Income Inequality Motivates Singaporeans to Work Harder

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong defended Singapore's income inequality in a Parliamentary reply yesterday (Feb 5) saying that it motivates Singaporeans to work harder:

 "Some degree of income inequality is natural in any economy. It gives people the motivation to strive to do their best and improve their lives." The scion of the powerful Lee family also refused to take set up a ministerial committee to address income inequality, saying that existing measures is sufficient and refused to acknowledge the danger of income inequality: "

A specific committee is not necessary since government ministries already seek to tackle these challenges in a concerted and coordinated effort."
