《不平等的样貌》Chinese edition of This is What Inequality Looks Like

The Chinese edition of This is What Inequality Looks Like has been published by Taiwanese publisher Linking Publishing 联经出版. It was meticulously and thoughtfully translated by translator 方祖芳 and includes a generous introduction by Associate Professor Ke-hsien Huang 黄克先 of National Taiwan University. I’m immensely grateful for their labor and pleased to have this opportunity to reach more readers.

Readers in Singapore may also purchase it at Kinokuniya and Grassroots Book Room.

A new website

Welcome to my new website. I have set this page up as a place to share links and information about my books, op-eds, and research.

The last few months have been busy. A new, second edition of This Is What Inequality Looks Like hit bookstores in May 2019. I wrote and recorded a new Afterword for this edition. 

May also saw the launch of “What older people need in Singapore: A households budgets study”, a Minimum Income Standard research project I undertook with collaborators, Ng Kok Hoe, Neo Yu Wei, and Ad Maulod. Please watch and share this short explainer video:

Finally, I have been involved with Academia.sg, a new initiative which several scholars have launched to promote Singapore studies and to encourage critical debate about the state of intellectual life in Singapore.

You can find out more about my other books and publications at this page, which I will update from time to time. I will also post links to my op-eds on this blog. Thank you for reading.
