    Beware the Unintended Consequences

    Policymakers and political leaders in Singapore speak oftentimes about “mindsets” and the need to change them before policies can follow. They speak oftentimes, too, of existing “values” and “traditions” that policies must respect and speak to. This is an incomplete view of the relationship between policy and culture that overlooks and under-examines the influence of policy on culture.

    The author of Neoliberal Morality in Singapore discusses the unintended consequences of policymaking in an article for the Singapore TODAY.
