At the crossroads of Singapore history, noted public intellectual and entrepreneur Devadas Krishnadas shares his insights on the intersecting realms of the social, political, and economic spheres of Singapore and where he thinks the country is headed. In the past two years, pivotal events such as the 2015 General Election, SG50: Singapore's Golden Jubilee, and the passing of Lee Kuan Yew have captured the nation's attention and provide cause for much-needed reflection and debate. This book is a compilation of articles where Devadas examines the ebbs and flows in Singapore's societal, political, economic and external environment over the last two years and offers practical solutions to the challenges that lay ahead in Singapore. Unline academic writing, Devadas' writing is accessible to the average person on the street, even when grappling with complex issues. He brings to life the issues discussed by musing on his personal experiences, this appealing better to the wider public.
