What does Bloomberg reporter knows about Singapore Public Housing policies? By saying condominium are priced 20% higher than HDB just exposed your ignorance and stupidity. Besides, why the need to bring in the Bukit Ho Swee fire when talking about Singapore Public Housing? Why not talk about how the British housing when Singapore was under its rule and how Britain cowardly abandon Singapore during Japanese invasion ? You are clueless and Bloomberg is never known to praise Singapore. Please do not talk about subjects that you have no factual knowledge of, you could have brush up your history about Singapore Public Housing before opening your mouth, Ignorant reporting only proves that Bloomberg is not worth a thing in this world. Also please do not tell people where you acquire your communication degree because you will embarrass the university.

Maybe San Fransisco could learn from Singapore to address the issue of homelessness in their city.

"Singapore's public housing is considered as on of the world's best. But some see it as a way of social control. For instance, quotas ensure a mix of Chineses, Indians, Malays in each HDB block, Aiming to carefully integrate ethnic groups and prevent the formation of a volatile racial enclave. But still, a mighty agency with effective policies and strong political will has fixe Singapore's chousing crisis and improved the living conditions of millions." Here in France, we have no strong politics, and talking about "racial enclave" is considered as rude words, that's end with communitarianism issues and some yellow jackets.

high rise building living comes with a package of dangers. firstly, bad for people with health issues such as BP, hyper tension, heart related illnesses etc etc. secondly, small children falling off from windows and balconies. thirdly, epidemics, sicknesses in closely knit units. fourthly, in case of fire. then comes the going up and down the steps in case of power failures, sewer and plumbling block ups. totally inconvenient to go shopping and carrying all the weight. with so much land on earth, i see no reason for any people to live in high rise buildings.

It's 99 year lease for 80% of the population. The model of retirement in SG is the investment into the flat, and then renting out spare rooms.

First time I hear government intervention actually boosts productivity. The key must be it's racial quota per building to avoid racial groups to form gangs

Very tiring live in the Singapore public housing! Overall, HOB only created a similar environment for people. All the stores, school, public spaces almost the same. Like a massive Bee Have, people live like a Robot without individuality. Nothing to envy for...! What a successful? Not really! >< All depend on what you define the happy and free life...!

India does have similar scheme(in fact, 90% of new lands are sold under these schemes). Unlike Singapore, there is no concept of leasing it for 99 year or so. You own the land and transfer it to family after you take a dirt nap...forever and ever.

Hm, I heard from Singaporeans that the lease you get from the public housing department (HDB) is a 99 year lease, not full ownership. At least, you can't pass it down to your children I think.

Really impressive. If only this happened in the USA, whether on a federal or state level. Instead, the luxury housing market is booming, but housing for everyone else isn't being built, and a lot of people can't afford to rent, let alone buy, a home of their own. Admittedly, the housing situation isn't so bad in small cities and towns, but in the big cities, it's unbearable.

In the Philippines, the government build houses to the illegal settlers. But those illegal settlers sell their house provided by governments and came back as an illegal settlers. 🙄 In addition, the houses also have a low quality of materials because of those corrupt officials. That's why it is hard for the county to become progressive because of the hard-headed people and abusive officials.

The world cannot model itself after a postage stamp country that's barely a 1/2 century old. When your country is that young and tiny, your problems are going to be much easier to solve. Have the world's poor grab at their legs by the millions, and then see how well they hold up.

They fail to mention that Singaporeans pay through their nose for one of these little shoeboxes while the government profits tremendously off of it...how do you think our country got so rich with such 'low income taxes'... Perhaps it was true that when the government first started building public housing it was for the benefit of everyone having a roof over their heads. These days however, that motivation has changed into how much they can profit from halving the size of a apartment but charge twice as much. You can say that inflation has raised prices but the price of a public house here has increased 300 - 400% compared to the 1980s. That accounts for much more than inflation.
Brock Story (2 месяца назад)
Yeah when you try to give everyone a house the price rises

It makes sense: forcing people to live together is an effective step in washing out their cultural heritage and thus making them more docile. Its also why I dont trust cosmopolitanism. It claims to want diversity, but it ends up having everyone act, think, and dress in the same way. If people cant live in separate together with those who share their culture, that culture dies.

How come our (US) public high rises didn't work but theirs did?
Maddinhpws (2 месяца назад)
Because the US is extremely corrupt in everything they do. Also probably because they didn't add the social control aspect. You need to have different types of people and income in these high rise otherwise it becomes a slum of people pissing everywhere and taking drugs.
ceciLOVEtaco (2 месяца назад)
Easy , ABSOLUTELY , 100% , NO CHURNING PROPERTY. Singapore has thousands of rules against property churning. If you don't have real demand of living , there will be no HDB houses for you. If you play to cheat government , you WILL PAY THE PRICE. Fine +jail + ultimately confiscation of your house. You dare to cheat the government ? They will nail you down . So the result is everyone obeys the law so everyone can own his own house at an affordable price. & most important of all , money can not buy the intergrity of Singapore's government . Don't expect the government to change its policies under conglomerates' lobbying pressure. Even though lobbying works extremely well in other countries, it doesn't work in Singapore.

Making sure there is a mix is probably why it's successful in part. A lot of the reason housing projects fail is because they become squaler(issue of people peeing all over for some reason) if it's filled only with the lowest income people. Lots of cases where the stairwells end up used for drug dealing and gangs. For better social house in the West they need to mix low income with middle class more

Singapore is an authoritarian state. There is no actual democracy in there. The rule of law is machiavellian.

An "unexplained fire", I guess they needed a nudge huh? Ot must be terrible having to face expensive housing costs but I imagine a nation that you cannot even truly find in an atlas, that you can lap in an hour has much real estate for much of it population to invest in. I'm pretty sure that for anything to be built you have to tear something down. For one person to get a backyard, you may have to take down one of those towers, I guess your willing to provide standing space in your new backyard for the former tenants. I'm pretty sure it sucks to be restricted to your four government walls but I could point you to the many who wish they could share your inconvenience

About fire. I'm from BR and I can assure that fire can be pretty normal in slums(SP city has a lot of history with this). So please understand, everyone that think that this level of social control(it's basically irrelevant) can be dangerous to the nation clearly don't know nothing about life. Singapore deserves the peace nobel by but their citizens in first place!

this is one of the best propaganda vids you will find... Singapore's public housing isn't cheap and the "homes" are leasehold, for all you know, that "squater fire" was started by the gov to move them... conspiratorial perhaps, but with a dictatorship, "amazing" things can happen, fyi, the cpf was actually started by the british and is now a matter of serious contention with the gov constantly refusing to honor their promise to return the savings at 55years old. News of singapore is usually propaganda and its a very pretty picture on the surface... until you actually talk to a native singaporean, there's a reason why it has one of the most unhappy people and also one of the costliest cities... (a gov hdb recently was sold for $1000,000.00 or more) Don't believe all you see in vids
