How to be financially free?

Remember the yokel is strengthened with consumption and time leased ownership(cars' COEs, leasehold property)

Cut unnecessary consumption.

Want to drive car, be the slave if you spend more than 15% of income on transportation. Stupid/Poor ppl deserve to be where they are for a reason.

Do u think MAS will step in and tell the bank or the insurer this is inappropriate ?
And that the banks/insurance co cannot do a they like ?

So why CPF can just do this ? shifting the maturity date as they like ?
Shifting also the payment method ?

Good ? Think again.
CPF for your housing is so that they can increase the housing price to whatever they want it to be and when u still can use your CPF to pay, it is then deemed affordable.

Most will slog their whole life, pay for their house and left with nothing by the time they reach retirement age
