Basic needs are met, so people don't have to resort to crime... what a concept. Never see that in America... can't make money doing that.

Abel, Um. Your conclusion is spurious. Just like the narrator, you skim over (or ignore) the last item, which is likely the real reason.

Bill,

If you meant the cameras, London is full of camera's too. Not exactly crime free... In fact there are cameras in most cities and shops around the world. In most of those places there are still crimes.
If you meant the harsh punishments, many countries have harsh laws while still having a high, or at least moderate, crime rate.
America has pretty hefty punishments. Not exactly crime free for example.
The cameras and punishments are a factor.

The main reasons are:
1; That people can earn a decent wage and have a possibility to a job, housing, etc eliminating the need to commit crimes to just get by.

And 2; Just a culture of trying to be fair and honest towards others and not trying to burden others even if you don't know them.
Japan has the same mindset and is famously clean and pretty safe.

It's not fear of being punished that creates a better society for all.
It's you deciding not to be a selfish, intolerant smeghead even if you can get away with it or no one is watching that makes the difference.

Deborah,

Singapore and Japan have homogeneous populations - therefore, mostly homogeneous cultures. But "diversity" is our strength...

Years ago I forgot my bag with my passport, money and pretty much everything else worth needing in a busy Singapore food court. Four hours later I realised what I'd done and went back to find my unopened bag still at the same table.

I tried the same experiment at Starbucks in New York. Unfortunately I got mugged on the way there and had my laptop stolen.

Chrissy,
There are cameras everywhere in your country, too. They're just less obvious.

There are cameras everywhere and the consequences of crime are crazy high. That's the reason the laptop is still there.
