Hillary Clinton to China...the relevance to Singapore
Yes, if we refuse to grow, like the Chinese are doing (more like they want to grow some parts of their body but not others) Hillary Clinton is right.
I hope what we are trying to do is realize Obama's version of government even when he was a senator and tried unsuccessfully when he became president. MM and SM had built a foundation for us to build from to achieve a local version of open government.
So we move from being a Cray supercomputer to becoming massively parallel. We don't grow this way, our government will remain clueless about the future like it had in the last few years. The world becomes more complex, and using new organizational strategies and the Internet infrastructure, going "massively parallel" is how we can adapt and overcome our challenges successfully. In fact, it is the smart way going forward to have a better and more interesting lives for our children.
If we succeed at pulling this off, we will enhance our relevance to America and China furthering our security and prosperity. With MM presence, nobody from here can emerge as a giant who will make and fill his or her giant shoes.
May be Obama will come and take a look at how we do it and bring it back to pressure his government. Provided we succeed. We need to recreate the Singapore brand.
