he is complete evidence of incompetent incapable asshole sitting on top of stat boards or glc companies. every ginna who not even qualified city planning knows that without proper transport planning and facilities there is no city . business cannot operate, office works would have so much delays since the people in charge is not at work to do the job. Guess empty useless vessels like this guy although cast aside still makes so much noise. really wasting oxygen and black hearted

This growth of population is a v bad idea
How big can SG cater for a growing population
With more population means more ageing population. Going by their logic, itsto have more young people to replace this group of ageing ppl
When the turn for this group of young people grows old n at a bigger population, they need to find an even bigger population to replace this group of young-turn-old. How to sustain in the long run?

what's your thoughts ???
My thought ish Liu Tai Ger have to stop his rubbish ideas.

“MRT breakdown has totally nothing to do with planning. It has everything to do with administration (and) management.”
It is poor administration and management that resulted in poor planning. Liu's boss should have known if Liu planned for 10 mil population, he also better plan for the infrastructure progresses along with population increase.

“You cannot say because the MRT breaks down, so we should not let the city grow. They are two unrelated issues,”
Not true. These are related issues. MRT is overloaded because Sg population is growing more than mrt can handle. If mrt can handle, then you don't need to install smlj new signalling system to let trains run at faster frequency.

But lets pretend mrt breakdowns have nothing to do with overloading. In the event of a peak hour breakdown, a massive 1/4 million people are affected in a really terrible way. So hard truth is the infrastructure cannot tolerate a breakdown and therefore cannot support the population size.

“In fact, I claim that when you do a longer-term projection, it takes care of all the ups and downs; you actually have a more accurate answer.”
This is a very arrogant view.

When you plan for something, and big screw ups come one after another, you have to re-evaluate to determine if you mistakenly embarked on an unfeasible plan.

Or re-evaluate if your plan may have been feasible, but along the way you screwed up so badly until now it is unfeasible to continue.

To insist your plan is still correct, and go on by ignoring the problems, in the end you will end up with your 10 mil population, but your city will not be liveable.

But Dr Liu sought to allay fears. He argued that the HDB’s mission of providing affordable homes is “not in conflict” with the record-breaking resale flat prices, since the latter are largely the result of market forces, not government intervention.
Lol...wtf is this guy saying? No govt intervention? Then wtf is MBT's asset enhancement policy?

And is flat prices operating under pure market forces? Don't forget, you have a CPF system which artifically channels huge amounts of cash into the housing market.

“If you are first-time applicants, you buy at the official prices set by HDB and that is affordable. The prices may have increased, but it’s in keeping with income increase.
BTO prices were delinked from resale market because the market was so farked by asset enhancement policy.

And don't pretend the huge spike in prices had nothing to do with the huge inflow of affluent FTs.

You want 10 million, you better plan your transport/housing properly first.

And still haven't talked about the mess that ish healthcare wor....lately you all would see your premiums go up up up.

Lol.....in the end liu ish just cheap talking. He can want 10 million, 20 million, any number he wishes. Because at the end, when things screw up, it will be you suffering the consequences of his mistakes, not him.

These elites are insulated from the consequences of their actions, so they say what they want, do what they want, while the rest of us peasants bear the costs of their random opinions and policies.

Lol... Since the asset enhacement policy and open leg ft policy, how much more do you need to pay for your housing?
