Singapore: Post Liberal City of the Future

Nathan Gardels, editor of NPQ, originally wrote this article for the Washington Post.

Singapore - Fashionable though it may be to vilify Singapore as just one more historically outmoded dictatorship, a case can be made that it ought to be extolled as a model for the future when the center of gravity of human civilization shifts to Asia.
