Singapore is doing well, many things are going for it at the moment. If the world economy is slowing down, I know Singapore is going to be affected. The last time we had a slowdown, Singapore came through very very well (as did China), partly because they both had saved a lot of money for a rainy day. So the last time we had a rainy day they started spending the money and Singapore and China came through much better.
This time around there is more debt everywhere, including Singapore so Singapore will be affected the next time we will have a problem and so will China.
