Youth and Industrialisation in Singapore

Somewhat typical of the developing countries, Singapore has more than half of its 2 million population under 21 years of age and about 70% are under 30. In other words, the proportion of the dependent population is higher than that of the providing population. Singapore, moreover, is a small island state of about 225 square miles, with no natural resources worth speaking of at its disposal.
