PAP ant oppo can learn from world’s richest man

In Public Administration on 21/04/2019 at 5:02 am

Our PAP govt is very risk adverse (Got to check with list of Hard Truths or call up Harry’s spirit before proceeding?) and everytime something does do wrong the anti-PAP types are out screaming at the PAP.

In his latest annual report to shareholders, Bezos is keen to remind investors that failing one reason for long-term success at Amazon: https://ftalphaville.ft.com/2019/04/11/1554989596000/Bezos-on-why-failure-is-not-failure/

Maybe the anti-PAP types scream at govt failures because they want S’pore to fail? They hope that that by screaming, they can prevent govt from experimenting its way to success for S’pore.

PM, PAP should remember what world’s richest man said

In Political governance, Public Administration on 09/09/2018 at 10:56 am

Given former PM’s comments his comment that those in the private sector earning less than $1m are “very mediocre people”, it’s surprising that the PM and the PAP are ignoring what the world’s richest man said

“Experiments are by their very nature prone to failure. But a few big successes compensate for dozens and dozens of things that didn’t work,” said Mr Jeff Bezos in 2014.

I was reminded of this when I read

Mr Alfred Tan said that the PAP still refuses to acknowledge the policy blunder [about HDB leases]. He said that one of the key basic disciplines in problem solving is admitting that there is a problem. Only when there is an admission of misjudgment can the first step be taken towards a real and meaningful resolution and rectification of the problem.

“Is the PAP government prepared to man up and admit this misstep?” Mr Tan asked.
