Monkeys or digits?

The Rhetoric

“We must always remember that workers are not simply factors of production or economic digits. Workers are human beings.”
DPM Tony Tan, Straits Times, Aug 4 2003

The Reality

“Be like a monkey. When things happen, you have to be nimble. Take advantage of opportunities, don’t be cast down, but rise to the challenge if it does occur.”
DPM Tony Tan in report “Singaporeans urged to act like monkeys”, AP, 26 Jan 2004
