SINGAPORE IN TRANSITION: HOPE, ANXIETY AND QUESTION MARKS
What dark secrets lurk in Singapore’s basement?

Are Singaporeans a weak people?

Do Singaporeans really deserve their wages?

Who is more out of touch – the people or their leaders?

Why did founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew change his mind about writing his memoirs?

Han Fook Kwang, the former editor of The Straits Times, provides provocative answers to these questions and more, in this collection of 40 commentaries.

It draws from some of his best works in Singapore’s main newspaper in which he writes regularly since stepping down as its editor in 2012.

Among them are pieces on his reading of the watershed 2011 General Election and the equally surprising GE in 2015, new challenges facing the economy, what ails the medical profession and the public transport system, and the importance of a vibrant civic society.

The book also features a selection of his writings on Lee, whom he worked closely with on three books, including the bestselling Hard Truths To Keep Singapore Going and One
Man’s View Of The World.

Small Change 2- Turning cents to Dollars
Goh Eng Yeow, author of the bestselling book SMALL CHANGE – INVESTMENT MADE SIMPLE, has written a second book to demystify investing and make it interesting to the layperson.

Magnus Bocker, CEO of the Singapore Exchange, says: “Eng Yeow has an unusual knack for offering simple solutions that get to the core of a difficult financial issue while cutting out distractions which could cloud judgment.” He adds, “Knowledge is power. Only when we are proactive in learning about investing, about our risk profile and the various investment products available, can we expect to make informed decisions on what we should or should not invest in. Prudent investing is for the long term and should be diversified to include stocks, bonds, funds, ETFs, etc. I know that the mere mention of such jargon induces trepidation among some people. This isn’t helped by the fact that we live in an age where information is abundant and at times excessive. Sometimes, it is also difficult to navigate and know where to find the right investment information.”
