SDP's Alternatives: Economy
20 November 2010
The Singapore Democrats officially launched its economic manifesto at the pre-election rally in 2010. Entitled It's About You, this publication is a comprehensive and detailed account of the SDP's proposals to take Singapore forward.
This report deals with a wide range of economic problems that Singaporeans encounter from healthcare cost to income inequality, from the inadequacy of CPF funds to the exploitative wage system.
Our biggest contention is the widening disparity between the super-rich in this country and middle- and lower income groups. Such a trend is both unhealthy and unsustainable for our country. It is an economic structure that exploits rather than inspires.
