One-stop shop to make India 20 times richer

Get the BEST talent, and do not grudge what you pay for it. Views of Lee Kuan Yew, the ultimate guru of governance

Singaporean teachers feel unhappy at the higher salaries paid to native English teachers. Well, this cannot be avoided. We have to pay them what will bring them to Singapore – the market rate in the UK plus an extra to attract them to Singapore. I frequently meet expat bankers, executives of multinationals, indeed occasionally expat officers working for the Singapore government on contract, who are paid more than I am. I have learned not to let it disturb me. – Lee Kuan Yew
