Budget 2022: A fiscal plan for social health

In a commentary, SMU Associate Professor of Law Eugene Tan noted that past Budgets since 2006 have attempted to tilt the balance in favour of less well-off Singaporeans, and expressed his hope for Budget 2022 to mark a definitive shift towards governance and policies having a clear-eyed focus on equitable and inclusive outcomes. He believes those who have benefited tremendously from the system can be taxed more, and that there is a need for both redistribution and social mobility in our society, although efforts should be targeted at enhancing social mobility.
