Join host Max Dostart-Meers (Silicon Valley native currently in exile and host of the “Saving the City” Interintellect series) along with special guest and Singaporean citizen Visakan Veerasamy (author of Friendly Ambitions Nerd and Introspect) to discuss life and prosperity in Singapore.
From housing to healthcare, Singaporean life has been ‘solved’ as a policy problem.
Hawker centers provide delicious, cheap food; Singaporeans have access to cheap and efficient healthcare systems with excellent outcomes; and Singapore has a state led housing scheme that allows for 90% of the Singaporean population to own their homes at cheap prices.
Even still, when we look harder, have Singaporeans simply been pacified? Could this citizenry be the most extreme example of Nietzsche’s “last man” available to us today?
