Hong Kong Versus Singapore – Why Does It (Not) Matter?

From time to time, I have been asked to participate in debates on a perennial topic – ’Which is better – Hong Kong or Singapore?’.  In recent years, I have declined these invitations, for two reasons.  First, most of these debates take place in Singapore where I would be likely to lose the argument. Secondly, and more seriously, there seems to be no point in debating this topic. The results are always inconclusive.
