The Island That Wealth Built

(Bloomberg Markets) -- In January, the photographer Ore Huiying traveled around Singapore to capture scenes of life in the city-state, which is about half as large as Los Angeles geographically. Her images—from a towering luxury-car “vending machine” to a crossback golden arowana, reputedly the world’s most expensive aquarium fish—give a sense of Singapore's prosperity. The nation's gross domestic product per capita, based on purchasing power parity, ranked third in the world in 2018, according to the International Monetary Fund. As recounted in a separate story in the February/March issue of Bloomberg Markets magazine, a shrinking stock market has done little to dull Singapore's luster.
