recession

    Recommended Posts

    Why? I would say no because South Australia has a few projects happening so there are lots of jobs to choose from. But things can change.

    If you tell enough people there's a recession, people will believe it.

     

    If the wind tells you it's in the air, maybe change what you eat :biglaugh:

    No way. We went through the last recession in the UK. Building just stopped. Here there is loads of work in the building trade. In the UK we talked ourselves into a recession, the news was all doom and gloom every day and we convinced ourselves not to buy houses etc making the situation even worse. Hopefully the media here won't do the same.

    Things don't look to good for the next few months in certain industries. Recession my be a strong word, down turn may be better?

    There are a few jobs out there, but not many people are moving. Sticking safe at the moment seems to be their option.

    The dollars still strong and i know some farmers are struggling because of this. The Aussie market is a hard one to suss out, but good to watch.

     

    I do wonder why they want to limit migration so much, unless of course they can see whats just over the horizon, especially when there was such a HUGE skills shortage not to long ago. Would you want to be in power with a high unemployment rate?

    Flip it over, less people comming means job security for those in work.

    Sensible answer - As a sufferer of SAD syndromemyself, I know how easy it is to get negative and see doom and gloom at every turn . You don't have to let it happen like we seem to have in the UK.

     

    Stay positive!

    As this site is for 'Poms in Adelaide' perhaps the viewpoint is different from those of home-grown Aussies?

    Taffordbark,

     

    you may want to follow this guy's blog

     

    Delusional Economics

     

    He's been posting for a while so there are lots of old blogs to read.

     

    Lots of people think that things are heading downwards - such as chinese demand and Australian house prices. Australians are heavily in debt, the USA economy is struggling, Europe is undergoing 'austery measures' - so some think the world economy will have another meltdown or else a long period of stagnation.

     

    It seems that all the economic indicators are contradictory - one load of statistics will say one thing, the next load will say the exact opposite. So who knows what will happen.

     

    One thing's for sure - the Australian public will be the last to realise what's going on!!
