The Rhetoric

“A worker in Singapore will cost $1000 per month or more, but there is a bountiful stream of workers in China who will gladly work for $100 per month … that is why we should lower our wage costs.”
Labour chief Lim Boon Heng, Straits Times, June 17 2002

The Reality

“Singapore ninth most expensive city in the world.”
Economic Intelligence Unit, Jan 2001
