    • 5 Small Countries With Too Many People

      Popcornews December 28,2014

      The sovereign state of Singapore is an island country on the south east side of Asia. Apart from the main island, the state also includes 60 small islets.

      As of 2014, Singapore’s population was estimated at nearly 5.5 million people. Considering that the total area is about 700 square km and the density is 8,000 people per square km, it’s safe to say that Singapore is a crowded country with too many people living in it.

      There have been many talks about Singapore’s number of residents, and it looks like the nation is thinking of organizing an anti-government manifestation in an attempt to boost the island’s population with 30% by 2030. Ironically, Singapore is already overpopulated; however, it does have some pretty tough laws, laws that control society and limit its prosperity levels.

      Currently, Singapore features an incredibly developed economic system based on extended trading. Together with Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea, the nation is one of the 4 Asian Tigers. In the eyes of the residents, the Singaporean economy is innovative, competitive, business-friendly, and ultimately, free.

      According to the Index of Economic Freedom, as of 2013 Singapore was ranked 2nd freest economy types in the whole world, after Hong Kong.

    • how many is too many?

      If one look in term of density of people /sq km only, Singapore would rank No.1 in the world according to Wikipedia. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Population_density.

      Too many or not, it is subjective, so decide for yourself whether it is or not.

      is "too many" bringing the economy down?

       

      Not at the moment, but should the economy face any downturn due to bad policies or circumstances beyond our control, we will be in trouble.

    • Singapore is just a city, all cities have population density.  That's the definition of "city".
