Unfortunately no, it's been a while since I last researched Singapore. I remember from that time that someone from Singapore also told me that the Singaporian government sometimes gives poor people money to prevent them from starving but when they do that they do it under the hand.

A prime difference is that they don't have individual rights or entitlements. In Singapore policy isn't made because of ideological reasons and because a certain policy is left or right.

A bit Googling finds me an article that describes

(Not being able to edit is annoying with hteml errors...) says Singapore's welfare policy is build on the principle of:

Each generation should pay its own way.

Each family should pay its own way.

Each individual should pay his own way.

Only after passing through these three filters should anyone turn to the government for help. But it will be there when needed.
