Try asking this to a non-Singaporean: What do you think of when you think of Singapore?
Keywords that may come up include: lack of natural disasters, stable political structure, clean and green, multiracial and multicultural, etc. This pretty much paints a picture of an ideal place to stay and live.
However, Singapore is not even ranked within the top 10 most livable countries in the world1. The top 10 goes to cities in Switzerland, Austria, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, and Australia, while Singapore stands at 17th position. So what has gone wrong in Singapore?
