I frequently read that populist policy will not work in Singapore. What's wrong with such policies? Will it really ruin the country? If so, how they know it will ruin the country without even trying to implement it?

Usually policies the masses like but elites don't are labelled as populist.  Those elites like but masses don't are often referred to as "prudent", "long term"....

 

What's wrong catering to the masses?

Popular policies is not necessarily bad policies...likewise.....unpopular policies is not necessarily good.

 

Funny thing is.......the government is voted in by popular vote....yet they refuse to implement "populist" policies.

 

So is popular good or bad? :D

They should implement and try out . For example, ministers take a pay cut to finance some of the country expenditure such as merdeka package. Dun always increase gst and make life hard for people

Anything that doesn't benefit them means populist policy.
Any policy that benefits them means prudent, look long term, etc.

Unpopular policies are not necessarily good policies - i.e. unpopular policies can be bad policies

 

Aren't you just saying the same thing?

Populist usually have negative meaning in politics.

Ordinary people generally have no data access or may not be smart enough to make policy decisions so will vote on sound vibes and make poor decisions

Pap use this word to characterise oppo policies because oppo say things that will sound nice to the masses to get votes

And because of their use of the word - pap needs to say “cannot be populist”

And now people asking why populist is bad - expecting an answer - but actually it really about on the actual policy and context of use of the word

This proves the point - ordinary people usually not smart and ask wrong questions - like this case, hence gov cannot be populist.

That's the reason for the "likewise" inserted in the middle. 

 

The incumbent has been indoctrinating that unpopular policies they implemented despite all the unhappiness are good for us. Just suck it up like bitter medicine when they themselves draw astronomical pays and pensions.

 

I don't see them sharing the bitter medicine with all of us.
