Latest CNNGo.com "Say What? with mrbrown" column: Singapore in 30 years, according to mrbrown
Okay. The Feds need to stop printing money. Your U.S. dollar is now worth 1.28 of my Singapore dollars, down from 1.36 a few months ago, and I get paid in U.S. dollars for this column. And it's not even a lot of U.S. dollars (hint to my editor to start paying me in Australian dollars).
This is prompting me to think about what Singapore will be like in 30 years time. For one thing, we may have stronger money than the Americans.
This means we may try to buy one of your American football teams. Even if we don't understand your version of football (like we don't understand cricket).
One of our millionaires, Mr Peter Lim, has already tried to buy Liverpool, an English football (the REAL football) team. Who knows? With our penchant for importing foreign talent instead of grooming our own, the Manchester United Red Devils may, in future, be the ManU Red Lions. And with the U.S. dollar going south, maybe the Green Bay Packers will also become the Marina Bay Packers. (cont'd)
