Singapore is one of the most unique countries in the world, with the smallest area per sq meter and almost no local population, it is a country inhabited by people from all over the world and they constitute the total population of Singapore. It is unique because despite its size and the fact that it is in South Asia, it is one of the developed nations and a good contributor to world GDP. The aim of this study is to see the effect of recession of 2008 on the expatriates in this country; expatriates are the major part of the population of Singapore. A cased based methodology has been used to give an overview, expatriates were interviewed via email and telephone to know about the effect they felt recession had on them.
