Despite all misdeeds of PAP government, one must still credit her for having the wisdom of keeping food price low. The elites of Singapore seems to be aware that they are able to impose harsh direct or indirect taxes and financial burden on people, so long as food price is affordable to people.
A loaf of bread in Singapore is close to 2 times the price in Indian cities.
Before, when Kuan Yew younger and wiser, he secured the rule of PAP by making housing low. As he grows older and greedier, he and fellow elites abandoned the low housing policies, putting PAP on the path of losing power.
