Fun Fact…

…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…

  1. Amend the Constitution to make politicians’ salaries compete with those of I-bankers, and progress-based bonuses to incentivise good work, will attract better people to politics? Sounds like a plan. One flaw, though – guess who can amend the Constitution? :-/
