Resumo da história de Lee Kuan Yew – New York Times para complementar tem esse outro texto da The Economist
Encerro com uma citação curiosa do Lee Kuan Yew em uma entrevista
Gardels | Anything else besides multicultural tolerance that enabled Singapore’s success?
Lee | Air conditioning. Air conditioning was a most important invention for us, perhaps one of the signal inventions of history. It changed the nature of civilization by making development possible in the tropics.
Without air conditioning you can work only in the cool early morning hours or at dusk. The first thing I did upon becoming prime minister was to install air conditioners in buildings where the civil service worked. This was key to public efficiency.
