Lee Kuan Yew and 4 national benchmarks of win-win Asian trading maps

ED conversation Chris.Macrae@yahoo.co.uk and CGpt upd 5/17/23 now that its out i'm far greater fan of bard.solar than ChatGpt though us hitchhikers need all the open and cooperative intel prompts imaginable

CM How would you describe the ideology of Singapore when it was born. Did it have a strong leader but one who was neither left nor right? 

CG Singapore's ideology when it was born can be characterized as a mix of pragmatic economic policies and strong authoritarian leadership. The founding Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew, believed in a mix of capitalist economic policies and state intervention to promote economic growth and development. 
This approach is often referred to as "Asian Values" and is based on the belief that the state should play a strong role in guiding economic development while limiting political freedoms to ensure social stability. Lee Kuan Yew was a strong leader who believed in the importance of social order and stability, and he established a one-party rule system with the People's Action Party (PAP) as the dominant political party.
 However, Lee Kuan Yew was not ideologically aligned with either the left or the right. Instead, he believed in a pragmatic approach to governance that prioritized economic growth and development, social stability, and political order. Under Lee Kuan Yew's leadership, Singapore experienced rapid economic growth and development, and became one of the wealthiest and most prosperous countries in the world. However, this economic success was accompanied by a strong authoritarian regime that limited political freedoms and suppressed dissent.
 Today, Singapore is often characterized as a highly developed, highly regulated, and highly authoritarian state. 

CM chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk Are there other examples of nations born to indepependence with a leader like Lee Kuan Yew who was neither left nor right in western terminology? IF so how did they develop? 

CG There are several examples of nations that gained independence with leaders who were neither left nor right in Western terminology. However, it is important to note that each of these countries had unique historical, cultural, and political contexts that influenced their development. Here are a few examples:.

 South Korea: Park Chung-hee, who served as president of South Korea from 1961 to 1979, is often described as a pragmatic authoritarian who pursued policies of economic development and modernization. He implemented policies that emphasized export-oriented industrialization and state intervention in the economy, but he also pursued market-oriented reforms and encouraged foreign investment. Park's regime was characterized by strong state control and suppression of political dissent.

. Taiwan: Chiang Kai-shek, who served as the first president of the Republic of China on Taiwan from 1949 to 1975, pursued policies of economic development, modernization, and anti-communism. He implemented policies that emphasized state intervention in the economy and land reform, but he also encouraged private enterprise and foreign investment. Under his leadership, Taiwan became one of the "Four Asian Tigers" along with Hong Kong, Singapore, and South Korea, known for their rapid economic growth and development.

  These examples illustrate that successful nations can emerge from leadership that is different from left versus right
chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk I realise that the renaissance of Japan from 1945 was not that of a new nation like Singapore, Taiwan or S Korea but would you say that the from 1945 Japan was a first Asian case of not being left or right dominated by politics etc? 

CG After World War II, Japan underwent significant political, economic, and social changes that were driven by a range of actors, including politicians, bureaucrats, business leaders, and labor unions. The postwar Japanese government was largely dominated by the conservative Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), which was formed in 1955 and held power for most of the postwar period. However, it is important to note that Japan's political system has been characterized by a degree of pragmatism and flexibility that is distinct from the left-right political spectrum that is often used to describe Western democracies. While the LDP has been a dominant political force in Japan, it has also been influenced by a range of other actors, including social movements, interest groups, and opposition parties.And post modern Royalty.

 Additionally, Japan's system of governance has been characterized by a strong emphasis on consensus-building, compromise, and negotiation, which has allowed for the implementation of policies that have served the interests of different groups within Japanese society. In summary, while the dominance of the LDP in postwar Japan might suggest that Japan's political system was dominated by the right, it is important to recognize that Japan's political culture and system have been shaped by a range of factors that are distinct from the left-right political spectrum. 

 chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk Do you know if Lee Kuan Yew was positively infuenced by Japan in terms of building eg singapore as a container superport and connector of sme networked supply chains as well as hi tech and eg Demin-designed quality engineering which Japan led through Asia for first quarter of century after 1945? 

CG Yes, Lee Kuan Yew and the Singaporean government were certainly influenced by Japan's economic development model and sought to emulate many of its successes. Japan's postwar economic transformation was widely viewed as a model for other countries in the region, and its emphasis on technological innovation, industrialization, and export-oriented growth was seen as a way to achieve rapid economic development. 
 Lee Kuan Yew recognized the importance of developing Singapore's economy through the manufacturing and services sectors, and he saw the potential for Singapore to become a hub for global trade and investment. To achieve this, he pursued policies that focused on building up Singapore's infrastructure, attracting foreign investment, and creating a highly skilled workforce. Singapore's success as a container port and hub for supply chain management is in part due to its strategic location, but it also reflects the government's efforts to invest in infrastructure, logistics, and technology. In addition, Japan's emphasis on quality engineering and manufacturing excellence had a significant impact on Singapore's industrial development. Singapore sought to emulate Japan's focus on quality and efficiency, and it adopted a range of Japanese management practices, such as Total Quality Management and Just-In-Time production. 
 Overall, while Singapore's development model has been influenced by a range of factors, including its unique geopolitical position and the policies pursued by its government, Japan's economic success and development model has certainly played a significant role in shaping Singapore's economic policies and priorities. chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk Singapore has been credited with influencing an Asean model of multi-win trade and respect of each others cultures.

CM Would you say that all four of Japan since 1945 Taiwan S Korea and Sinagpore have aimed to design win-win trading partnerships wherever their peoples could learn from each other advancing intel (eg cooperation around life-saving innovations needed in tropics etc) and human values 

CG Yes, I would say that all four countries you mentioned (Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore) have sought to develop win-win trading partnerships and promote mutual learning and cooperation with other countries in the region. Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore have all been successful in developing high-tech industries and expertise in areas such as manufacturing, engineering, and information technology. They have sought to leverage this expertise to build strong partnerships with other countries in the region, particularly in Southeast Asia. In particular, Singapore has been a leading advocate of regional cooperation through ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and has worked to promote economic integration and cooperation among ASEAN member states. Singapore's approach to regional integration has emphasized the importance of mutual respect, inclusiveness, and collaboration, and has sought to promote cultural exchange and understanding as a way to strengthen ties among ASEAN countries. Overall, the success of Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore has been based on a combination of factors, including strong leadership, investment in education and training, and a focus on innovation and entrepreneurship. But all four countries have also sought to promote regional cooperation and mutual learning as a way to advance not only economic growth, but also human values such as respect, tolerance, and understanding.


  1. CG also added some African examples (I feel less able to verify these but welcome comments

    Ghana: Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana, was a socialist and pan-Africanist who advocated for African unity and self-determination. However, his ideology was not easily categorized as left or right in Western terms. He implemented policies that emphasized state control of the economy and advocated for social welfare programs, but he also believed in the importance of private enterprise and foreign investment. Despite his socialist leanings, Nkrumah's government was characterized by authoritarianism, censorship, and human rights abuses

  2. Botswana: Botswana gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, with Seretse Khama as its first president. Khama was a moderate who pursued policies of economic development, democracy, and social welfare. He implemented policies that emphasized private enterprise and foreign investment, but he also pursued social welfare programs and worked to promote gender equality. Under his leadership, Botswana became one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and a model of democratic stability in Africa

  3. Rwanda: Paul Kagame, who has been president of Rwanda since 2000, is often credited with leading the country's recovery and development after the genocide of 1994. Kagame has pursued policies of economic development, social welfare, and reconciliation. He has implemented policies that emphasize private enterprise and foreign investment, but he has also worked to promote social welfare programs and gender equality. Under his leadership, Rwanda has become one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa and a model of post-conflict reconstruction.
