OPINION: Rich foreigners who mocked the poor in Singapore are by no means unique

Independent.ie, 23 Jan 2014
Singaporeans may be angry at the fund manager Anton Casey for his loathing of the ordinary folks on their island. But they shouldn't be surprised.
Because their government has created a country that sells itself to Westerners almost entirely with the lure of paying little or no income tax. Such a compact will always attract the type of expat for whom, like the late Margaret Thatcher, the concept of society and the shared endeavour that goes with it, is a nonsense. Why should I pay for other people's healthcare/education/public transport when I don't use it myself?
Anton Casey may flee Singapore after having his views aired in public, but he will surely leave many more like him behind. Link
