How to get rich, or queue trying
Singapore is slated to be the world’s richest country, with a forecasted GDP per capita of USD 137,710 by 2050.
It therefore seems counter-intuitive to see lots of people queuing up in the wee hours of the morning, for hours, just to get a free Mcdonald’s Egg McMuffin worth $3.25.
OR maybe this is exactly how Singaporeans build up their wealth. By constantly queuing for free stuff, and hoarding their entire salaries in their mattresses.
We queue for the chance to win big at TOTO, we queue to flip private properties to foreign talent, and now, we queue to not pay for food.
