The Wider Image: Kazakh metal workers' town thrives on booming demand
On the surface, the Kazakh town of Aksu looks like a Communist stereotype. Its metals factory is the world's biggest and for generations it has provided residents with employment, healthcare, education and leisure. But there's a crucial difference. The Eurasian Resources Group factory is controlled by three billionaires and though the Kazakh government also has a stake it's a far cry from the Communist model of ownership by the proletariat. These days one in five of Aksu's 50,000 residents works at the factory and it is a model for the country's state-sponsored capitalism under which tycoons are responsible for the welfare of "mono towns" that depend on their business.

Singapore said on Friday it will keep income tax unchanged, a surprise move that leaves the top personal rate at 20 percent, and said the small city-state could not insulate itself from global inflation. Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam said that taxpayers will get an income tax rebate of 20 percent with the rebate capped at S$2,000 ($1,415).
