing and there is greater unhappiness. The work of government is getting harder as a result. May be we should think about how we might change course before it is too late.
