Commonspace #5: Socioeconomic & Income Inequality in Singapore

Thank you to all guest panelists and viewers who joined us for our 5th installment of Commonspace on the topic of socioeconomic and economic inequality in Singapore. Besides their compelling sharings, the panelists also addressed many interesting questions from the audience, such as their take on the minimum wage, the principles behind social mobility, and whether we should look towards alternative models away from capitalism.

We hope that you have gained some key insights and takeaways and have left the session with a better understanding of the complex nature of this issue in Singapore. A recording of the session, as well as a copy of the corresponding transcript, has been provided for any interested reader.
