A larger Singapore contributing to human welfare and making huge money

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Otherpeer-review


I was an undergraduate student at Nanyang University in Singapore around the time of its independence half a century ago (1962–1965). I returned in 2013 to take up the Winsemius chair in economics vacated by the eminent Prof. Lim Chong Yah. Comparing Singapore now to 50 years ago, I see tremendous progress on many fronts. Looking forward another half a century, I am confident that Singapore will become larger (slightly in land area but much more so in population), stronger, richer, and happier. I will not live to see 2065, but our children and grandchildren will.
