Unintended Consequences

I attended a fascinating conference recently on “Unintended Consequences” run by Singapore Management University which, among other things, looked at what’s made Singapore successful but what now needs to change.

A robust legal and business framework, strong sources of humans capital and high quality technical infrastructure had all contributed to Singapore’s economic success and potential for greater innovation.

However greater risk taking, embedding an innovative culture and securing new market access are three of the great opportunities if the country wants to really accelerate this.

      I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.
