Making an Exception in Singapore
Singapores behind-the-scenes ruler, Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew, has proclaimed a curious double standard for probity in his country. It is fine for him and his family to accept deep discounts on luxury housing and other favors from businessmen. But the rest of the society must not allow itself even a hint of unseemly conduct. In a world where business corruption and payoffs to government officials are common, Singapore has earned a reputation for financial rectitude. Its strict laws and generous salaries for ministers and civil servants have kept it clean and helped it attain an enviable per-capita income of nearly $25,000.

Lee Kuan Yew, who turned a pestilential port called Singapore into a country with living standards to rival those of Europe, is warning leaders of developing nations against viewing debt relief as a panacea for faltering economies and also urging them to avoid the trap of development theories that are more ideological than practical. Mr. Lee, who now bears the title of senior minister for his country and next week opens a series of lectures by world leaders at Harvard, said that writing off or reducing the debt of developing nations -- a policy now supported by rich nations like the United States, Japan and many in Europe -- may only make nations look perennially uncreditworthy and unattractive to investors..

Headliners; Full Court Press
Lee Kuan Yew, the former prime minister of Singapore, seems to have convinced Dow Jones & Co. that athletics is not the only undertaking that involves a home court advantage. Back in 1987, Mr. Lee didnt like something he read in Dow Joness Far Eastern Economic Review. He sued for libel in Singapore and was awarded a judgment in 1989. Dow Jones appealed, and Mr. Lee cross appealed. Then Peter K. Kann, the president of Dow Jones, issued a statement asserting that the judgment was unwarranted. Mr. Lee said he took this to mean that Mr. Kann was accusing him of improperly influencing the trial judge, and he promptly filed three more libel suits against Dow Jones publications in Malaysian and Singaporean courts. Last week, Dow Jones threw in the towel. Mr. Kann issued a statement saying he never meant to defame Mr. Lee in any way. Mr. Lee dropped his pending libel suits, Dow Jones dropped its appeal, the original judgment stands, and Dow Jones will pay Mr. Lees legal fees.
