In the face-to-face survey of 1,400 Singaporeans aged 15-29 by Ngee Ann Polytechnic, it was found that 44 per cent had life insurance, and of those who did, a quarter had between two and four policies. Also, 28 per cent of the respondents had some form of medical or hospitalisation insurance, with 20 per cent of this group having between two and four policies. 'These figures were quite surprising,' said Henry Koh, a lecturer at Ngee Ann's School of Business and Accountancy, yesterday. 'A lot of these were students, yet the percentage of people (who have policies) is quite high. I think it shows some concern over financial security in the future and that they're more savvy in terms of insurance.' The survey, which aimed to give insights into Singapore's 'Generation Y', also found that 7 per cent of interviewees had invested in either unit trusts or mutual funds, with 22 per cent of this group having between 2-4 investments. The top three companies for both life and medical insurance were AIA, Prudential and NTUC Income. And being young hasn't stopped Singaporeans from owning credit cards either. According to the survey, 29 per cent of those......

...Full control ensures shoe retailer never misses a step By RACHAEL BOON THE success of shoe label and fashion retailer Charles & Keith International on the global front can be attributed to its ability to have a firm grip of its operations across its vast network of stores and factories. This unwavering commitment has put the company in good stead to weather the major crises it had faced, dating back to the days when the retailer was operating out of a small store in Ang Mo Kio in 1990. Back then, co-founder and chief executive Charles Wong, 39, and his younger brother, Keith, 37, were just teenagers helping out at their mother’s shop. She wanted the older Mr Wong to close the unprofitable shoe section, but the future shoe maven was determined to turn it around. He mapped out a plan to take control of the entire shoe business operations – from stocks to design and even shoe sizing. As a result, the shoes sold well and Mr Wong managed to stave off the store’s closure. This experience honed his business acumen, which would serve him well when he decided to set up his own shoe company with his younger brother, who is the firm’s chief operating officer. From the outset, the siblings were determined to make a name for themselves by starting their own brand. In 1996, they set up shop in Amara Shopping Centre to market and sell Charles & Keith shoes at a time when it was unheard of for local shoe retailers to brand themselves. The move was......

Malaysia - Singapore Relations: the Security Dilemmas

...MALAYSIA – SINGAPORE RELATIONS: THE SECURITY DILEMMAS INTRODUCTION ‘It's impossible to be friendly with Singapore because of the neighbouring city states’ unfriendliness towards Malaysia. Singapore gets into that kind of mood that they reject anything that comes from Malaysia. We try to be as friendly as possible but it's impossible’.[1] Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad Former Malaysia Prime Minister “…we fear that at some time or other there could be a random act of madness like cutting off our water supplies, which they had publicly threatened whenever there were differences between us… we have to be prepared for all contingencies”.[2] Lee Kuan Yew Former Singapore Prime Minister Singapore became a part of Malaysia in 1963. On the part of Singapore, such was a welcomed move as Singapore lacks the depth, mass and resources deemed necessary for development and survival. On the part of Malaysia, however, it started-off as a half-hearted decision, with Tunku Abdul Rahman fearing that the Chinese population in Singapore would, after the merger, upset the Malay majority in Malaya. In May 1960, he told Malayan students in London that “(The) Chinese-educated and new immigrants will always be loyal to China and they are less Malay-minded,” and that the inclusion of the 1.3 million Chinese would confuse Malayans and ruin the calm atmosphere of the......

Cultural Values

...Intercultural Communication The Most Prominent Cultural Value in Singapore: ‘Face Value’ Tutor | Professor Stefanie Stadler Done by: Low Nan Wu Darren (U0930545A) Date of Submission: 5th Sep 2011 Introduction The term cultural values refer to our conception of the commonly held standards of what is acceptable or unacceptable, important or unimportant in a community or society. All values are learned values. Humans are not inherently born with the understanding of the kinds of values they should uphold. Instead, values are passed down and inculcated from one generation to another through intricate agents such as experiences, interaction, friends, families and cultural norms. Needless to say, different cultural groups espouse different values. Studies on culture have shown a saliency of difference in both Asian and western values (Schwartz, 1994). Due to the nature and diversity of their beliefs and practices, Asian and western cultures have been largely distinguished as being collectivistic and individualistic respectively (Victor, 1992; Wagner & Moch, 1986). In the case of an individualistic culture, an individualist would consider his or her own personal interest and goals more important than the group’s interest (Victor, 1992; Earley 1989; Wagner & Moch, 1986). On the other hand, a collectivistic culture would value membership in a group, show stronger loyalty to their social groups and place their own interests before the groups’ interest......

The goals and precepts the ASEAN have been outlined as such because of a myriad of significant historical events. South-East Asia was a region experiencing turmoil during the 1960s. Malaysia and Philippine relations were damaged between the years of 1962-66 owing to the conflict over Sabah. Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei were all reeling from the departure of Great Britain as colonizers. This event led these countries posed a daunting challenge, both economically and politically, that these newly independent countries needed to overcome. Then the clash between Indonesia and Malaysia; in 1965 after just barely three (3) years after union of Indonesia and Malaysia the two (2) countries decided to sever their ties and declared themselves independent from each other. The Vietnam War was ongoing which was further heightened by the increasing popularity of communism in the South-East Asian region facilitated by the Cultural Revolution of China in 1967, all of which resulting to the formation of the ASEAN.

...Kevin Discuss whether this model of market structure (oligopoly) is the most appropriate to explain the behavior of firms in Singapore. [15] Firms’ behaviours can largely be explained by the market structures they exist in as the number of players in the market and the kind of goods would determine the behaviours of the firms. In Singapore, the firms that dominate the economy are largely service industries as well as global firms that are exporting products overseas. Otherwise, the small size of Singapore markets allows just a few firms to dominate them and satisfy the demand of the entire market. These firms are large players in their markets, interdependent on their rivals’ actions and they create highly differentiated products, therefore, oligopoly market structure can be the most appropriate model for explaining their behaviors. Oligopolistic markets share the features of non-price competitions, aggressive branding to differentiate their goods, with firms being mutually interdependent, which results in their need to monitor each others’ actions and devising responses. There are also significant barriers to entry, possibly driven by economies of scale. As the pure forms of market structures such as perfect competition and monopoly doesn’t fit into the picture for Singapore firms, oligopoly’s features would better describe the behaviours of firms in Singapore. Take the example of the market for retro Straits-styled Coffeeshop cafes; the market is dominated by Toastbox......

Appendix Full of Nonsense

...Appendix 1 The recession was caused by the global financial crisis. Source: “The global economy plunged into its worst recession in the post-war period late last year, as key segments of the financial system seized up and trade collapsed.” Appendix 2 Appendix 3 Source: “The Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) released final figures yesterday showing that the economy expanded 14.5 per cent last year, reversing a 0.8 per cent decline in 2009.” The Singapore economy started to display signs of moderation in the middle of last year after the exceptionally strong recovery. While the external outlook, particularly in the US, has improved, final demand in the developed economies is expected to remain fairly modest at this juncture. In comparison, the outlook for Asia ex-Japan economies is more positive. While growth in the region will likely slow from last year, it should continue to be supported by firm domestic demand. Alongside the maturing of the global inventory restocking cycle, the domestic manufacturing sector is likely to see slower growth this year in line with the pace of end demand in the key export markets. Construction activity will also decelerate, with the completion of mega projects such as the integrated resorts. As such, services will play a larger role in driving economic activity this year, underpinned......

Evolution of News Media

...recording and government liscensing (Chia, 2011). Not only has new media disrupted the old conventional model by reducing the barrier of entry to extraordinarily low levels, it has also challenged the commercial model that funds traditional news media gathering and adversely gained tremendous recognition as an essential platform for information dissemination and acquisition (Koh, Lim, Ng, Detenber and Cenite, 10/08/2005). As one of the most wired nations in the world, the Singapore media industry sees audiences and advertisers alike, moving away from traditional media towards digital media (Choo, 12/08/2013); where news from myriad sources is available free of charge and where advertisers have a wide range of options for reaching consumers, including cost-effective online advertising and online retailing. In Singapore, traditional news media are primarily represented by two companies, one owned by Temasek (MediaCorp), one of the state’s sovereign-wealth funds, and the other (Singapore Press Holdings) that is government-centric through close monitoring and regulation. Now forced to compete with a vast spectrum of new publishers such as WikiLeaks, giant news aggregators like Yahoo, MsN and Google News as well as millions of bloggers of whom are empowered by the new abilities of multi-way communication. Transmission of news media has resulted in eroding the degree of editorial influence over the public’s issue agenda as well as erecting yet another barrier to effective......
