About Singapore and the New Sharing Economy
How Singapore Became Asia’s Economic Powerhouse
When people see Singapore’s gleaming skyscrapers, bustling financial district, and modern amenities not dreamed of just a few years ago, they often wonder how Singapore grew into this thriving metropolis. Forward-thinking leadership, economic freedom, and an ambitious workforce underpin Singapore’s rise into the international spotlight.
Modern Singapore history began in 1819, when it was founded as a trading post for the British East India Trading Company. When the company collapsed in 1858, the British colonized Singapore as part of its Crown Rule in India. As a British possession, Singapore became a Japanese target during World War II. In February, 1942, the Japanese defeated British forces on the island and occupied Singapore.
The Japanese surrender in World War II liberated Singapore, but left the island in a state of disorder. The war had badly damaged the infrastructure and decimated the economy. The British established a military government. Singaporeans, taking pride in their city, were determined to not just rebuild, but gain their independence.
In the 1950s, Chinese communists with strong trade union and Chinese school ties rebelled against the British-backed government. In 1959, Singapore achieved independence. The People’s Action Party won control of the new Singapore government in a landslide election victory.
Singapore gained full independence in 1965. In a single generation, Singapore transformed from a third-world status to a first-world affluent, modern city and financial, technological, and healthcare center. At present, Singapore stands as the region’s leading economy. This success was achieved through the work ethic of its people, and its government’s support of economic growth, business, and entrepreneurship.
Today, Singapore ranks as one of the four Asian tigers, along with Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea. Singapore GDP has surpassed the other tigers, with its main industries including financial services, telecoms, banking, transportation, and oil exports.
Singapore has a vibrant cultural scene, including abundant nightlife. Theatre, shopping, and cuisine are readily available and high in quality. Museums, concerts, and first-rate hotels attract tourists, as does Singapore’s mild climate. Singapore has little seasonal temperature change, with Fahrenheit temperatures ranging from the low 70s to the middle 90s. Singapore was the subject of a recent TV episode by famed Chef Anthony Bourdain, who sampled Singapore’s incredible cuisine, including foods and recipes native to the island.
Singaporeans are hard working and highly motivated to continue growing their economy. The free market system provides ample outlets for this ambition. It also allows many Singaporeans to raise their standard of living. Though this competitiveness results in income inequality, over 90 percent of Singaporeans own their own homes. Government policies allow for free market drive and ambition while also eliminating poverty. Singapore has practically no homelessness or food insecurity. Crime rates are extremely low; in fact, Singapore ranks as one of the world’s safest cities. It also ranks as one of the least corrupt places to live and do business. Singaporeans also enjoy some of the highest education and literacy rates.
All of this modern economic advancement has created a thriving gig economy in Singapore. As an avant-garde region, Singapore embraces the sharing economy. In 2014, The Sharing Economy Association was founded in Singapore. Members include AirBnB, Rent Tycoons, Workwander, Uber, Food Panda, and other forward-thinking tech companies.
This has led to a plethora of gig-economy opportunities for ambitious Singaporeans. Work in the gig economy is well-paid, widely available 24/7, and allows workers the freedom of self-directed employment. Many ambitious Singaporeans seek ways to increase their incomes and lead a high-quality life. Sharing-economy gigs provide just the right resource and you can start today on Digigig.
