Result of this poll is akin to the 80/20 Pareto Principle- 20% of the people make 80% of the money.
Something that the 80% don't understand & why the majority struggle till death. The 20% know that by focusing on self-improvement, the rest will get better. $$-Health-Relationships are all inter-related.
Some of those making more $$ may be at the expense of their health.
34% of respondents voted $$ as top yet the vast bulk of these 34% consider the 'love of $$ is root of all evil'. Truth is lack of $$ is the root of all evil. Why would $$ stay with a person if it is considered evil? Likewise if a person is uncomfortable with $$, he/she would subconsciously get rid of $$ through a multitude of ways.
With profit-centric state capitalism practised by the current ruling party in S'pore it is indeed easier to make $$ in S'pore compared to other countries. I loathe the money sucking policies of the current ruling party & i vote against them but one has higher chance of protecting oneself by investing in those government owned companies(which i do) than hoping for a win at the lottery with dismal odds.
I'm sure there are financially wise folks out there who invest in govt-linked companies to protect themselves & then donate part of profits to other political parties/websites. Is no different from voters who received goodies from the current money-sucking party & yet vote against them. Money in itself is neutral. Is how it is used that makes the difference.
