  1. Going by this article high stress = good PISA ought to have some level of positive correlation to happiness but as you yourself have commented, Singaporeans are an unhappy lot. Anyway, your solution is a doped population like the yanks or throw more in jail … but maybe all those unhappiness has a lot to do with stress not finding an outlet. Next solution, hire more psychotherapists. They are all gonna be FTs. LOL!

    • Many local kids are studing psychology as first degree subject. ))). Ravi’s son (private uni) is one of them. PAP plans ahead. LOL.
