So we bend our backs making this city great and get priced out in terms of housing...what we earn gets right back in to the system through high rentals...no deals (in living here) to be had I guess...why are we all here then? lets colonize a new place...build a country in the middle of the ocean and do what we did in dubai...and get first rights to rental rates...atleast that way we can (in our lifetimes) get an awesome place within reasonable rates...the city will take care of itself...btw...the idea is copyrighted to moi!

It was the high living costs that made me decide to go for Saudi over dubai. Need to think about savings too.

we could do the next version of that with better weather and call it New Sealand...

there's a guy in western austrailia that found a loophole in the law so created his own country called "hutt river principality" and even gave himself the title of Prince Leonard... he basically did it for tax reasons but they have their own visas and passports etc...

so as we're on the idea of this new place at the early stages... do we get royalty titles?

Piccassoo, if Dubai was soooo great way back when, why didnt you buy as oposed to rent

I find if you put your money where your mouth is you tend to be less bitter later down the line.
