True enough, it also helps if the person telling you has actually lived in that country

We are so far outside the typical predictive pattern after 21 years of uninterrupted growth that it is a wee bit scary to think what might happen once the party ends.
They'll put Bondy back in jail, that's what happened last time, all the rest are dead - they'll have to find a new bunch to throw in the slammer.

I think they blamed the Sheep in 86/87 .... They killed them all....Consequently you could buy a side of lamb for about 8 bucks.

Maybe they'll do the Cows next time around, and we'll get cheap beef .

au is a great place to live but you cannot believe all you read,
you have to sort the facts from government fiction just the same as in many other countries

steve

ps do you believe everything the current uk government tell you? i would think perhaps not
if thats the case apply the same to facts n figures quoted by our lot
The big difference is that YOU are actually living in Australia and not relying on Google for your information on just how the economy is doing.

I take you point and agree with you.
Thankfully you can do your own alternative research for a balanced view. For example using Google, if it's a good enough research tool for Branson with his Billions and Sugar with his Millions it's good enough for me

so UBS fires many people in London and Connecticut, but not in Sydney. they must know where the real money is.

feel sorry for the guys whose work passes did not work when they tried to pass through the turnstiles.

May-2000 $45,900 3.59%
May-2001 $47,793 4.12%
May-2002 $50,253 5.15%
May-2003 $53,414 6.29%
May-2004 $54,938 2.85%
May-2005 $58,583 6.64%
May-2006 $59,873 2.20%
May-2007 $62,894 5.05%
May-2008 $65,686 4.44%
May-2009 $69,493 5.79%
May-2010 $73,148 5.26%

Anyone know the last two average pay rises? Looks incredible though, when you think what the average pay rise has been in the UK, over the last 10 years or more, the wage gap has really widened according to the figures.

Well I have been sunning myself for two weeks, have I missed anything?

Is the Australian economy still growing?
Is there still no sign of recession?
Is it on, for a straight 22nd year of economical growth?
