    Everything Changes

    Everything changes. Even Singapore.

    The Singapore where no one wants to make babies and prefers to make money in a job prescribed by gov’t policy rather than personal passion.

    New The Straits Times & SSUS study paints a different picture of the future: https://lnkd.in/fQWybhh

    - S’porean 19yo: "Ultimately, you want to serve some purpose in the industry." 42% prefer a meaningful job to a well-paid one (17% )

    - 80+% want to get married and have kids; the majority: before they're 30yo

    - 81%: prefer consultative to paternalistic government

    Interesting tidbits on mobile & social: 70+% spend at least 5 hours a day on their phone BUT...

    OK TO DISCONNECT TOGETHER: "I think I could survive without my phone only on the condition that all my friends don't have their phones too, so I don't feel disconnected," says a 19yo.

    NOT EVERYONE’S EQUALLY CONNECTED: "...individuals of a higher socio-economic status, usually display a sense of disinterest towards the relational aspect of social media... probably because they have other social resources," says Assistant Prof Saifuddin Ahmed, NTU.
