A Singapore sling is inadequate for unwieldy China

China is keen to emulate Singapore's success, but its lack of outstanding leadership, solid institutions and a strong rule of law set it apart from the prosperous city-state.

This time last year, Singapore’s first prime minister, who currently holds the title of ‘Minister Mentor’, was plugging his book. It expressed concern about China’s rise in unusually blunt language. As The Grand Master’s Insights on China, the United States and the World puts it: “China tells us that countries big or small are equal, that it is not a hegemon. But when we do something they do not like, they say you have made 1.3 billion people unhappy. So please know your place.”
