“I don’t write to persuade people to take my view. I’m trying to persuade people to take a view, based on fact.”
CEO of Future-Moves Group Mr. Devadas Krishnadas was profiled in the 27th November 2016 edition of The Straits Times’ “The Big Read”. With his third and latest book, The Seduction of the Simple, out in bookstores since September, the interview delves into the motivations behind his writing and his perspectives on Singapore’s future.
Throughout his book, Devadas stresses the need for Singapore to continue to stir things up. As Singapore’s politics become more populist, this will serve as a remedy against simplistic thinking and help the city-state stay competitive. This will be increasingly pertinent as Devadas believes that the Singapore story for the future will be “a story of trade-offs”. He calls for the focus to be shifted away from guaranteeing outcomes to ensuring opportunities.
