After trains now come buses.
Stakeholders Vs Shareholders. Party Against People (PAP) as is also known among netizens is spending $1.1B of taxpayers(stakeholders) $$ to buy 550 buses + cover 10 years running costs for the privatised public transport companies which are majority owned by the govt. Socializing costs privatizing profits.
Easy duopoly business with captive market to transfer $$ from masses into hands of minority of shareholders.
When there is such easy way to make $$ there is little/no incentive to increase local workforce productivity through automation. Just flood in more & more people since they are forced to use the buses/trains. Automated machines if bought to increase productivity can't use buses/trains on a daily basis while hordes of imported cheaper labor cum consumers die die must use.
Gdp can grow can already. Grow like cancer also damn good- that's how distasteful the gdp mindset of the pap.
