Inside Cabinet... it's no wayang
However Singapore can still do very well for a while. Very often you don't need to have the best ideas to be exceptional. In fact such winning ideas are losers if you cannot execute. Great businesses outside Tech industries are often built on simple ideas with first class execution and afterward brand investment and promotion. This is what I believe Singapore is trying to achieve. Sadly, steering the ship of state does not fall into the simple businesses that is so beloved by Warren Buffett. Fellow citizens, Singapore needs lots of luck! It would be cleverer to have a inner sanctum of absolutely brilliant leaders numbering not more than three or four. Consensus among almost twenty ministers is an oxymoron.
From the article,
My take? I am no longer a twenty something year old to be persuaded on the above. Life just isn't so simple or idealistic. Are you telling me that these guys have no egos? Of course there is wayang, it is just much more subtle and all subterranean.
