Lee Kuan Yew managed to transform Singapore from a tiny island without any natural resources whatsoever into an economically prospering country. He successfully united the nation to reach what is often called an economic miracle: the combination of private and state capitalism. Lee made Singapore prospering, modern, effective and practically free of corruption – and it created a massive inflow of foreign investors into the country. In the meantime, a lot of people are skeptical about what happens in Singapore in terms of social aspects.
