How to have more babies when it's so damn expensive

Sent from Nowhere using GAGT
It has nothing to do with costs
Those who want kids will do so
Itís more of a personal choice

Kids are very cute

It will only be worse as the factory for the baby boomers are closing down.

After so many years, still refuse to push the price of flats down. How can a couple with average pay afford to purchase a flat.

Insist of using average pay multiple by xxx months as the price of flats. They refuse to look at cost of living as a variable and expect chicken rice still selling at 1$.

This greying population is they asked for it, they saw it long ago and refused to willingly address it. Their solution of importing a younger generation, is a quick fix that won't solve the problem but made the problem worse. Totally ignoring the plight of these elderlies to be but went full throttle on chasing the gdp at all cost, at cost of its born and bred citizens.

MAS and ministry of home are the jlb, particularly the ministry of home in the past 2 decades. Totally delusional about what's happening and believe the lies they spread.

So 218 babies very lucky for p1 registration

MOE already preparation ore primary schools and pre-schools to cater for last few yearsí babies

So 2018 babies enjoy all the resources too woh less peer competition

Also, MOE close and merge secondary school, junior colleges (Tampines JC more than 30 yeas also forever to close)

So maybe the long term plan is to have people with very basic education, learn to speak, write own name, know how to write your own address and recognize your own identification number, bank accounts etc,

doing mathematics etc not so critical anymore becoz computer can easily handle and much faster, cheaper

So no need to have much secondary schools to educate teenagers

Now, they encourage young people to make money by doing non-traditional jobs eg modeling, sports competition, or simple trade eg sell paintings - some people can bake cookies or paint welll - as long as can earn money and contribute CPF to quality for housing loan, take care basic medical expenses etc can already
