Looks like Facebook's Edwardo Saverin saw something in this place that caused him to move from the USA.

I’ve been to Singapore a few times and connected thru Changi airport more than a few times. Singapore’s a very comfortable place but 100% antiseptic, i.e., it lacks variety and fun, IMHO.

I agree its outlook is excellent and it could well achieve the #1 spot envisioned by 2050 but that assumes it never gets a leader like Barackski Hosaana Obama.

Singaporeans aren't reproducing nor should anyone think its some beacon of freedom.

Singapore has national service, the media is state controlled, no free speech, no right to assemble, large Gov't subsidies in food and land, and other various tools for a police state.
