Singapore: new haven for the rich

Singapore: new haven for the rich

Singapore has seen its image get a glamorous makeover in recent years, leading it to become a destination for the world's ultra rich.

Asia set to house world's super-rich

The rich are getting richer - and more of the world's top earners will be coming from Asia, a survey has found.

What I learnt about inequality after spending time with some of the richest people in the world

Wealth has dehumanised them, and there's nothing they can do about it.

So what are the super-rich: are they bastards? Are they, as Hemingway put it, just like us, but with "more money”? Are they going to save us? Destroy us? Are they corporate psychopaths who've channelled their murderous impulses into making money, not serial killing? Or are they lonely and needing love, but trapped in a gilded cage of Bentleys and Lear Jets?
No, none of the above. I spent 6 months with them for a show I made for the BBC, called The Super-Rich and Us. I travelled to various castles and penthouses all over the world. I was greeted by sportswear multi-millionaire Sir Tom Hunter in his vast manicured grounds with “Hello! My favourite champagne Socialist!” (a little more champagne and less socialist, thanks very much).
I went to The Dorchester to meet Wang Jianlin, China's richest man, who pretends he doesn't understand English when he's bored. He was off to see someone called Boris after me, who wants to flog him half of London, and then some bloke called David, who runs the country. That's what happens when you're worth a modest $21.4bn.

So what did I learn from spending so much time with the super-wealthy? They're fast becoming a breed apart. And this isn't a lazy use of the term "breed apart" - it's both biologically and psychologically accurate. It's their self-willed destiny.
The super-rich believe that they're Masters Of The Universe, and the facts seem to bear them out. They hold power in that quiet understated way Sun Tzu defined as “the one who doesn't speak in a room. He's the one who holds all the cards”.

This gives them something they can't help: an intolerance for weakness. Even the most self-avowed Bill Gatesian liberal and philanthropic billionaire, paying for libraries and vaccine programs in Africa, can't quite comprehend why everyone on Earth isn't as determined to be as successful as they are. If they're not - goddamn it, I'm going to show them how.

This go-getting, sink or swim mantra of the super-rich is accepted by the Government. It's even taught in schools. But not everyone can be an entrepreneur – it's the reason people across Europe have been marching. They're not just protesting against austerity, but also reaffirming their humanity. In Athens they chanted "we are human", as if the troika and super-rich actually needed reminding.
What began as a global tribe simply making money has transmuted into biological difference. The rich now live in their own Elysium-style biosphere. It's a floating bubble high above Earth, connecting London to New York to Shanghai to Dubai via a chrome Business Class tube in the sky.

Whether they're in their private jets, helicopters, or penthouse suites, they occupy a space that mere mortals like us can only squint at from street level. Their separation makes it easier for them to accept the inequality of which they're a part - and puts them literally out of reach.

In this biosphere, they eat better food, go to better schools, wear better clothes, take better medicine, and thus breed a cleaner, richer tribe. They even breathe cleaner air. Several billionaires have their own mobile air supplies, which are pumped into whatever home they've decided to stay at. If you have a property in Shanghai, for example, being super-wealthy allows you to avoid having the same smog-filled lungs as the rest of the city’s 14m inhabitants.
If you visit this Elysium, as I did, you'll realise that inequality is not about money, but an idea of wealth-engineered eugenics. In their minds, they are not only richer than the rest of us, but also “better”.

And the word “better” is important, because the fallacy of moral improvement that comes with money has been used to justify inequality. The rich sincerely believe it, and they want us to sincerely believe it too, and guess what? We do. If we don't achieve the unachievable, we've failed. It's a rigged game.

The rich aren't evil, though. They're avatars for inequality, but with a shred of humanity inside of them – a ghost in the machine – that wants to reconnect with the rest of society.
I asked multi-millionaire Tony Fernandes what he was doing after I interviewed him. “Making beans on toast for the kids”. He is so rich, he's come out the other side, and eschews the trappings of luxury for ersatz reality.
But then I spoke to the Phones 4 U billionaire, John Caudwell, who showed me his plans for a giant subterranean Bat Cave he wants to build — it was empty, apart from one tiny gold-plated figure at the centre. “That's me,” he said. And do you know what? I felt sorry for him. A bit.

No matter how hard they try, the super-rich live in a hermetically enclosed bubble. Seeing the way they lived made me think of an Ebola patient in a highly pampered quarantine, staring at the outside world. They feel like they should be part of it, but spend their lives unconvincingly parodying the things ordinary people do. Their wealth has made them suspicious and distant. It has dehumanised them, and there's nothing they can do about it.

That is their tragedy. But it's not quite on a par with the tragedy of a mum juggling eight jobs on zero hours contracts. So boo hoo, you might say.

We should pity their separation from the 99 per cent. But not too much - when the next crash happens, let's not use quantitative easing and the bail-out to super-charge inequality further. Pity democracy, pity people, but don't pity those with too much money.

Lived with a billionaire once ( lite, he was only worth 2b poor chap.) and discovered that his overall life style was no different to mine in almost every way. Sure he owned multiple Ferraris and had a private jet and Yacht ( seldom used ) but in the every day his car was similar to my car . His clothes ( all ) were similar to mine and so too the food he ate or the restaurants he went to while. He made big deals and feared his competitors and that he would lose large amounts . I made deals and feared I would lose small amounts . He was in terrible physical shape where I was and am in great shape. The point is that in a democracy despite the great differences in bank balance your actual life style is incredibly similar from the underpants you wear to the food you eat. He is hitting the glass ceiling but I can see the ceiling even though I have no chance ( or want to ) ever get near to it .

Poverty in Singapore reached worst ever, jumped 43.45% in 3 years

April 22, 2017

In the latest statistics provided by the Ministry of Social and Family Affairs (MSF), families living in poverty and relying on ComCare assistance jumped 43.45% in the three years between 2012 and 2015, from 20,572 families to 29,511 families. No statistic was given for 2016, but this is the worst poverty result ever officially reported in Singapore.

Elderly above the age of 60 are the most afflicted with a 74.32% jump. This is largely due to the low interest rate and new government restrictions on withdrawal of CPF retirement money.

Graphic from Straits Times

Poverty among younger Singaporeans – aged between 15 and 34 – has also worsened with 41,500 earning below S$1,000 a month as of June 2016. Unemployment rate is 5% for Singaporeans under the age of 30, double that of other age group according to the Ministry of Manpower.

Despite growing poverty, the Singapore ruling party government enjoy higher popularity ratings among Singaporeans. The country’s most recent general elections saw the ruling party winning with a 69.9% majority. There is no Minimum Wage and low income jobs, except for construction workers and domestic helpers, are largely taken by Singaporeans. Well-paid PMET jobs are taken up foreign degree holders, many of whom are fresh graduates from India and China.

Facts About Poverty in Singapore

  1. Poverty in Singapore suffers from a lack of visibility Singapore is one of the wealthiest and most well-developed countries in the world, and this is often the side that is seen and thought of. This makes Singapore’s poverty difficult to see for anyone not living in the country.
  2. Singapore has a large inequality gap Singapore has the most millionaires in the world, but also has one of the largest inequality gaps in advanced Asian countries, placing second on the list.
  3. 10 to 14 percent of Singaporeans face severe poverty Ten to 14 percent of Singaporeans struggle with severe financial issues. These Singaporeans have difficulty affording their basic needs, with hunger being one of the largest factors.
  4. Poverty is an increasing problem in Singapore Poverty in Singapore is growing worse with each year. From 2012 to 2015, impoverished families relying on government assistance increased by approximately 43 percent.
  5. Poverty is an issue for the elderly Elderly Singaporeans are the group most affected by poverty. In the same timeframe of 2012 to 2015, the number of impoverished people over 60 years of age relying on government assistance increased by approximately 74 percent. This is mainly attributed to government restrictions on withdrawing retirement funds.
  6. Poverty is also an issue for the young Singaporeans between the ages of 15 and 34 years of age are the second most affected group. This is mainly caused by low-paying entry-level jobs and a lack of minimum wage laws. In addition, many young Singaporeans struggle to find a job at all, with approximately 5 percent being unemployed.
  7. Many people are trapped in poverty Singaporeans born into poverty, especially those from more recent generations, are more likely to stay in poverty even as adults. Those born into more financially well-off families tend to have more success.
  8. Government assistance is not enough The government provides financial aid to any family making less than $1,900 a month. The government also provides aid in other forms such as making education more affordable, tax exemptions for impoverished families and more affordable housing. Yet, impoverished families continue to struggle, and assistance does not seem to be alleviating the growing issue of poverty in the country.
  9. As poverty grows, so does the popularity of the ruling party Although the issue of poverty in Singapore is worsening at a steady rate, the ruling party in the country is growing in popularity and continuing to win general elections. Many believe that the current party is not doing enough to address the issue.
  10. Singapore receives little foreign aid Foreign aid for Singapore has dropped significantly since the mid-1990s, and it receives only miniscule amounts from countries like the U.S. compared to what others are receiving. Even then, the majority of foreign aid that goes to Singapore does not focus directly on poverty issues, and instead on the country’s trade and economy. This lack of aid may be partially due to how hidden much of the poverty in Singapore seems to be.

  1. Although a growing problem, poverty in Singapore remains in the background of the country’s financial successes and development. Because the issue often goes unnoticed by other countries, little aid is being provided, allowing poverty to grow and spread, affecting a variety of Singaporeans in many ways.

you need to know about Ponzi scams

Nearly one million investors may have been fleeced in China's latest Ponzi scheme, which over the weekend saw 21 executives from its biggest peer-to-peer money lending platform being arrested on suspicion of stealing 50 billion yuan (S$10.8 billion).

The police allege that the senior management of Ezubao had stolen that much money from 900,000 investors nationwide, which would make it China's largest-ever case of investor fraud, by both cash value and the number of victims.

By number of victims, it would be the largest Ponzi scheme in the world.

Here's what you need to know about Ponzi scams:

What is a Ponzi scheme?

A fraudulent investment scam promising high rates of return with little risk to investors. The Ponzi scheme generates returns for older investors by using the cash from new investors. Such scams actually yield the promised returns to earlier investors, as long as there are more new investors.
But they eventually collapse on themselves when the new investments slow or stop.

Who is the scheme named after?

One Charles Ponzi, a clerk in Boston, who did not invent the scheme that came to bear his name, but whose scam fooled so many people and made him so much money that it brought the such a scheme into the national spotlight for the first time.
In 1919, the Italian immigrant duped thousands of investors, promising them a whopping 50 per cent return in 45 days, or 100 per cent in 90 days on international postal coupons, which he never actually purchased. The international reply coupons from other countries were supposed to be redeemable in the US for postage stamps, with the profit coming from the difference in prices between countries.
A steady flow of new investors initially allowed Ponzi to pay existing investors, while pocketing millions of dollars himself.
But soon enough, the scheme began to raise eyebrows because there were not sufficient international reply coupons for his investment plan to work. It collapsed, bringing six banks down with it. Collectively, his investors lost an estimated US$20 million - equal to US$222 million (S$416 million) in today's money.
Ponzi went to prison for several years but after his release, he launched another scheme where he sold real estate that was literally underwater. He was jailed yet again and ultimately died penniless in Brazil, working as a translator.

Is a Ponzi scheme the same as a pyramid scheme?

They are similar in that both are based on using money from new investors to pay the earlier ones.
But there is one important difference: In a Ponzi scheme, the mastermind gathers all the money from new investors and then distributes them. Pyramid schemes, on the other hand, allow each investor to directly benefit depending on how many new investors are recruited. The person at the top of the pyramid does not at any point have access to all the money in the scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal in most but not all countries.
For both schemes, however, eventually there is not enough money to go around and the schemes unravel.

What is the biggest Ponzi scheme ever?

There have been many famous Ponzi conmen throughout history, especially in recent years. But the biggest schemer by far was Bernie Madoff.
Madoff stole US$65 billion from thousands of investors from the ordinary to the ultra-rich and famous. A respected former chairman of the Nasdaq stock market, Madoff started his Ponzi scheme in 1986 under the guise of a successful hedge fund - and ran it successfully for 23 years.
But the global financial crisis led to his undoing. In 2009, Madoff received redemption requests worth US$7 billion, which he was unable to meet. He confided his problems to his two sons, who reported him to the authorities.
Madoff is currently serving a 150-year prison sentence. One son hanged himself in 2010 on the two-year anniversary of his discovery of the fraud; the other died in 2014, blaming his cancer relapse on the stress and shame he suffered from his father's massive scam.

1. Need some advice as I was ask to go there for that...

I am skeptical as there are too many negative feedback on the sweet and slick talk which many Malaysian had already fallen into the trap.

Any comments welcome.

Thank you

2. it appears to me that you are already aware of the ponzi investment scam, the China government did a major crack down last year. Why would  you still want to get involved? there are other better investment you could go into instead of risking your hard earn money there.

3. Thank you very much for the heads up...

To me, it's another look look see see of NN and with the forum feedback, at least I will be alert.

Lastly, I only interested on how well they organized to smoke their way through with so many kuku....

Of cos, I wont tell them my real intention is to jalan jalan and lastly hopefully Singaporeans will wake up from their dream.


4. Many people said the same things as you before they went.

Came back "investing" tens of thousands of dollars.

Yes. Some people have made money from it. Most didn't.

China police bust massive S$10.8b Ponzi scheme with over 900,000 investors.
SHANGHAI - Authorities in China have busted what may well be the country's biggest illegal fund-raising case in terms of money and the number of investors, according to media reports on Monday (Feb 1).
Police arrested 21 people involved in the operation of peer-to-peer (P2P) lender Ezubao, the official Xinhua news agency said on Monday, over an online scam it said took in some 50 billion yuan (S$10.8 billion) from about 900,000 mainland investors.
Ezubao was a Ponzi scheme, the Xinhua report said, and more than 95 per cent of the projects on the online financing platform were fake.

Among those arrested was the scheme's alleged high-flying mastermind - Ding Ning,chairman of Yucheng Group, which launched Ezubao in July 2014.
The suspects are accused of luring in investors with false offers of double-digit annual returns.
Mr Ding, 34, financed his lavish lifestyle with money fleeced from investors, the South China Morning Post reported on Monday.
It said Ezubao was launched in July 2014 and embarked on a massive advertising campaign to raise funds.

On the surface, it was a P2P website with various projects, offering investors annual returns ranging between 9 per cent and 14.6 per cent. But in reality, the website's operators made up most of the projects listed on its website and used funds from new investors to pay old debts, Xinhua reported.

Chinese police said they had sealed, frozen and seized the assets of Ezubao and its linked companies.

The Ezubao case underscores the risks created by China's fast-growing US$2.6-trillion wealth management product industry, said Reuters. Many products are sold through loosely regulated channels, including online financial investment platforms and privately run exchanges.

Last time I told you about the other magic drink I brought from Indonesia, Sambiloto. Now I will give another secret to you about another drink of “miracle” from Indonesia that is known as The God’s Crown or The Crown of God, which is widely recognized in Indonesian language as Mahkota Dewa.

For you who want to live a healthy life or cure some diseases, this could be another effective traditional herbal drink for you to drink regularly. But first, I have to be honest that it doesn’t taste good. It’s quite bitter even if it’s not as much bitter as the king of bitter, Sambiloto; but still, it really is for you who aren’t used to bitter herbal drinks.

However, even if it’s not one of the most delicious drinks available, the healing benefits cannot be doubted. Like some other traditional herbal drinks that many people would avoid for the bitter taste, The God’s Crown or Mahkota Dewa provides you the health benefits that you can never imagine, such as:

1. Preventing and healing two of the diseases you fear the most, Tumor and Cancer.

 2. Neutralizing the body toxins.

 3. Killing any bacteria, virus and fungal in your body.

 4. Curing diarrhea problem.

 5. Helping your diet by reducing body weight and making your skin smooth as it contains antioxidants.

 6. Preventing and healing the cardiovascular diseases and strokes.

 7. Reducing high blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar level.

 8. Healing uric acid and rheumatic.

 9. Ensuring perfect blood circulation and making sure everything works well.

 10. Improving the stamina of our body.

Why Is Mahkota Dewa So Powerful?
The silly answer will be it’s because the name itself is called The Crown of GOD so why would you doubt its miracles ? But I won’t answer only this way

So, here is the reasonable answer. The God’s Crown or Mahkota Dewa is so powerful as it has four crucial chemical substances including Flavonoid, Alkaloid, Saponin and Polyphenol. They are the fantastic four that contribute to the superpower of Mahkota Dewa and provide the health benefits this herbal drink gives to the consumers.

And as an Indonesian, I’m proud that The God’s Crown or Mahkota Dewa is indigenous from Indonesia as I believe the best medicine should be natural.
Also, I’m happy that I’ve brought enough of its dry leaves to Italy for my herbal drinks supply! Now, would you want to try its superpower too?
