How Singapore Fixed Its Housing Problem

Singapore had a severe housing shortage decades ago. But it developed one of the world's best public housing programs, which has also allowed a huge number of its citizens to buy their own homes. Video by Vicky Feng, Robin Fall and Christian Capestany, with assistance of Melissa Cheok

This explains how demand from foreign money is kept out of the housing market. This idea is genius.

Reason why pubic housing hasn’t had crime is because they don’t have poverty. Singapore has a solid economy going and when you have people employed you have people working for a living rather than stealing for a living. Remains to be seen if the gov will allow the private sector to be more independent and less reliance on socialism.

Housing in Singapore is extremely expensive tho. You probably can buy 2 regular houses in other countries for the same price of 1 apartment in sg

Of course American media would get incensed over social control despite the fact that such a policy is necessary given Singapore’s history of volatile racial tensions.

Our Zionist US government should learn from Singapore. Our tax dollars are spend on endless wars and Israeli government to bomb people. We are the richest country in the world but we have homeless people because our tax dollars spend on useless wars.

If you let the government pay to build high quality high rise Apartments that are well maintained AND force the 99% to live in them. It can work. Just as Ford once said, You can have any color of motor vehicle you want as long as it is black.

social control works in singapore because it's a small country. the government can afford to house people and fix stuff because they don't have hundreds of millions of people in their country, therefore, being more authoritarian is the more pragmatic approach. government intervention usually fails because it is unsustainable financially, resulting in poor quality products which cost a lot of money, which is why it works well in singapore but will utterly fall flat on it's face if it's ever tried in places like the USA, not to mention the cultural differences of how asians are typically more ok with the idea of collectivism vs individualism.

I'm sorry but this is just ridiculous and I have so much to say as a born and raised Singaporean. Firstly, we don't own the houses. We lease them for 99 years. Houses cost at least 6 digit figures. In most parts of the world, u could get a big house with a lovely backyard with that kind of money. Now there's this new law where we aren't even allowed to smoke in our own houses and officers can storm into our houses without a warrent to "enforce this law". So, please. Essentially we rent these houses for a ridiculous price then can't do nuts in there. Secondly, the cost of living is so high that many middle-class people live paycheck to paycheck. Visit a MacDonalds or a food centre take a look around and see how many elderly, who are weak and frail, are serving and cleaning tables. Notice how many of our pioneers are gathering empty soda cans or selling tissue packets to try and earn a little money to just get by. Singapore thrives on tourism, so for the many comments that say that we are a great place to visit? Well of course! Sure, I'll give it to Singapore that we are a safe country and a clean one too. So many laws that a flick of a cigerette bud could cost you an immediate $300 fine. Almost half of the country wants to migrate -including myself. An incompetent, complete joke of a government where when faced with the question as to why Singaporeans don't have more babies that was answered with "the high cost of living", one of our dear ministers stated how "you don't need much space to conceive a baby". Ministers are so disgustingly overpaid. Prices continue to increase whilst everything is failing. Our trains, the main commute for most of us, are constantly breaking down but yet they are charging higher fares. Water and electricity bills increasing by 30% and our tax is being raised too. And hey, while we're at it; I would also like to sprinkle in the factor of silent racism and discrimination. Oh and the lack of freedom and how LGBTQ+ is still illegal and frowned upon like some backward ass society. I could go on and on but I'm sure y'all get the point. I will admit that the country is safe compared to America or others. Sure, we have a roof over our heads but at what price? Staying forever in debt to the government? And homelessness is still a thing here, fyi. Singaporeans are famous for complaining but you know. I digress.
Zen Zann (23 часа назад)
+Rienne Koh I definitely don't disagree w your points as they are incredibly valid. I think it is just a matter of opinion & perspective. I'm sure that there are loads of Singaporeans that are happy and appreciative of their situation - unfortunately I'm just not one of them. But hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I think what is important is that us, as Singaporeans, are able to have conversations about it.
Rienne Koh (23 часа назад)
Other than the point that S’pore government leaders are grossly overpaid and have debatable calibre which I agree with you on, I disagree on these points: - Complaining over high cost of property. You say in most parts of the world you can get a big house with lovely backyard? Sure, it’s economics. You are comparing property prices in countries with vast land to S’pore, a tiny island country that’s one-tenth the size of Seoul? Anyone knows that land in big countries is cheaper. Like what you say, you can always migrate elsewhere and get your dream property at low prices i.e. USA and find that you live in fear for your life because some gun-toting madman can appear any time, anywhere. And racism abounds everywhere, also in America where the whites look down on Asians and the blacks. Next, if you compare the housing situation in S’pore to Hong Kong (as both countries face land scarcity issues), then you’ll see that the housing situation in S’pore is better. For the apartment price you pay in S’pore, in HKG they live in much smaller spaces, and most HKers with average income can’t even afford to buy an apartment, even if it’s on 99 year lease condition. Check out Youtube videos - HKers have migrated elsewhere and to S'pore because HDB flats' conditions are like heaven compared to HK housing conditions. - New law on not smoking in homes? Oh I’m not affected as my family doesn’t have a smoker. Oh and please tell me how many cases there are of officers storming into homes to arrest someone smoking in their home. I haven’t seen one case at all. I suppose you think the police are omni-present or have installed a surveillance camera outside all the windows of your flat so that they can catch you smoking? Please - this is just like the anti-chewing gum law, and many people still smuggle gum in. The police won’t be enforcing minor things, unless your neighbour hates you so much as to provide video evidence of you breaking this “non smoking in home” law. - The issue of poor elderly people doing cleaning jobs etc with very low income is a problem faced by many countries, whether developed, developing or 3rd world countries. It is not just a Singapore issue. - "An incompetent, complete joke of a government". I think if you migrate elsewhere, you’ll find their governments are worse than S’pore. Many Western countries and their economy are in decline, public infrastructure, transport and facilities are in decline, dirty etc. And many governments do nothing in the interest of their people. Please tell me which country govt is the best. I’m not a PAP supporter, I think the PAP govt has their flaws, but I do acknowledge that they are efficient in many areas.

lots of uneducated comments in here. the government built housing is using funds from people that already paid into. the prices of the government housing is only 20-30% cheaper than market price and you ARE NOT a homeowner, you are leasing for life. Nothing to call your own, nothing to save up for and pass to your children. Communist thinking has really destroyed this world. Just look at the comment section, everybody begging for the government to solve their problems. Little do they know Singapore is a global beacon of capitalism and uses it to attract investments and companies to an otherwise island in the middle of nowhere.

Meredith Mynrose Universal Healer (17 дней назад)
On 9 August 1965, Singapore separated from Malaysia to become an independent and sovereign state. The separation was the result of deep political and economic differences between the ruling parties ofSingapore and Malaysia, which created communal tensions that resulted in racial riots in July and September 1964.
Meredith Mynrose Universal Healer (17 дней назад)
So funny they say malaysian immigrants squat in singapore when singapore was part of malaysia before it decided to start a feud with Malaysia if they dont let go of singapore to build their own country. Bloomberg didnt get 1 fact check right. They should just say settlement of mixed races, there is no such thing as malaysian immigrants they were possibly already living there but had no choice as to the separation of "singapura" and "malaysia" was done through intimidation of racial wars.

Hong Kong government should really take the housing policy of Singapore as reference. Why our government cannot be like the Singapore one? When Singapore was founded in 1965, they took the public housing model of Hong Kong as reference, but now... What happened to Hong Kong?
NatandSam (18 дней назад)
Decades ago the Singapore government promised that they would give us houses having a 99 year lease to us for hundreds of thousands for 4 room flats however recently they have implemented the rule of not being able to sell flats that are 40 years and above. Isnt that legally taking away money from us... coming up with all those bullshit and $300 voucher for residents to make people ecstatic and vote for them for the upcoming election. What can $300 do. This year they increased the electricity water gas bills. This country has become a LEE Empire

The crime rate in Singapore is generally quite low, there’s fines for littering, cameras in lift lobbies/common areas, etc. The government comes down hard on drug dealers/users, so in a typical HBD block you won’t find anyone in possession of drugs. We’re taught not to litter and there are cleaners who are also employed to keep the HDBs clean (in comparison to housing in other countries).
