Description - Political Legitimacy and Housing by Beng-Huat Chua

Singapore's successful public housing programme is a source of political legitimacy for the ruling People's Action Party . This text accounts for the success of public housing in Singapore and draws out lessons for other nations. Housing in Singapore, it explains, is seen neither as a consumer good (as in the US) nor as a social right (as in the social democracies of Europe). The author goes on to look at the ways in which Singapore's planners have dealt with the problems of creating communities in a modern urban environment. He concludes that the success of the public housing programme has done much for Singapore.
