The main point of my post was that the tax level isn't the central variable.
Singapore does a lot of good things. It pays government burocrats competetive wages with the private sector to forward looking people in government.

I spoke about car as luxury goods being a waste of capital in society.
It has a tax system that means that a BMW 335i costs five times as much as the same car costs in the US.

It prevents ghetto's being created where everybody is poor by preventing on ethic group from taking the majority in a specific neighborhood.

Singapore can spend less on wellfare policies because it has laws that force it's citizen's to provide welfare to family members without a job. You couldn't have the same laws in the US which highly values individual freedom.

If an US politican would campaign on a quota for racial diversity in every local neighborhood I doubt that politician would get elected.
