Singapore’s fiscal strategies have helped sustain the country’s growth as a small and open economy. This book is a pioneering effort in terms of providing a non-technical, holistic view of Singapore’s strategies. The author, formerly Director of Fiscal Policy in Singapore’s Ministry of Finance and the Principal Private Secretary to the President of Singapore, provides an insider’s bird’s eye view of how Singapore’s fiscal strategies support monetary and economic policies, and address the needs of Singaporeans.
The book is structured to explain how the various aspects of Singapore’s fiscal policies inter-relate and work together as a functioning system, enabling the small city-state to prosper and progress since its independence in 1965. Besides providing a documentation of the development of Singapore’s fiscal strategies over the years, the current and impending national challenges to be addressed by fiscal strategies are also discussed. The author also addresses the importance of culture to a nation’s success, and highlights the impact of fiscal policy in this regard.
