Singapore Budget 2017

budget

America’s budget has boosted its military spending and sharply reduced foreign aid. There will be repercussions globally. Does the Singapore 2017 budget deal enough with international pressures or is it more a populist budget dealing with bread and butter issues? Or is it a post-election surplus budget (Leon Pereira)? Does it ready our economy for the future? Does it ready our people for the future? Does it incorporate a spirit of caring and resilience? Is it fiscally sustainable? Or part of a political cycle before we have a pre-election deficit budget with goodies?
