…that I discovered in a conversation with a friend today.
1. Singaporean politicians are amongst the highest-paid in the world. Also, according to the same friend, the most well-educated people tend to get into politics.
Also here is another fun fact:
2. Singapore is ranked 5/177 in the Transparency International corruption index.
If all this is true, and is not a matter of perception, it might be interesting to see what this implies…
