        Why is Singapore so rich???
        Here is one opinion on why:

        Actually the short answer is very simple; stability, good governance and very low corruption.
        Of course there are a lot of things that is behind these three main reasons, but that all follows from the above; Rule of Law, high standard in education, health care and social cohesion.
        Other factors are; low crime and racial harmony.
        None of this come by itself, nor was it inherited from the former colonial Master, Britain. (Except English Common Law and Westminster System of Government)
