If there were any question that cities—not nations—are best positioned to meet the challenges of a global economy, look no farther than Singapore. The “Lion City” shows what can happen when pragmatic problem solving is put into practice. Here, traffic jams are nonexistent and foreign investment floods in due to a corruption-free environment—to say nothing, of course, of our beautiful boutique and luxury Singapore hotels! But if you think this is a land of conformist hardliners, you’re mistaken. Lately, the political culture has shifted: money is pouring into theater, music, and dance.
