An economic fix won’t be enough to ease tensions in Hong Kong

A study by Assoc Prof Alfred M Wu, Assistant Dean (Academic Affairs) and Mr David Ng, Master’s in Public Policy student, both from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at NUS has found that more Hong Kongers now do not believe they are able to achieve success based on their own efforts because the odds in the system are stacked against them. The study also revealed that the younger generation in Hong Kong are driven more by their social values than their own economic interests.
