Can Singapore Survive

Author:Kishore Mahbubani

Publication date: March 2015

ISBN: 9789814342971

 
 
This book poses the question that Singaporeans must wrestle with: can we survive as an independent city-state? Kishore Mahbubani believes that Singaporeans must always ask the question because constant reflection and self-examination should be a part of the core DNA of all Singaporeans. His goal in this book is to create and enhance this culture of reflection among all Singaporeans. He gives three answers in this book: Yes, No & Maybe. With these three answers, he attempts to sketch three different scenarios for Singapore’s future. 
 
There is logic behind this, as we cannot predict the future. We can,however, prepare for the future by telling stories about what the future could be like.
 
Besides his substantive Introduction, this book offers some of Kishore’s best essays on Singapore, taken from his Think-Tank and Opinion columns in The Straits Times, as well as contributions to Guardian News, The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, Davos World Economic Forum’s Forum News Daily, and the “Innovations for Successful Societies” Oral History Project of Princeton University.
