'There is no true democracy here. If you criticize the government, the government will sue you.'
'In Singapore, most businesses are owned by the government. You do not see much entrepreneurs here.'
'Singaporean government doesn't look like a government, it is more like a company, which makes many things very efficient, but too business-oriented. So there is not much you can do here, because most things are taken care of by the government.'
'And the living standard is too high, many things are expensive, especially housing.'
So what he said about Singapore is sort of a wrapping-up of my first impression to Singapore after this trip. However, I think those phenomena is just a result of a unique combination of several political/governmental models. I found that quite interesting and thought that might be a partial answer (not perfect) to a better government for Taiwan.
